Darine (Arabic: دارين‎) (born 1984) is a Swedish singer-songwriter. With two albums in account, her breakthrough was her debut hit single "Aiwa" on her album Ma Rulez. In 2006, she released the album My Compliments.


Darine was born in Tripoli, Lebanon to a Lebanese father and half-Swedish, half-Romanian mother. She grew up with a passion for R&B and hip hop music and pursued a career in producing and performing such music. Darine resides and is a citizen of Sweden. She claims that though the fact that most her music is directed to hip-hop, R&B loving Arab audience, Sweden was a good place to cultivate her talent where she ended up with her buddy producer, SoulClap.



Darine's "Aiwa" became popular for the simple lyrics, heavy hip hop beat rotations, and sounds of Oriental string instruments. The song was released in summer 2004, produced by EMI music Arabia & PRO Music.

After the success of the first single, Darine released her album Ma Rulez, which included two versions of the song "Aiwa" along with 18 new tracks. The album included "Ja Leily" (pronounced "Ya Leily"). This was Darine's second single, but the music video had a different version of the previously included track in the album. The album was produced Darin SoulClap, who Darine was introduced to in the summer of 2002. Darine relaunched a music video for her first hit "Aiwa", which was not well received as the track already had a video. The broadcast of the new music video didn't last long.
