Hip hop meets the hillside in this poetic and compelling rap video by Hussein Al-Smadi. Amongst the stunning backdrop of Ajloun’s trees, hills, and cliffs, Hussein draws us in with what we at first assume must be an ode to a lover. Over the course of the song, it becomes clear that he is in fact singing about his love for his homeland of Ajloun, Jordan. Hussein wrote the lyrics to the rap himself, calling it “Ajloun in the Heart”. The viewer cannot help but to begin to share Hussein’s admiration for Ajloun, when bearing witness to it’s beautiful nature and distinctive views.
