Music: Racine Carree by Stromae

Racine Carree CD coverRacine Carrée, the sophomore release by Belgian singer/songwriter Stromae, topped charts across Europe with its expert mix of dance club, hip hop, and multi-national influences. American audiences have been slow to embrace the superstar artist, but his songs inspire an infectious enthusiasm by any who’ve been treated to the energy and passion that typify his music. The standout track “Papaoutai” sizzles with both yearning and explosive celebration, and hundreds of millions of YouTube views of this video alone attest to how beautifully it translates to the visual. Whether the beats are throbbing, playful, or understated, the intense clarity of this talented voice makes it nearly impossible not to be moved.
