A new song and clip marking the return of Israeli-born French singer Tal, who has in the last couple of years become one of France's most promising stars.
An American-styled video for a song that's as breezy slice of French R 'n' B pop as you could hope for.
Tal's debut album, 2011's Le Droit de Rever, reached number two in France, and featured the hit singles Le sens de la vie and Je prends le large.
A duet with M Pokora on the song Envole-moi which featured on the album Génération Goldman gave her another hit single last year. This was followed by the release of a special edition of her debut album, and work beginning on her follow up.
2013 saw her win an NRJ Music Award for Francopho
ne breakthrough artists of the year.
If it's any measure of her success, a post on this blog about Tal was the most read post on the blog so far, by quite a measure.
The new track features a contribution by US rapper Flo Rida, a performer who has become a huge star since the release of his 2008 debut album. He's previosuly collaborated with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Sia, Nelly Furtado and Akon. His 2010 track Club Can't Handle Me,a number one in the UK, featured David Guetta.
The track will feature on Tal's second album, the release date for which has not yet been confirmed.
