Pokora's most recent album R.E.D. has been a massive seller in France, with four hit singles of its own along with a successful tour.
For a singer who first came to public attention through a TV talent show - in this case Popstars in 2003 - he's shown professional longevity that few veterans of similar shows in teh UK have been able to match.
Elle me contrôle featured on his eponymous debut solo album from 2004, released following the break-up of Linkup, the boy band formed for the TV show. It came out as a single the following year and reached the top ten in France.
It went on to win the NRJ Music Award for Francophone Song of the Year in 2006.
