#16: Christine & The Queens – Tilted

 

One of the year’s most irresistible new stars was Heloise Letissier from Nantes, France, who goes by the name Christine & The Queens. For a number of years, she has been chipping away at the fringes of electro and pop music without catching a break, as evidenced by the storied history of this particular song. In its original form it went by the name ‘Cripple’, and it caused some inadvertent offence when performed live. She went back to the drawing board, restyled the song as ‘Christine’, and duly scored a significant hit across mainland Europe. It wasn’t until this year however, and the third rebrand, that she eventually gained traction in the mainstream, but once she got rolling she would not be stopped, in no small part to her extraordinary on stage presence.
