Listen To This: The Biggest Star You Probably Don't Know

| Filed under: Listen To ThisFrancophiliaStromae

It's a shame Stromae isn't a huge star in America and all over the world!

The French-rapping and singing musician from Belgium is such a mega talent!

He makes music that sounds unlike anyone else's! And his videos are equally fresh and dope!

If you're unfamiliar with him, then get acquainted with the sickening Tous Les Mêmes above!

Then you must CLICK HERE to listen to more music from Stromae!

    To clear it out, Stromae (real name Paul Van Haver) is a Belgian, born in Etterbeek (Brussels) but of mixed Belgian/Ruandese origin. He still lives in Brussels, the capital of Belgium and sings in French (actually a local street dialect of it), the main language in Brussels. He released 2 cd's who sell millions in Europe and a few before as mc/producer of a rap crew. Now he makes music that is a mix of western (rap/dance/…) and african (zouk, …) music, wich is fully self produced. You can find more info about him here:

    He's already huge in Europe, Canada and other countries. Americans are in their own little bubble

    "Tous les mêmes" is great, but "Formidable" is by far the best song and the best clip we've seen in a very long time, and I mean on a global level. For those of you who don't understand French, look at the subtitled version on (>65 million views by the way)

    Stromae, un artiste complet. musique, paroles, productions, logo, design de ses vêtements… et plus de vues sur youtube que Madonna, Gaga et autres réunis…Parviens à faire danser, et ça c'est unique, sur des propos mélancoliques. Rafle tous les prix qu'il y a à gagner en Belgique France et ailleurs. Et si pour certains, ne pas être connu aux Usa, signifie n'être personne, moi je réponds : mieux vaut être super méga star en Europe avec 65 millions de vues, et le plein de trophées, qu'être connu dans quelques états et des centaines de vues à peine…

    Re: divinah – The big money kahuna is Asia. China 1.35 Billion, India 1.2 Billion residents in just those two countries not even counting Indonesia. U.S. = 330 million.
    Europe does its own thing for Europe.

    (Papa) Où, t'es où, t'es où, papa où t'es ? Where are you daddy? (he's of Ruandan origin)

    Tout le monde sait comment on fait les bébés, Mais personne sait comment on fait des papas
    The whole world knows how to make babies, but no one knows how to make daddies.

    What's in a word, hey?

    Re: MichCine
    Ecrire en français, c'est comme le problème de Stromae pour faire reconnaitre ses talents dans le monde anglo/Writing in french is the same as Stromae's problem in having his talents recongnized in the Anglo world.

    Actually, I was wondering is the bizarre videoclips of this top artist are not 'too european' for american standards?
    This Belgian artist (singing in French) is really top. A great musician, good composer and very friendly guy!
    This is a very funny clip (in French) about the making of his song 'alors on danse'.
    I hope Stromae will be known in the States very soon.
    A proud Belgian

    'French-rapping and singing' would technically be correct, since Perez does point out that he's from Belgium and not everyone knows about Marols.

    'franco' means its french spoken dumb daft dildo's!! Belgians speak dutch, french or german.
    And almost every belgian understands english!

    Re: alloallo
    francophilia doesn't refer to France only but to countries where we speak French.
    Also people he never said he was French he said he sang in French, please read correctly and don't get too over things cause you don't understand what he writes.

    French-rapping and singing doesn't mean he's french !! it is writen : from belgium, means he's a belgian man speaking in French. All true. He's not speaking Flemish. +1 OAZ ! And Please all look at the wonderful "Formidable" video clip ;)
