France’s Alma a Hit with “Requiem”

The last couple of years have seen the French charts dominated by Anglo pop songs and Franco autotuned rap; good Franco pop songs are harder to come by. One artist who has saved 2017 is newcomer Alma from Lyon. She represented France in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Requiem” which became a Top 5 hit in her homeland. Apparently, she is tetralingual speaking French, English, Italian, and Portuguese. She has lived in Brazil, Italy, and Belgium. Alma’s debut album Ma peau aime was released on May 5, 2017.
