Madame Monsieur: Comme une reine

A new single from Madame Monsieur, the act who represented France in the Eurovision Song Contest earlier this year. Comme une reine comes from their Vu d'ici album which was released in April this year.

Emilie and Jean-Karl went to represent France after participating in the Destination Eurovision TV show where viewers chose them as the act they wanted in the competition. They took part in the televised final of the international event in May.

While Mercy might not have won Eurovision, it did win Madame Monsieur a whole lot of new friends around Europe and beyond. Their song was a good one, far better than the novelty acts that usually take to the stage in that competition, and it deftly tackled a difficult subject.

They were a fine indie pop act before Eurovision and they still are.

Like Mercy, the new single has a political dimension with a positive message about body image, but they don't let it get in the way of the song.

They're touring to promote their album, and played at La Cigale in Paris at the end of June. More dates are scheduled around France in coming months.
