Khaled Hadj Ibrahim (Arabic: خالد حاج إبراهيم‎, born 29 February 1960), better known by his mononym Khaled (Arabic: خالد‎, pronounced [ˈxaːled]), is an Algerian musician, singer and songwriter born in Oran, Algeria. He began recording in his early teens under the name Cheb Khaled (الشاب خالد, Arabic for “Young” Khaled, as opposed to the traditionalist Sheikh elders). He was crowned “King of Raï” in the first Raï festival in Oran and has since become the world’s best-known Arab singer ever. His most famous songs are “Didi”, “El Arbi”, “Aïcha” and “C’est la vie” as well as “Alech Taadi”, which was prominently featured in the 1997 film The Fifth Element.
