Slimane | The French contestant for Eurovision 2024 reveals his exclusive playlist for What the France

The sixty-eighth edition of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 is set to take place at the Malmö Arena in Malmö, Sweden. The event will kick off with two semi-finals on May 7 and 9, culminating in the final showdown on May 11. Representing France at this prestigious event will be the talented artist Slimane, performing his song “Mon amour”.

Slimane Nebchi, also known as Slimane, hails from Chelles, Seine-et-Marne, and is a multifaceted French singer-songwriter and actor born on October 13, 1989. His claim to fame came in 2016 when he clinched the winning title in the fifth season of “The Voice” competition. That same year, he debuted with his album “À bout de rêves”, which soared to the top of the charts in France, Belgium, and French-speaking Switzerland, achieving double platinum status. In 2018, his sophomore album “Solune” also secured the number one spot on the French album charts.

Building on the success of his collaboration track “Je te le donne” with Vitaa, Slimane embarked on a joint album project titled “VersuS” in 2019, which swiftly attained diamond certification. The dynamic duo earned further accolades the next year, winning a Victoire de la Musique award for “Best Original Song” with “Ça va ça vient”. Their musical journey continued with the releases of “VersuS: Chapitre II” (2020) and “VersuS: L’ultime chapitre” (2021). Slimane’s solo career resumed a year later with the album “Chroniques d’un cupidon”, featuring collaborations with artists like La Zarra, Manal, Soprano, Lyna Mahyem, and Claudio Capéo.

France Télévisions announced on November 8, 2023, that Slimane had been chosen to represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with his self-composed song “Mon amour”, co-written with Meïr Salah and Yaacov Salah.

In anticipation of the Eurovision final, Slimane has curated an exclusive playlist for What the France, showcasing a mix of his own tracks alongside some of his favorite “made in France” tunes. Expect to hear melodies from the likes of Jacques Brel, Sola, Anabel, Vitaa, Charles, Francis Cabrel, Gilbert Montagné, Christophe Willem, Lara Fabian, Philippine Lavrey, Claudio Capéo, Dadju & Tayc, and Amel Bent.
