These unexpected french musicials you heard in tv shows
The soundtrack of a TV show is as important as the images. In fact, music can really give out the tone of the series and embellish what we see on the screen! We can even bet that some music stopped you during your binge-watching sessions, especially when you heard a French artist. Here are 6.
Woodkid in Arcane
Arcane came as a real bombshell on Netflix. Little animated gem partly directed by the French studio Fortiche, Arcane brings the fans into the universe of the video game League of Legends (LoL). If the main theme is signed by Imagine Dragons, a lot of Wookid fans recognize his sound amongst the supercharged soundtrack of the show. And quite rightly, it’s the song “Guns for Hire” that the singer’s fans heard, not without joy.
Aya Nakamura in Elite
Queen of the radio, Aya Nakamura has a prominent place in the Spanish Netflix show, Elite. In season 2, fans of the teen show heard the notes from “Djadja” during one of the many party scenes organized by the Las Encinas students. The song is a massive success and cross French borders to make people from - almost - all over the world dance.
Redcar (Christine and the Queens) in Girls
This is in the fourth episode of season 5 of Girls that French fans recognized the voice of Christine and the Queens, now called Redcar, in Lena Dunham show for the song “iT”. A nice shout out that the artist celebrated in 2016 by doing a little dance on social media. We actually do understand that when HBO uses one of your songs, it’s time to celebrate!
Laylow in Mortel
They shouldn’t have asked the fans! Unless… While season 2 of Mortel was still in production, Netflix asked fans on Twitter which artist they would like to hear in the show. Since season 1 was punctuated by a selection that made French rap fans happy. Obviously, Laylow’s name, a French artist on the rise, came out several times. An opportunity for the Toulousian to offer to his song “Mégatron”, title from the Trinity album, Netflix as a platform!
Faf Larage for the French opening credits of Prison Break
Before Aya Nakamura and other French new music prodigies, it is in the show Prison Break that rap fans ran out of breath while singing “J’ai pas le temps” from Faf Larage during the opening credits. An historical moment that made this song a classic.
Therapie Taxi in Emily in Paris
Recently broken up, the group Therapie Taxi had the opportunity to be heard on none other than Darren Star show, Emily in Paris. With a musical style between rock and hip-hop, Therapie Taxi song “Hit Sale”, featuring Belgian rapper Roméo Elvis, was chosen to accompany the adventures of this American girl into the French capital. We’re not gonna lie, with Paris as a decor, Emily in Paris gives several French artists a platform to perform. In fact, we also heard Owle, Flavien Berger and even the group Le Femme in the show’s soundtrack.
