In recent years, Stromae, the great renovator of Belgian pop and song lyrics, has preferred to take a back seat, far from the spotlight.
During this break, he did not remain inactive, collaborating with other artists (Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Coldplay, Orelsan, etc…), or continuing to develop his clothing brand and his label Mosaert. Today, he is a father, fulfilled and regenerated, and crowned with success with his third album.
The thirty-year-old got us used to excellence on Cheese (2010) and Racine carrée (2013), so there was no doubt about his ability to sign other hits on a par with Formidable or Papaoutai and to continue to play his songs live with an uncommon strength of interpretation.
