Most of my readers are from the United States. So, you've likely never heard of French/Malian singer Aya Nakamura. In Europe, though - she's huge, without a doubt. Nakamura isn't her real last name (she lifted that from a character on the TV show Heroes, which I can't recommend enough unless you want to watch it past the first season.....). Her fame grew out of, shockingly, her YouTube channel.
This is the lead single off her latest album, DNK, released on January 27th. Written by Nakamura herself, it is a pretty standard R&B song both musically and thematically. It just happens to be in French. So, I encourage you to give it a listen, and I hope you like it as much as the last French-language artist I pushed down your throats.
