I am really starting to get into French pop music. And the football is quite diverting, I suppose. Tonight’s final match is France vs Albania. France is represented by epic pop diva Shy’m who has a song called Tandem which I don’t think is about cycling. From Albania we have some quite mellow hip-hop from MC Kresha. The song is called Hip Hop and as far as I can tell, it’s the story of how much hip hop meant to the rappers as kids in a communist country.
Tandem – Shy’m [Fashion forward pop with a massive chorus]
Hip Hop – MC Kresha & Lyrical Son feat Ledri Vula [Rather old school Albanian rhymes over some rather old school Albanian samples]
