Mondialement vôtre is a multi-language album released by Dalida in 1982. This album contains new French single material, plus other language versions of Dalida previous hits and a new Arabic Medley called "Aghani Aghani" that is the biggest hit of the album.

This Medley became a huge hit in the Arab World and shot to number 1 on radio Airplay charts of all Arab countries from Lebanon to Egypt, Jordan, Maghreb, Tunis, Syria and Gulf countries. The Medley is still played heavily in Arab Night Clubs (notably in Lebanon), in weddings, school plays and on Arab Radios, it is a classic disco remix medley of a big number of huge Arab immortal hits thus making it a classical hit in the Arab world.

Dalida did a world tour after the release of this album and was on demand in all Arab countries that she toured during this period. Dalida status in the Arab world became so big that she was considered a living legend and her name entered every household since then. Dalida is now considered one of the biggest Divas of the occidental and oriental world and she is the only artist who achieved such a high profile in both regions.
