Fast Facts You Need To Know


In April 2017, Orelsan announced that he and Gringe were working on their third and debut solo studio albums respectively, but did not reveal any release dates. On September 20, 2017, Orelsan released the first single from his third solo album, entitled “Basique”, along with its music video in which the album’s release date was revealed to be October 20, 2017. On September 22, 2017, Orelsan revealed the name of the album, La fête est finie, along with its cover art. On October 20, La fête est finie was released, to huge critical and commercial success: the album was certified gold by the SNEP within three days, and platinum within a week. La fête est finie was nominated for IMPALA’s European Album of the Year Award.


On 21 March 2015, Orelsan posted a photo of a script with the working title Orel et Gringe (Orel and Gringe) on his Instagram page. On May 4, he posted another photo, this time of himself with Gringe in the film, confirming that shooting for the film was complete and that its title would be Comment c’est loin.

On October 29, 2015, Orelsan and Gringe released “À l’heure où je me couche” as a single from the film’s original soundtrack, which was confirmed to be released on the same day as the film. Both were released on December 9 and, like Orelsan et Gringe sont les Casseurs Flowters, received generally positive reviews from critics. Two more songs from the album, “Inachevés” and “Si facile”, also charted in France despite not being released as singles. The album was certified platinum in France in January 2017.


In 2013, Orelsan’s recognition continued growing further, as he was nominated for the Victoires de la Musique award for Male Artist of the Year, while he was given the Prix de la Création Musicale award for Songwriter of the Year. He was also nominated for the NRJ Music Award for French Revelation of the Year, and at the 2013 Trace Urban Music Awards, he was nominated for the Male Artist of the Year and Best Live Performance awards, while “La terre est ronde” was nominated for Best Song and “Ils sont cools” featuring Gringe nominated for Best Music Video.

Following the success of Le chant des sirènes, Orelsan released his first collaborative single as Casseurs Flowters with Gringe, “Bloqué”, on 3 July 2013 as a pre-release for their upcoming debut studio album. Orelsan et Gringe sont les Casseurs Flowters was released on 15 November 2013 to generally positive reviews, and includes tracks such as “Regarde comme il fait beau (dehors)”, “La mort du disque”, “Dans la place pour être” and “Fais les backs”, which all charted in France despite not being released as singles. The album was then certified gold in France by the UPFI in 2014, having sold over 50,000 copies.

On 31 May 2013, Orelsan was given a suspended fine of €1,000 for insult and incitement of violence against women by the Correctional Tribunal of Paris. On 14 May 2014, the Court of Appeal of Paris closed the case by putting an end to lawsuits and an original complaint filed against Orelsan, finding that action taken against him by five feminist associations was prescribed.


On 3 March 2012, Orelsan won two awards in Victoires de la Musique, one in the category “Urban Album of the Year” for Le chant des sirènes, and for “Group or Artist Popular Revelation of the Year” chosen by the public.

The gay French magazine Têtu has publicly questioned some of Orelsan’s lyrics as being homophobic. In June 2012, at the Sakifo Festival in Réunion, the regional council of the island suppressed its subvention of €150,000 or one tenth of the budget of the festival. The arrival of Orelsan was questioned, but finally the organisers went on with it, but took to pay back 1 euro for every ticket sold for the date of the show to associations that protested. The song that caused the most controversy was “Saint-Valentin”.


On 30 May 2011, Orelsan released “RaelSan”, a pre-release and lead single for his upcoming second album. Its second single, “Double vie”, was made available through YouTube and Skyrock on 9 June. “Plus rien ne m’étonne” followed on 25 July, and finally “Suicide social” was released on 15 September.

The album Le chant des sirènes was released on 26 September 2011 with 16 tracks including popular tracks such as the title track “Le chant des sirènes”, “Mauvaise idée” and “Finir mal”. A fifth single, “La terre est ronde”, was released from the album on 24 December, and a sixth single, “Ils sont cools” featuring Gringe, was released on 22 June 2012. Receiving generally positive reviews from music critics, the album was certified gold only one month after release in France, with over 50,000 copies sold, and was certified platinum in 2012 with over 100,000 copies sold. The album peaked at number 3 on the French (SNEP) Albums Chart, at number 9 on the Belgian (Wallonia) Ultratop Albums Chart, and at number 32 on the Swiss (Hitparade) Albums Chart.


In 2010, Orelsan also collaborated with The Toxic Avenger on the extended play N’importe comment, releasing three music videos, a single and a maxi single containing remixes, all on the Roy Music label.

On 26 June 2010, Orelsan appeared on Skyrock’s Planète Rap, joining Jena Lee on the song “Je rêve en enfer” from her album Ma référence with Orelsan adding his punchlines in a version known as “Je rêve en enfer (Reste en enfer)”. Also in 2010, Orelsan collaborated with Nessbeal in “Ma grosse” and was part of the Diversidad project, joining a great number of rappers from various European countries. His work appeared in the collective album of Diversidad called Diversidad – The Experience Album.

In September 2010, during an interview with Canal Street, Orelsan announced that he was working on his new album that would come out in 2011.


On 16 February 2009, Orelsan released his debut album Perdu d’avance, a provocative album produced by Skread, that included 14 tracks. With “Changement” as its lead single, it included tracks such as the title track “Perdu d’avance”, “50 pour cent”, “Soirée ratée”, “Différent” and “No-life”, with music video releases for all. “Entre bien et mal” featured his Casseurs Flowters colleague Gringe and “La peur de l’échec” featured Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal. At the end of 2009, Orelsan was nominated for the Prix Constantin award, and won the MTV Europe Music Award for Best French Act, pipping highly favoured David Guetta to the prize.

In 2009, controversy erupted involving some of Orelsan’s work that included violent and misogynist lyrics, particularly in “Saint-Valentin” and “Sale pute” (the latter is French for “Dirty whore”). Neither song appeared on his debut album Perdu d’avance, but were made available online. Many blog campaigns followed, demanding that he be banned from appearing at a scheduled gig at the Printemps de Bourges festival. The campaign took a political turn with both the French Communist Party (PCF) and the French Socialist Party (PS) supporting the campaign. The Socialist Party claimed in a communiqué that the song included “a scandalous, odious text that incited violence directly”. It also supported the campaign to remove Orelsan from Printemps de Bourges. French Secretary of State for Solidarity Valérie Létard considered “Sale pute” sexist and violent and demanded that websites remove the video from their sites. She also offered help to groupings that wanted to file a lawsuit based on Article 24 of the law on freedom of the press, that forbids incitement to commit crimes.

The Printemps de Bourges organisers insisted on keeping Orelsan on the show scheduled for 25 April 2009, saying in a communique: “As outrageous as are the lyrics of this song, we have hired Orelsan as a young artist for an artistic performance noting that his album does not include this [particular] song. For this reason, we do not remove [the date for] Orelsan’s performance as we are fulfilling our artistic choices. This French language hip hop album presents good texts that seem a perfect reflection of a 20-year-old French generation, a bit lost and disillusioned.” Despite explanations, François Bonneau, the President of the Regional Council of the Centre, threatened financial reprisals against the festival if it didn’t reconsider its decision. It also deducted a proportional part of its subvention to the festival. Orelsan did eventually appear in the festival despite the campaign.

Frédéric Lefebvre, the spokesman for Union pour un Mouvement Populaire (UMP) said that the matter was blown out of proportion declaring that he supported the young artist’s freedom of expression and denounced attempts of censorship by Ségolène Royal against him. Royal denied any “chantage” or threats, expressing her satisfaction that the organizers had decided to cancel Orelsan’s gig. On 14 July 2009, French Minister of Culture Frédéric Mitterrand made a declaration of support for the rapper for freedom of expression, judging the whole controversy ridiculous. Many artists also came to Orelsan’s support. Many French radio stations have censored at times Orelsan’s songs due to protests from feminists and others, and the media have dubbed him the “Eminem of French rap”.


In 2008, the record label 3 Bureau noticed his work and offered him an opportunity to produce an album in collaboration with 7th Magnitude, a record label founded by Skread and his colleague Ablaye. In the summer of 2008, he promoted the release of “Changement”, his first single released on 13 October 2008, and its music video through the TF1 Video and Nolife TV channels. The video was Orelsan’s first professionally prepared clip.


In August 2006, Orelsan released his first clip on YouTube, called “Ramen”, followed by a second one in 2007, called “Saint-Valentin”, a sarcastic parody on Valentine’s Day that attracted great following prompting him to release more of his work online through YouTube and Myspace.


In 2004, Orelsan formed the hip hop duo Casseurs Flowters with his colleague Gringe. With help from French record producer Skread, they released their first mixtape Fantasy: Episode 1 in 2004 with 11 tracks. Afterwards, the two decided to focus on building their solo careers.


Orelsan spent one year at the University of Tampa in Florida, where he had the inspiration of writing the song “50 pour cent”. In 2002, he issued a mixtape and was invited to contribute in various compilations. Returning to France and working the night shifts in a hotel gave him the opportunity to write more.
