Eddy De Pretto, a rising figure in the French scene, and the rapper Orelsan, triple winner last year, competing in three categories, lead the nominations for the 34th edition of the Victoires de la musique, depending on the selection unveiled on Wednesday. After the coronation of Orelsan, rewarded by 2018 in the categories male artist, album of urban music and audiovisual creation, Eddy De Pretto can achieve such a feat at 25 years and hardly a year and a half after it had erupted in the musical landscape hex.

With her first album Cure , released in 2018, Eddy De Pretto has exceeded 100,000 sales and is competing in the categories of male artist in the face of Étienne Daho and the duo Bigflo & Oli, and urban music album, always in the face of Bigflo & Oli and the singer of urban pop Aya Nakamura. De Pretto, which was first revealed by his performance on stage, can achieve the hat trick if he won the category “concerts”, where he will be opposed to the rock band Shaka Ponk and Orelsan.
Orelsan could add three more trophies to his name, he who already has five. He is again nominated in the category “audiovisual creation” for the clip of Dreams , in the face of the young pop singers Jain ( Alright ) and Angèle ( Money ).
The rapper normand contributes with Dreams to the original song designated by the public, whose vote has just opened and will run until 7 February 20h, on the site lesvictoires.com, france.tv and radiofrance.fr. I tell you of the group, Boulevard des Airs, Midi on November of Louane (with Julien Doré) and Djadja Aya Nakamura are also in the running.
In women, the duel will be tight. Even if Christine & the Queens, already sacred female artist in 2015, appears to be the favorite with his second album Chris that collected the votes of the critics, Jeanne Added could create a nice feeling after you take out one of the most beautiful albums of the fall ( Radiate ). Not forgetting Vanessa Paradis, already a winner three times in this category-queen.
