Héloïse Letissier, otherwise known as Christine and the Queens, is a French singer and songwriter from Nantes. She was inspired by drag queen musicians such as Russella, who took her in while she was in London after a devastating break up. She has described her genre as “freakpop”, with her music and lyrics questioning feminism, gender and queer culture.
Christine and the Queens has slowly built up a following, and began to chart after the release of her third EP. She even has A-List fans such as Madonna, Mark Ronson and Lorde. She’s been awarded Best Female Artist in 2015, and was nominated for the IMPALA Album of the Year Award 2015 for her album “Chaleur Humaine”.
Dazed says that her newest album “Chaleur Humaine” “combines fractured, glitch-ridden electro-pop production with Letissier’s distinctively fluid, ice-clear voice.” We can't stop listening to her fantastic album, and her music videos are just as amazing with their fluid and contemporary choreography. Take a look at her video for her single "Christine"!
