Stromae Brings Belgian House Music to the Charts

Nee Paul van Haver in 1985, this 25 year old hip-hop act chose the artist name Stromae when recording irresistible dance music. His debut hit “Alors on danse” was released in native Belgium last September and available in the rest of Europe this February. So far, the track has reached the No.1 position in Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark and Holland. In addition, Stromae has spent three runs atop of the pan-European singles charts! He recently knocked Lady Gaga and Beyoncé off the top.

Stromae attended the l’Académie Musicale de Jette where he took drum and music history lessons. He was signed by Mercury/Universal Music France’s label Vertigo, following extensive airplay on NRJ Brussels.
