All about French Rap

France at the BET Awards 2019

News | Business


This year again French artist are presents at the BET Awards. For two years now, BET has a category called ‘Best International Act”. After the 2018 edition during which we saw Booba, Niska and Dadju being nominated, we have four French ambassador this year. 

Thus, Aya Nakamura and Dosseh are nominated for the “Best International Act” and I’m not really surprised! Dosseh is a great artist and has strong connection in the US (the French rapper was invited for the official remix of “Bad and Boujee”). 2018 and 2019 were busy years for Dosseh with his “Vidalossa” album and its reissue. Aya Nakamura had a huge year also. Her eponymous album “Nakamura” released in November 2018 is double-platinum and knew an international success (her hit “Djadja” reached the top 50 in more than fifteen countries and there is a video of Rihanna dancing to it). 

Also, Jok’air and Nesly were nominated for the ‘Best New International Act”. Both of them amply deserve their place here, although “new” isn’t really suitable since they have been working for several years and are already established. But whatever, at the end, we are glad that these nominations offer these artists a substantial exposure.

Good luck to all of them!
