About Christine and the Queens
Recently named “Female Artist of the Year” at the French GRAMMY-equivalent Victoires de la Musique ceremony, Christine is already a household name in her native country. “Saint Claude” – which received “Music Video of the Year” honors at the Victoires de la Musique – has proven a massive worldwide hit, earning more than 13 million individual views thus far HERE. In addition, “Christine” HERE – the French-language version of “Tilted” HERE – has drawn nearly 14 million views and counting.

Christine and the Queens came together in London where the Nantes-born Letissier went after studying art and theatre. The artist – named in honor of Christine’s cross-dressing friends at Soho’s famed Madame Jojo’s drag bar – released a series of three EPs beginning in 2011, each one earning further attention and acclaim for her utterly individual brand of French-language freak-pop. Chaleur Humaine arrived in 2014 and immediately established Christine as a phenomenon, earning over 5x platinum certification in just over a year.
