At the age of twelve she participated in a TV program called Noujoum Al Mostakbal, and won a golden medal/Tarab category. Afterwards, Nancy disappeared from the public eye and started studying vocal and music theory with music teachers in Lebanon. Although she was less than 18 years old, the syndicate of professional artists in Lebanon accepted her as a member because they found her to be an exceptional talent charts and the lead singles were her biggest failure to-date.

In 2004 Ajram released her fourth album Ah W Noss ("Yes, and a half"), which also spawned several videos.

She was named as the best Arabic singer by the magazine Zahrat el Khalij for both 2003 and 2004. She was also dubbed by the Arabic version of Newsweek as one of the most influential personalities of the Arab world in 2005.

In early 2006, she released a single, Enta Masry ("You're Egyptian"), timed to coincide with Egypt's hosting of the African Cup of Nations football tournament. Its accompanying video is unusual in that the singer does not appear. Instead, Egyptians representing the diversity of the country lip-sync the patriotic lyrics of the song.

Yatabtab...Wa Dalla was released in February 2006.The title song's video, again directed by Nadine Labaki, preceded its release. The music video's story was widely based on the classic Italian movie, La Strada.

"Ehsas Jdeed" is widely considered to be the most successful song of Ajram's Ya Tabtab...Wa Dallaa album. Early this June, a music video for the song 'Elli Kan' taken off her album Ya Tabtab...Wa Dallaa was released, promoting the new Damas jewellery Ajram is currently endorsing. At around the same time, the new commercial for Coca-Cola was released, carrying another new song entiltled 'El Donia Helwa' (Life is Good).
