Franky Fade presents the captivating new single Bon ami ahead of the release of his debut solo album CONTRADICTIONS

Today, Franky Fade unveils Bon ami, a sensual and catchy track that recalls the intensity of a first love and the passion that accompanies it. Produced with the help of Sambé and the duo Pops & Poolboy, the song draws its stylistic elements from American pop and electronic music, and is inspired by Latin and African rhythms. This collaboration propelled Franky to experiment and expand his musical repertoire, leading him to create sounds he had never explored before. Bon ami comes out on the eve of the release of CONTRADICTIONS, the Gaspé-born rapper and singer-songwriter’s first solo album, which will be available everywhere this Friday, October 8th.

With this new single, Fade lives up to his reputation by demonstrating his versatility and ability to play with words, all the while finely executing the hard-hitting lyrics of the piece. This single, though it shows a more sensitive side of the rapper and evokes tender memories of a first love, is just as captivating as his previous releases, thanks to the pop influences that have been incorporated. The memorable melodies of Bon ami make this third track a fantastic earworm that sets the stage wonderfully for the release of the album.

The images that accompany the song take us to the heart of a story illustrating the passage from friendship to love, unfolding in all its shyness and ambiguity. Touching, yet simple in its beauty with breathtaking scenery, the music video for Bon ami, which was directed by studio Bien à vous, mirrors the love that is spoken of in the lyrics and into which the rapper finally lets himself fall.

Franky Fade is taking advantage of the release of his new single to announce that he will be taking over the stages of several venues across the province in November and December. This series of concerts will end on December 9th in Montreal, when the rapper and singer will present CONTRADICTIONS in front of a sold out Ausgang Plaza.
