Shaq tackles singing in Khaleeji in Yas Island video

Shaquille O’Neal trades shooting hoops in the favour of dropping bars – in Arabic.

The NBA star featured in the Yas Island Abu Dhabi’s latest instagram video which saw him singing in Khaleeji Arabic.

The song O’neal sings is Yas Island’s latest summer anthem, just launched this year.

The song is part of Yas Island annual summer anthems tradition. The summer anthem is often a spin on one of the many popular nostalgic tunes.

This year’s song is a remake of the hit song ‘AACHAW’.

The new rendition is designed to reflect the vibrant and energetic spirit of the destination, encouraging everyone to embrace #FunHasNoAge and enjoy the attractions and entertainment options.

Yas Island Abu Dhabi’s campaign builds on the last year’s anthem with the Kuwaiti ‘Miami Band’ to celebrate its vibrant and energetic spirit.

This year’s anthem marks Yas Island’s fourth summer song, following its initial hit, Stayin on Yas.
