Corneille

As i mentioned before, the biggest discovery for me from the M6 Music Live concert last month was Corneille, a French RNB / Soul artist, who has a great voice and really beautiful music.

I bought his album “Parce Qu’On Vient De Loin” a few days ago, and i’ve been listening to it in the car these days, and it’s really cool.

He reminds me a lot of the kind of music that got me so into RNB & Soul back in the 90’s. It’s as if you put Silk, Shai, Blackstreet and Boyz II Men in a blender, mixed them, and then created one man with what you got out of that, and then switched the language to French instead of English, lol…

He’s actually the first true French RNB / Soul artist i’ve heard and liked.

In the concert he sang his hit song “Parce Qu’On Vient De Loin” and then a duet with Cheb Mami called “Du nord au Sud”, which is a very nice reggae like song.
And like all great artists, he’s so much better live than on recording.

I think he has a great future ahead of him and wish him a lot of luck 🙂
I hope he keeps coming out with great music for my ears to enjoy 🙂
