With empowering lyrics and a highly produced music video, the new single under the title “‘Pas Le Choix” (no choice) sees a personal addition in the cast. The newly-wed singer featured her husband in the video as a bartender. The song made a sensation on social media and has already amassed more than 500k views on Youtube in less than 24 hours after its release.
One week ago, the young singer was wrapped up in plagiarism rumors. French rapper named Rocka French RapQueen, claimed that Manal reused some of her lyrics from a freestyle she posted on Instagram, in the hit single ‘Slay’.

Repost de la Réédition de l’un de mes premiers freestyle sorti en septembre ! ⚜️ Surprise de voir qu’une chanteuse marocaine du nom de MANAL a sorti le 28 novembre un son dont le début EST TOUT MON TEXTE 😡 Après ma signature en Label je compte m’attaquer à ce problème 😈🏴☠️ #rockaofficial #ropgang #lpnjf
While her co-songwriter and rapper ElGrande Toto reacted to the controversy by showing evidence of the track’s original date, August 2018 (which happens to be earlier than RapQueen’s freestyle September 2018), Manal chose to remain silent, until she released a new single under the title “‘Pas Le Choix” (no choice).
