EDITORS’ NOTES

Christine and the Queens is the alter ego of Paris-based artist Héloïse Letissier—a constantly self-reinventing pop unicorn who's also fluent in modern dance and theater. Her 2014 breakthrough, Chaleur Humaine (rereleased in 2015 as her self-titled album), is a set of radiant electronic pop tunes in a style she's dubbed “freakpop.” Tracks like “iT” and “Tilted” instantly captivated curious listeners with their light atmosphere, cozy melodies, and optimistic lyrics. Yet despite the songs' fragile grace, Letissier is just as comfortable letting loose with bass-heavy collaborators like Dâm-Funk, Tunji Ige, and Twinsmatic (the 2018 jam “Doesn't matter” is one of her most danceable tracks yet). And like her heroes David Bowie and Laurie Anderson, she uses music to inspire others to be comfortable in their own skin.
