Stromae – Tous Le Mêmes
Do you know Stromae? Because if not, we need to talk.
Tous Le Mêmes – STROMAE
Electronic pop maestro Stromae was raised in Belgium by his mother; his Rwandan father was killed in the Tutsi Genocide in 1994. He blew up in 2011 and in 2013, won best Belgian artist at the MTV Europe Music Awards. His pencil-thin stature and sultry demeanour hurls a can of paint onto the neat and orderly boxes neatly labeled ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ that we created and choose to live by.
Formidable – STROMAE
As you can see, each video possesses something peculiar, unique. This, coupled with moving, nuanced lyrics and fetching melodies makes for electronic magic.
Papoutai – STROMAE
While I’m not in love with all his music — some of it gets a little too Euro-dancey for my ears — Stromae can pack a punch with some mean music.
