Since she first burst onto the scene in 2014, Héloïse Letissier (aka Christine And The Queens) has been a bold force of bravado and artistry, using pop music as “a Trojan horse” to ask complex questions of gender and sexuality over pulsating synth-pop beats. With her second studio album, ‘CHRIS’, she has cemented her place as a veritable pop legend, using choreography and styling – along with her catchy songs, recorded in both English and French – to explore ideas of unabashed female desire in a live show that’s drenched in sweat and vulnerability. NME dotes on her live show as “one of this year’s most slick and masterful pop performances… damn near perfect”.
“It is unapologetic, pulsing with lust and the intoxicating pleasure of desire.” – i-D
“a subversive pop masterpiece – that somehow sounds effortless, too” – NME
“dreamy, transcendent… a perfect antidote to pop conservatism” – The Guardian
“an electric blend of unforgettable imagery, emotional depth, and lurid pop-funk” – Pitchfork
Critically acclaimed, Christine And The Queens was nominated for Best International Female Solo Artist at the 2017 UK BRIT Awards alongside Beyoncé, Solange, and SIA. She has also graced the cover of Time Magazine’s ‘Next Generation Leaders’ issue, where she was proclaimed as one of the most influential young creatives in the world.
Released in 2014, Christine’s debut album, ‘CHALEUR HUMAINE’, sold over 1.3 million copies and caught the attention of critics, tastemakers and music lovers around the world. Since then, she has appeared in instantly classic live TV performances on Later with Jools Holland, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and the Graham Norton Show, as well as being a highlight of the world’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, Coachella, and Pukkelpop.
Provocative and daring, Christine And The Queens’ unique approach to pop promises to astound audiences – whether they’ve been with her from the start or just discovering this singular superstar who has singlehandedly transformed ideas of what it means to be a pop artist.
