The rappers Orelsan and Eddy from Pretto each won three nominations for the 34th Victoires de la Musique, which are held this Friday live from the Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourt in the Hauts-de-Seine, with our special show on France Bleu from 7:15 p.m.
Duel Eddy from Pretto vs Orelsan
After the coronation of Orelsan, awarded in 2018 in the categories “male artist”, “album of urban music” and “audiovisual creation”, Eddy de Pretto can achieve such feat at 25, barely a year and a half after having emerged in the hexagonal musical landscape.
The one who oscillates between song and rap and whose first album “Cure”, released in 2018, has exceeded 100,000 sales, competes in the categories “male artist” against Etienne Dahoand the duo Bigflo & Oli, and “album of music “Still facing Bigflo & Oli and the urban pop singer Aya Nakamura .
De Pretto, who was first revealed by his stage performances, can achieve the treble if he wins the category “concerts”, where he will be opposed to the rock group Shaka Ponk and … Orelsan .
Orelsan who can add three trophies to his list, he already has five. He is again in the category of “audiovisual creation” for the video clip “Weird Dreams”. And he competes with “Weird Dreams”for the original song designated by the audience.
In front of him, the young pop singers Jain ( “Alright” ) and Angèle ( “To forget everything”).
In the singers too, the duel will be tight. Even if Christine & the Queens , already sacred “female artist” in 2015, appears as the favorite with her 2nd opus “Chris” who won the votes of critics, Jeanne Added could create a great feeling after releasing one of the most beautiful albums of autumn (“Radiate”). Not to mention Vanessa Paradis , already a three-time winner in this category-queen.
Christine and the Queens can do double hit with the category “album of songs”, but there too she will have to face the posthumous album of Alain Bashung (“Upstream”) which will be celebrated on March 14th the 10th anniversary of the disappearance and facing the ghost Alain Chamfort , author of the superb “The disorder of things”.
