Victoires de la musique 2023: the Toulousains of Bigflo & Oli nominated twice

the essential
The nominations for the 38th Victoires de la Musique are known. The Belgian Stromae comes first. The ceremony will take place on February 10.

The Belgian Stromae, cited in four categories, dominates the nominations for the 38th Victoires de la Musique, unveiled Monday for the ceremony on February 10 at the Seine Musicale near Paris. The artist, back after a break imposed by a burn-out, is in the running for the trophies of male artist, of the album (“Multitude”), of the song (“L’enfer”) and of the audiovisual creation for the clip “Fils de joie”.

He is ahead of Frenchman OrelSan, with three nominations, and another Belgian, Angèle, with three nominations as well. We will hear about Belgium on February 10, since Pierre de Maere, another artist from this country, comes forward with two nominations, while Mentissa, also Belgian, is mentioned once.

In 2022, the Victoires de la Musique had been crushed by OrelSan and Clara Luciani. The rapper had scored a hat-trick in the male artist, song (“The smell of gasoline”) and audiovisual creation categories for his documentary “Never show that to anyone”. The singer had achieved a double with the trophy of female artist and the price of the album (“Heart”).
