Topping our No. 6 is from two Arabic singers Mohamed Ramadan and Saad Lamjarred, their new single music video Ensay. The whole video is around 7 minutes, it feels more like a music movie. With an interesting storyline and catchy music, this piece stands out in the group of more common Arabic hit dance songs. This song is very modern and different. Highly recommend if any of you are a fan of this type of music.

Top 7 is a 30-second commercial video from Claro Brasil. Qual é o seu próximo novo? Claro is one of the top mobile carriers in Latin America. This ad promotes its upcoming 4.5G internet service. Yes, you read that right, 4.5G. Before 5G hits the market, carriers around the globe are competing. However, several carriers in the United States are twisting the idea of 5G, and tried to use 5G as a marketing tool to mask the 4G product. AT&T’s “5G E,” Verizon’s “5G Home.”

Even though most people know 4G is still 4G, but this trick is being imitated by many foreign carriers. Right now carrier Claro has a “4.5G” internet logo, it looks faker than the 5G one. Claro said that the latest 4.5G is 10x of the current speed of 4G internet, however, it is not the real 5G. The 4.5G saying isn’t really confirmed by the 3GPP organization.

People were not expecting the sexy Sam, some comments here:

Right now Sam’s YouTube has 11.2 million followers. 12 posts and 105.5 total views!
