French-Canadian singer Marie-Mai has released a new album entitled ‘Elle et Moi” (Her & I). This record feels like the most personal album for Marie-Mai. You can feel the raw emotions, which makes this album authentic.
The music is a mix of different genres: pop, electric and techno. The composition of the songs is impressive. Marie-Mai composed most of the songs along with Oliver Som and others. It’s a dynamic album with a complex, but structured composition. The tempo of the songs is a mix of slow and fast.
Marie-Mai’s voice is stronger than ever. One can hear the confidence in her voice when she sings, as well as raw emotion and strength. She performs in sync with the music.
The lyrics have a personal touch to them, which makes them authentic and relatable. Songs like Empire, Je Decolle (I take off), and Elle et Moi (Her & I) are examples of empowerment and self-confidence that are inspirational. Oser Aimer (Dare to Love) is a song that gives hope about finding love.
An example of a personal song is La Fin (The End), which refers to her separation from Fred St-Gelais (according to sources-including an interview on Radio-Canada). Exister is a song that Marie-Mai wrote most of the songs on her own. In some cases, she co-wrote songs with other artists, which is the case for the songs Elle et Moi and Un Pied Dans La Porte (A foot out the door). Koriass and Ingrid St-Pierre wrote Elle et Moi and Un Pied Dans La Porte, respectively.
The album Elle et Moi is now available. Enjoy!
