Biolay : mise à nu

Three years after his elegant getaway argentina Palermo Hollywood (2016) – crowned by a Victory of the music – and the disappointing Volver (2017), the crooner French returns with a ninth album, Grand Prix, in reference to the fatal accident of Jules Bianchi at the Grand Prix of Suzuka in 2014, which has, like many, really shocked. Fascinated by the life of the pilot, Benjamin Biolay, is engaged in soul-searching honesty brutal. The result is subtle, far from the fighting, bashs and statements to the hard which it is engaged on the social networks.
