Eddy De Pretto blew a breath of life into the new French scene when he won the Prix du Printemps de Bourges in 2017. Origi-nally from Créteil, he draws his influence from Franck Ocean, Kanye West and even Claude Nougaro. He experiences an un-charted genre where he borrows themes and sounds from rap music and competes with the great names of French chanson. His harsh lyrics deal without filter with themes such as night life, parties and drugs. Eddy De Pretto belongs both to French chanson and to rap music which is no longer afraid to deal with emotions and sensitivity. His first album Cure, released in 2018, put him under the spotlight of French chanson.
