About the artist
Slimane Nebchi is 34 years old and is of algerian origin. He won The Voice of France in 2016 and ever since his career has exploded. His four studio albums have all reached the first place in the french charts and he has also charted in other countries’ charts. He was a coach in the Voice of Belgium. He has also participated in musicals and some films as an actor, while he is also a philanthropist.
The artist is probably the biggest name to represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest for many years. As the head of french delegation, Alexandra Redde-Amiel said, France is heading for the trophy.
With 2 million albums sold. 1 million spectators in his concerts, 2 billion streams across the world, 5 NRJ Music Awards and a Victory of Music, Slimane has announced to his 7 million fans in social media that he will proudly represent France in Eurovision 2024.
Slimane composes his own music, but he has also written music for famous french artists, like M Pokora, Vitaa, Kendji etc.
He performs out of norms in order to weave emotional links with his audience.
Alexandra Redde-Amiel explains why the song is revealed so early
For us, supporting such an artist in the competition implies thinking about everything we can do with him. This is why we make it official early. We want to prepare Slimane, take him to meet Europe. The artist considers translating his song into English and other languages because it is important for him that the song is understood.
Revealing the song in November also gives it the best chance of winning the French public and, ideally, becoming a success on national territory in the hope of becoming also an international hit. It is important that the country supports Slimane as it has always done and even more so today. The artist should thus participate in numerous public service entertainment programs.
