Al-Mazrouei admitted her lack of inclination to artistically market herself on social media and digital spaces, and her shortcomings in this aspect, adding: “I may have wronged myself, but I do not like (social media), nor do I have time or space to display contents without any goal or message. I am not against these media, but I care more about developing my experience and appearing in a way that befits my talent and makes my fans happy.

For this reason, I had to think outside the box and search for new artistic windows that would allow me to renew my experiences and views of the audience. Although I am proud of the wide number of beautiful participations in successful and well-known Emirati works, I hope that Emirati drama makers and producers pay attention to the importance of openness to external creative experiences, whether Gulf or Arab, which today has become a demand and condition that cannot be ignored in the equation (artistic renewal). The UAE is characterized by an open environment that, in turn, allows for the deepening of successful and influential creative encounters and cross-pollination.

And succeeded (From Your Sweetness), which is one of the songs of the new album, in winning the Cairo Academy Award for the video clip, after it was directed by the Iraqi Haider Karim.
