Here it is:
Enjoy and weep, my friends.
This is a really fantastic album. I love how she's feeling her big pop girl fantasy in the first half, bop after bop after bop. The second half is mostly more subdued and more similar to the debut, but it's also great. Bruxelles je t'aime remains one of the very best songs of the year, and Libre better get released as a single.
The album is literally a 10 help.
Libre is everything.
Brol is double diamond in France, but Nonante-cinq entered the chart at number 4. I wonder if that's just because of the physical copies' delay.
The whole rollout was also weirdly low-key. Just one single pre-album?
I imagine randomly putting the album on streaming services one week before it was meant to be released (and before physicals were ready too) resulted in it pealing lower than it would have if all first week streams + sales were counted on the same week, but oh well.
I'm pretty sure that the low peak is because of disconnection of physicals and streaming being released in two different weeks.
Also of course they wasted her 'big comeback after huge era' momentum by releasing the Brol La Suite release. I have this theory that by releasing repacks you kinda eat into the next era's popularity and buzz but who knows. Of course the releases do well but by the time the follow up comes some people have moved on.
Example Kesha and Animal / Cannibal / Warrior.
Like, a teen girl into pop who was 15-16 when Brol was released is 20 now and probably listens to other types of music.
I'm sure she'll be fine though.
Démons is a single with a video and has impacted a week ago.
The album is fabulous. I've been devouring Brol pre-release and now I'm binging on both.
Wasn't it out on the day of the album? Pre-release singles are necessary to build hype.
Solo is the one for me.
Decided to finally check her out thanks to Fever and this album is absolutely gorgeous holy shit.
This album has taken over my life. The melodies upon melodies upon melodies. The melancholy in her voice. The slyer songs actually being bigger bops than the made-for-cigs upbeat ones. I love Angèle.
I'm obsessed with On S'habitue. It's gorgeous.
I just checked and it my 5th most played of 2021 (after Planet Her, star-crossed, Happier Than Ever and Still Over It - taste!) despite being out for two weeks.
I loved this performance.
In her piano goddess era.
I’m watching the doc its cute
I love this one much more than the first album.
