WE HEART CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS: christine and the queens - night 52 / jonathan (feat perfume genius) / paradis perdus / tilted

after slaying the charts back home in france for the past year with her debut album 'chaleur humaine', heloise letissier (aka christine and the queens) sets her sights for world domination with a re-edited version of her album filled with bi-lingual performances and new songs thrown in. part performance artist, part diva, part scruffy tom boy, the magic of this singer is the clear vision of her music, her visuals and her incredible live persona. after experiencing it last night, our love for christine and the queens is now in a fever pitch. check out some of our fave songs of hers at the moment:

christine and the queens - night 52
a reworking of her debut single 'nuit 17 a 52', i have to say that i'm surprised that this english version works better than the original (but that chorus! bliss!)

christine and the queens feat perfume genius - jonathan
a longtime fan of the canadian singer, heloise went straight to mike hadreas (aka perfume genius) to supply the male vocals to this heartbreaking track about hidden love. it's haunting and will stay with you long after the song is over. kind of brilliant.

christine and the queens - paradis perdus
i mean any woman that mashes up the classic 1973 song by christophe to kanye west's "heartless" is kind of worth your admiration don't you think?

christine and the queens - tilted
a pretty direct translation of her massive smash 'christine', this is the kind of self empowerment anthem that young people should be listening to. it gets better with this kind of music people!
