WATCH | Montreal's Donzelle Makes A Comeback With Dazzling New Visuals For "Génie"
Donzelle is a beautiful mix of questionable metaphor rap, deadpan dancers, unrefined costume changes and heavy dirty bass.
You might remember her name from back around the neon/electro-rap days, you might just not, and that's okay. She's back with a brand new single and visuals to accompany her single "Génie" (watch above) -
Reminiscing on a post-breakup summer, the song was made to help you recollect yourself and put you on the right path to find yourself once again.
“Un été de faux pas calculés, de faux pas complètement assumés, à reconstruire mon ego blesse”
...whispers Donzelle, over beats by Cerne (Bronswick) and arrangements by Pierre Crube.
The video was filmed in Nicolas Fleming’s installation on display at the Maison des arts de Laval as part of the exhibition “Et ce n’était qu’un commencement,” at the invitation of the artist himself. The polished directing of Nelly-Ève Rajotte is meticulous, creating a universe made for Donzelle and her music. This devoted ambassador for kitsch heritage brings a singular, non-traditional voice to the predominantly male Quebec rap scene, through a disruptive and fascinating project that serves up party beats, advocacy and empowerment.
