arts24 – Music show: Jäde puts hip-hop spin on chanson française
In this edition of our arts24 music show, Jennifer Ben Brahim chats with French rising star Jäde ahead of her debut album release. She has a voice like sugar but with a heavy dose of lyrical spice, with musical influences ranging from Lauryn Hill to Françoise Hardy. Her upcoming record “Les Malheurs de Jäde” is a reference to the French children’s book “Les Malheurs de Sophie”. She tells us more about her musical style.
We also talk about the return of triple threat Jennifer Lopez, who is about to drop her first album in 10 years, “This Is Me…Now”. It references her rekindling her romance with actor Ben Affleck, and is accompanied by a musical film.
Plus, we look at the surprise announcement of Beyoncé’s second instalment of the “Renaissance” album trilogy. This time, she is serving up country music.
Finally, we chat to Montreal duo Chromeo ahead of the release of their mature record “Adult Contemporary”.
