NEW ARTIST ALERT: Ben l’Oncle Soul
Let me preface this blog with this: I do not speak French — excluding “voux le vous couche avec moi” thanks to Moulin Rouge. However I’d like to add that good music is good music, notwithstanding the language.
Introducing an up-and-coming French artist I recently discovered online: Ben l’Oncle Soul.
The best way to describe him is a Motown-meets-Paris John Legend.. or should I say Jean L’egend? His self-titled album is currently the #1 digital album in all of France, so that speaks for itself.
Check out his French-sung single Soulman below
AND last but MOST IMPORTANTLY, his cover of the legendary White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army
