Editors’ Notes "The Engineer of the Arabic song"—one of the monikers bestowed on Majed Al Mohandes by the Arabic pop faithful—alludes to the Saudi singer's original field of study. Yet the humble vocalist has never been accused of being a technician—he's always been about heart, which makes his “Tenadeek” an obvious choice for Best Single of 2016. The sensuous, emotive vocal delivery that’s defined his ascent to fame is delicately accompanied by the gentle, rhythmic instrumentation emblematic of the Khaleeji musical tradition.
