Freedom of driving is a big deal. The world has been hailing a historic achievement ever since Saudi women were granted that right on June 24. Among them is Leesa A, who composed a song the same day of the first driving licenses’ distribution.
Leesa celebrated the glory of the historic 10/10 date. “You seem to forget that today is the 10th, that means there are no taxis,” she says, referring to the 10 Shawwal, the tenth month of the lunar-based Islamic calendar. “I’m not kidding, today I can drive. The steering wheel in my hands, the pedals under my foot.
Leesa also offered safety advice to women driving on busy roads, stressing the importance of buckling up.
A week after its release, the video accounts for nearly a million views on YouTube, and more than 600,000 on Instagram. A record for the Saudi singer.
