Bassima started her career with some famous songs like Washwashny Habibi Sammaani Kalam - Whisper To Me and Fee Orbak we Boedak Hayati Ashanak. Bassima worked closely with famous Lebanese singer and composer Marwan Khoury, who started writing and composing songs at the time of her first album Dawwabni Doub.

Bassima then signed with prominent record label company Rotana. Bassima continued working with Marwan Khoury in her second album Andi Soual (I Have a Question!), and third album Einy Ya Mo.

Bassima gave birth and she was away from the scene for sometime. Marwan Khoury wanted to give the song Etalla Feyyi to Bassima but because she was away for maternity, he felt that the song was being ignored, so he gave it Carole Samaha and it achieved a huge success when Carole filmed it with prominent Lebanese director Nadine Labaki.

Bassima was deeply disappointed and upset and cooperation stopped between the two since then. However Bassima still compliments Marwan's works and says she could still work with him again.
