Genre: Pop, Dance
Marie-Mai has released a new single since 2014, entitled Empire. She will release an album in Fall 2018. She was busy with La Voix Junior (The Voice Kids) and took time off to take care of her baby Girl Gisele.
Empire is a metaphor for rediscovering oneself and gaining confidence to take back one’s life. It’s about the maturity and the wisdom that comes with life experiences allowing oneself to move forward. Overcoming obstacles isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible.
Her voice has a fantastic variety of tempos. She has a sound that is powerful, which compliments the song quite well. Her music is a mix of fast & slow, which is a new style to her music, including a dance beat reminding me of the early 2000s. While there’s strength in the song, there’s also softness.
Empire is the song that will be the start of the Summer season to come.
