With his slender frame and feminine air, bright bow tie, Boy Scout Bermuda shorts, and long socks, Stromae has a preppy style with a 2014 twist. He moves slickly to the sound of heady, must-dance beats. No poetic lyrics but poignant and cutting speech, infused with sardonic bite. With just two albums, this well-spoken enfant terrible, who everyone is talking about, has conquered all of France – my daughter, her friends, cousins, and me included. Everyone loves his unusual look, his songs, his whole world! He really is the next big thing. Stromae’s second album “Racine Carrée” will soon be released in the U.S. and UK, so you can listen for yourself!
