Anybody know good French music?

I am mostly into jazz, a bit of pop, rock and my favorite hip hop. I found some good influential French rappers such as Oxmo Puccini, Iam and Nekfeu. I'm also interested in looking for good artists from other genres. Feel free to suggest :)

I love your list. Not sure it corresponds to 'jazz, pop and hip hop', though. ;)

No it does not, they are all clasical music composers, after all, France has very good music of all types.

Personnellement, J'adore "La Marseillaise" mais, si tu aimes rap je ne pense pas c'est pour vous.

If you like this song, you should like 'Parce qu'on vient de loin' by Corneille (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDr3qCcXKXk) and 'Les poèmes de Michelle' by the late Teri Moïse (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIRwq57UhZU). Good lyrics. Teri Moïse was 'a Haitian-American French singer' (Wikipedia).

    Cœur de Pirate is pretty great. She has a pretty voice, writes catchy poppy songs, sometimes sings in English and sometimes in French.
