Stromae - ta fête

Posted 2 years ago
Leuven Van Baelen
Racine Carrée

Four years after we introduced your to the Brussels-based dance-pop phenom by way of the Kanye-assisted Alors On Danse (Remix), Stromae is finally blowing up Stateside. Earlier this year, he sold out NYC’s Best Buy theater. Overseas, of course, his popularity remains sky-high, which is why his ta fête has been selected as Belgium’s official World Cup anthem. On this high-energy cut, the artist’s own adrenaline-pumping synth-percussion grooves accompany him as he urges listeners to forget all their worries and get into the celebratory spirit. Lieven Van Baelen directs the surprisingly violent visuals, which come complete with handy subtitles for non-Francophones. For more, cop Stromae’s Racine Carrée LP, out now on Island France.
