Le Pop En Duo
While working on Le Pop 2 and 3 we repeatedly realised how many fantastic duets the new chanson has produced and how many hits are among them. For example, "Le 22 bar" by Dominique A and his then partner Françoiz Breut was his career breakthrough. Jérôme Minière's duet with actress Karin Vanasse was always a surefire dancefloor hit for our DJ team. Albin de la Simone invited the then still completely unknown Canadian artist Feist into his studio and had her sing in French following onomatopoeic instructions. We were especially pleased about cross-generational duets of such celebrities as Jane Birkin (with Mickey 3D) and Jacques Higelin (as duet partner of Jeanne Cherhal). At that time exclusively on "Le Pop En Duo" : the French version of Something Stupid - "Ces mots stupides" by the dream couple Jeanne Cherhal and Albin de la Simone. Also exclusive : the duet of Toma and his wife Agnes aka Api "L'amour à la plage" (original by Niagara).
