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 :)

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).
Maitre Gims has a good voice.
Édith Piaf ,she is very famous in France. She was very popular in 50's and 60's.
Cœur de Pirate is pretty great. She has a pretty voice, writes catchy poppy songs, sometimes sings in English and sometimes in French.
