“Desert Rose” is a song by British recording artist Sting from his album Brand New Day (1999). The song depicts Adam’s agony after he was banished from Eden. Eve is referred to as the “desert rose”. Riding a wave of pre-9/11 interest in Latin and Arabic cultures, the song peaked at No. 2 in Canada, No. 3 in Switzerland, No. 4 in Italy, No. 15 in the UK, and No. 17 in the US. The song is noted for Sting’s duet performance with Algerian raï singer Cheb Mami, creating a distinct world music feel to the song.
