An Electropop Album That Explores Some Of The Genuine Issues Existing In Society

The thirty-four-year-old Belgian musician Paul Van Haver, professionally known as Stromae, released his second studio album “Racine carrée” in August 2013. This French language electropop album explores a wide range of themes that include relationship issues, racism, sexism, isolation from social network, AIDS, cigarettes and lung cancer. In this album that was reportedly recorded in an attic, Stromae tried to incorporate some African and Caribbean music elements on top of his usual 1990s inspired dance beats. The album has a total of thirteen tracks with an approximate overall time length of forty-three minutes. The album mostly received positive reviews from the music critics, especially for the thoughtful lyrics. Allmusic rated the album 4 out of 5 stars and praised his songwriting skills saying “Racine Carrée will be remembered as Stromae's breakthrough album and a major validation of his considerable songwriting talents.” The same article further added, “The Belgian-Rwandan young prodigy is at heart much closer to a singer/songwriter than to an EDM producer and DJ, which turns Racine Carrée into a very unusual kind of dancefloor filler. After all, how many albums designed for clubs feature songs that deal with subjects such as absent fathers, cigarettes and cancer, AIDS, racism, sexism, or social isolation created by the Internet?” It is very unusual to see some serious topics in a regular electropop album, but Stromae could incorporate these into his music successfully. Music Story, NU.nl and Metro newspapers all rated the album 4 out of 5 stars. The album received commercial success all across Europe, Canada and the United States. It peaked at number one on many music charts, including the US World Albums (Billboard), Dutch Albums (Album Top 100) and Italian Albums (FIMI) charts. It also reached the tenth position on Canadian Albums (Billboard) album. The use of serious themes in disco-oriented electropop music mixed with African and Caribbean rhythms makes this album very unique, something that was not experienced by the listeners before.
