    Le G is probably mine but I think the bet song on the album is Doesn’t Matter. The Walker, Damn, Feel So Good, and Comme Si are all great tracks too! I love it all!
  2. My fave little androgynous French pop singer is hitting the States with a small tour and releasing her music here FINALLY! I get to see her twice on the 21rst and 24th!!! https://youtu.be/QCie0l31YxQ https://youtu.be/FONX8V7qZlw https://youtu.be/ZzFYmz2lfT4 I'm so excited! It's awesome that Madonna likes her! She's really amazing!

    Listen again and again and you’ll see this album is miles better...there’s a growth and an understanding that’s just so impressive. Trust I loved the first album. I didn’t think this would be better at all.

    Yeah it seemed pretty short or non-eventful for my taste. I’ve already seen them 4 times! But glad they had a successful show! Lykke Li was amazing!

    Communion is much better. I saw it was a rather short setlist in other cities which is why I changed my mind last second. Did he have a stage production?

    I changed my mind. Going to see Lykke Li there tomorrow and it’s too much to go to both days.

    It’s just incredible! I seriously can’t say it enough. I love the way Goya Soda ends with that haunting 🎹 slow down...I LOVE Damn (What Must a Woman Do)...it’s so Michael Jackson...Feel So Good is my personal fave! I LOVE what’s her face and Le G is probably the best song on there record and I wish there was either an English version or a translation so I could know what the hell shes singing. What I need is proper lyrics cause they are all wrong on Apple Music and on genius.com

    Agreed! I love playing both versions and having the two extra French songs which are amazing! Le G is brilliant!

    I would die!!!!!! She wants that big stage setup. She’s being very ambitious with her staging for this tour!!! Madonna already knows her! It’d be the best idea for both of them! I love when she had Robyn but it was only for European dates which bummed me out!

    I honestly don’t think Christine would want to work with M. I feel like she’s charging through in her own work and it would get in the way of that.

    I'm living for the production throughout. I wonder how long her set will be on tour cause I think now she's got plenty to work on if she's going to incorporate songs from her first record and mostly new songs.

    Christine & The Queens

    I’m thrilled that people are loving it as much! Funnily enough, the hardest thing to get through when you first listen to her is her seemingly horrific nonsensical French to english “poetic” translations. However, the more I’ve listened to her first ep, debut record, read through translations of her French versions to see the compatible lyrics, now with this new record...I finally get her little meanings behind lyrics like “I am out for a walk and I won’t be back till their staining my skin...” Just as a small example. Her lyrical translations clearly stem from literary poetics but also from her perspective in French and trying to convey in English and how those things (the words we use and how we use them from language to language) can clash and not make sense. With this album, I think she’s pushing that even further from the first record and being even bolder. She’s settled into a new “skin” and she’s tempting the listener, provoking us even, whereas her first record she was making a pure statement on her understanding of herself and her position in life as a queer person. Now, she’s actively searching for sensuality and invoking her inner sexual urges without shame (according to her, because she got some fame and attention, dated and found herself getting more comfortable in her skin) So, basically what I'm saying it's been a journey, a little exploration into her kookiness and her introspective slow-burn styled videos, her funky dance performance styles and her beautiful smooth melodies/vocals/productions and now that I feel more in tune with her and her message, it's so gratifying. What my friends would say after they randomly caught her at Governers Ball (specifically cause she was on early and told them they HAD to see her) was how funny she was and how sad and serious she seemed in most of her videos. I think that was a little peak into her goofy personality and breaking that strange wall of this french girl who we don't understand... my most memorable moment seeing her live was when she mentioned ru paul was her biggest inspiration and made everyone chant "if you cant love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else can i get an amen?" and everyone did it.

    It’s amazing! Damn (what must a woman do!) is very reminiscent of Madonna, what’s her face reminds me of in this life...most of it has a very early 90’s Prince/Michael...even Sheila E type beats and production style. Its a great album!!! Can’t wait to listen on repeat for the next year!!!!

    Being at the Q&A and hearing them explain their vision made it much more enjoyable. The no-narrative was purposely done. I love the film!
