Christine And The Queens Drops “Doesn’t Matter,” Announces ‘Chris’ LP
French pop sensation Christine And The Queens (real name Héloïse Letissier) broke worldwide with her debut LP, Chaleur Humaine. The album, which was self-titled in English-speaking markets, sold more than a million copies and delivered the memorable hit, “Tilted.” She returned in May with “Girlfriend,” a sexy, tables-turning bop, and now follows it up with “Doesn’t Matter.” As the title suggests, the 30-year-old’s latest is a little bleaker. “It’s a crisis song that I wrote late one night,” the singer explains.
That certainly comes across in the lyrics, which convey an existential crisis of sorts as she questions the existence of God. “This song is a cathedral, with a rhythm as unalterable as white stone,” Christine continues. “The bass line, I remember playing it for hours, as if to rock myself.” As with “Girlfriend,” it’s pop, but not as we know it.
