Her debut album Saken (1996) was one of the best selling albums of 1996، being certified platinum by Haddad's label Stallions Records. The album also introduced Haddad and her Bedouin music style to the public.

Haddad's biggest breakthrough came in late 1997 when she released her third album Ammanih accompanied with a major hit single of the same title. During this time، Haddad formed a successful team with her Emirati ex-husband Suhail Al-Abdul who directed all of her music videos up until 2005 when she decided to work with new directors.

Haddad also stepped out of her comfort zone when she started performing in dialects other than Lebanese and Bedouin in her fourth studio album Yammaya (1998) which included songs in Khaliji، Iraqi، and Egyptian dialects. Hadded's career saw ups and downs، but overall she was able to produce memorable hit singles. These include songs like "Saken" and "Ammanih" in the 1990s، "Mani Mani"، "Mas & Louly"، and "Ya Aibo" in the 2000s، "La Fiesta" and "Ela Hona" in the 2010s.

Haddad comes from the southern Lebanese town of Maghdouche، although born in the Mountain town of Bsalim. The track "Maghdouche" from her sixth studio album Jarh Al Habib was devoted to her hometown.

In the 1990s، Haddad got married to Emirati businessman Suhail Al-Abdul. Together، they have two daughters: Sophie (born 19 July 1996) and Mira (born 26 November 2007). Haddad is Al-Abdul's second wife.

The couple was divorced in August 2009; after which Al-Abdul got remarried in 2010. The divorce was not as publicized as Lebanese musician Nawal Al Zoghbi's divorce which occurred one year prior to Haddad's and drew media attention due to custody issues.

Haddad explained that she is on good terms with her ex-husband and they agreed to share custody of their children. When Haddad was still a teenager when got married to Al-Abdul، who was an older and richer music director and businessman from the U.A.E. She was criticized by the press who called her marriage a marriage of convenience. Haddad has always stated that her marriage was out of love and not for wealth.
