[EDM Origins] [House from France] Stromae – Te Quiero


Paul Van Haver, better known to the world as Stromae is a Belgian rapper, singer and producer who helped accelerate EDM’s rise to the main stage as well as advancing French music on the international market. Best known for his infectiously catchy house single “Alors on Danse” (“So We Dance”) which received special remix treatment from Kanye West got major airplay in the US.

Perhaps one of Stromae’s most powerful and moving songs is his 2010 single, “Te Quiero”. Mixing a powerful Spanish phrase with even more powerful lyrics in French, Te Quiero has less of a dance party feel then Alors On Danse but maintains much of Stromae’s signature house feel. Check out the song and music video above…

[Notable Lyrics:]

Je voudrais être son ombre [I want to be her shadow]
mais je le déteste… [but I detest her]
Te quiero [I love you]
Même au bout du monde [even at the end of the world]
et bien, qu’elle y reste [and well, let her stay there / there she’ll stay]
Te quiero [I love you]
Oui, je l’aimais tellement [yes, I love her a lot]
et je l’aime encore [and I still love her]
Je n’aurai pas le choix, non [I won’t have the choice, no]
Jusqu’à la mort [until I die…]
