Mai Selim Hamdan (Arabic: مي سليم حمدان‎) (born in 1983 in Dubai), commonly Known as Mai Selim, is a young Arabic artist who started off her singing career in early 2005. Sister of Comedian Mais Hamdan. Born in Dubai to a Jordanian father, and a Lebanese mother Mai soon came to settle in Egypt where she grew up and met most of her close friends. Her love for arts and performing started at a very young age, and she wanted to be a ballerina, later on she shifted towards singing, where she joined the school choir. She moved form performing with a group to performing within a duet.

After graduating high school Mai toyed with the idea of joining Institute of Cinema in Egypt, but her parents didn’t agree. "They talked me into seeing it their own way by talking me into the idea of having a stable future and a career life" she says. Instead she registered for a degree at the Maritime Academy majoring in Business Administration. The corporate world of facts and figures seems so far removed from her personality, yet she insisted on finishing and getting her degree. Looking back, Mai wonders what she would have done with a business degree if she had not signed with a music company.

She has no problem admitting that she owes her first record deal to pure luck. "I won't lie and give you the clichéd line of I've been working towards this all my life since I was a child and all that stuff. I knew I had a very strong artistic side to me, and I had a strong passion towards music, but I never thought I'd make a career out of it one day" she admits. One night, as she was invited for dinner, she met Tarek Al Arian, the well known film director. Read more on Last.fm.
