Recently named Female Artist of the Year at the French Grammy-equivalent Victoires de la Musique ceremony, Christine is already a household name in her native country. “Saint Claude” – which received “Music Video of the Year” honors at the Victoires de la Musique – has proven a massive worldwide hit, earning more than 13 million individual views. In addition, “Christine” has drawn nearly 14 million views and counting.
Christine and the Queens came together in London where the Nantes-born Letissier went after studying art and theatre. The artist – named in honor of Christine’s cross-dressing friends at Soho’s famed Madame Jojo’s drag bar – released a series of three EPs beginning in 2011, each one earning further attention and acclaim for her utterly individual brand of French-language freak-pop. Chaleur Humaine arrived in 2014 and immediately established Christine as a phenomenon, earning over 5x platinum certification in just over a year.
