In 2003 her third album, Ya Salam ("How Fantastic") included the song Akhasmak Ah ("I'll taunt you"), which became an enormous hit, as did its provocative music video. Reminiscent of older Arabic films, it features the singer as a cafe manager who dances for and flirts with her customers. Two other singles from the album were shot as music videos: Ya Salam had Ajram playing a 1930s style cabaret performer, while Yay (Sehr Oyoono) ("Oh,the Magic of his Eyes") became a mini-drama with Ajram discovering romance as a demure Beirut hairdresser.

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

In 2005, Ajram signed a contract for a Coca-Cola endorsement. "Oul Taany Keda" ("Tell Me That Again") from Ah W Noss was used in the commercials, and its video contains Coke product placement.
