7 French Artists You Need To Listen To Right Now

I might not be able to understand French, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying these incredible artists' music.

7 French Artists You Need To Listen To Right Now

I literally can understand nothing of French except 's'il vous plais' and some Stromae lyrics. But don't let not understanding a language stop you from indulging in some beautiful music. I don't know if you're like this, too, but I go through phases of being obsessed with different genres and types of music, and right now it's French house/pop/modern music. Here are some of my favorites in the French Indie Pop scene as of now:

1. Stromae

Literally, any and all of this Belgian artist's music is a complete and utter masterpiece. He sings about anything from cancer (quand c’est?), his frustration of unrealistic love stories (Tous Les Memes), fatherlessness (Papaoutai), Twitter and the plight of social media (Carmen), and dancing your problems away (Alors on Danse).

2. Zaz

I don't know how else to describe her music except for super chill dance-y French music. She's best known for her work, "Je Veux".

3. Jain

This artist's music is soooo neat. She uses a lot of seamless language code-switching throughout many of her songs. Her songs and music videos are also so artfully done.

4. Vianney

Vianney has a gentle voice. Sometimes the music has a more solemn air to it, other times it has a beachy vibe going on. Here's one that has a beachy vibe.

5. Alma

Her music is great, but Spotify only has one of her songs ("Requiem") and Youtube only has a few others, so it's a little hard to find all her songs from the album. Here's a beautiful one that you can indeed easily find on Spotify!

6. Louane

This artist's music is often solemn but beautiful. She also did a duet with Charlie Puth at one point. Her music sounds heartfelt and full of life.

7. Emilie Mover

This Canadian songwriter combines the classic sounding elements from French music and makes them sound more modern. She also has had her music appear in movie and television show soundtracks.

You can find these artists, among other International artists, on this Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/rbith5lpxsfow5rlwrhe...

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
