Belgian musician, rapper, singer and songwriter, Paul Van Haver, better known by his stage name Stromae, has released his new song “Santé.”
Born 12 March 1985, Stromae is mostly known for his works in the genre of the hip hop and electronic music.
Stromae came to wide public attention in 2009 with his song “Alors on danse” (from the album Cheese), which became a number one in several European countries.
On 6 April 2018, Stromae released his first new single in more than three years, “Défiler”, to accompany the release of “Capsule 5” a new fashion line. The song was co-composed with his brother, Luc Junior Tam.
The song’s lyrics play on the meanings in the French language of the words “défiler” (“to parade/pass by,” often used to refer to models walking down a runway), “fil” (thread, line) and “filer” (to whiz by), evoking themes of modeling and superficiality; of life speeding by; and of toeing the line or hanging by a thread.
In 2019, he co-produced and provided vocals, in French, for the song “Arabesque” of the band Coldplay, for their album Everyday Life.
On November 10, 2020, during his first Live Instagram on the occasion of Mosaert’s 10th anniversary, he mentioned working on new music.
