A music video by Saudi singer Tariq Al Harbi was released “Erheb”, which has been trending on YouTube for over a week now. Although the song is seemingly catchy and a lot of people seem to enjoy it, others see otherwise. An article by Arab News went into the societal paradigm of the song’s seeming representation of the ‘Darbawi’ people. 

The song is currently number 2 on YouTube’s trending list.

The Darbawis are usually referred to as the ‘Saudi Punks’

In the song, Al- Harbi showcases the ‘typical’ traits or hobbies that most Darbawis partake in, like desert camping, pickup truck drifting or even having a ‘Mirinda’ soda. According to Arab News, many commentators feel that the video mocks the culture and ‘might send the wrong message.’
