Extensive Definition

Milky A dance production group based out of Italy. The act consists of producers Giordiano Trivellato and Giuliano Sacchetto, with Egyptian/German singer Sabrina Elahl serving as their lead singer on most of their tracks.
Even though their 2003 album "Star" features another artist named Guidy, who was the original lead singer, most of the tracks were rerecorded by Elahl, who not only took the Milky name, but is the only visible person who performs outside the studio.
Two of the tracks from the album eventually became hits in United States: "Just The Way You Are" reached the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart on October 17, 2003. In September 2005, '"Be My World" peaked at number 6 on the same music chart, charting also Sweden.
milky in Spanish: Milky
