The acts continue to be confirmed in France’s Destination Eurovision. The next artist to be confirmed is young songwriter who has recently stepped out on stage. Nassi will compete with the song “Rêve de gamin” (The dream of a child).

Nassi is a singer-songwriter. He originally made a name for himself writing for other artists, such as Soprano, Claudio Capéo, and Kendji Girac.

But Nassi had his own stories to tell and released his first single early in 2017. “La vie est belle” reached the French singles chart and received the equivalent of gold certification for its streaming numbers.

Nassi now has two singles under his belt, and plans to release his debut album later this year.

Nassi is introduced in the promo video, shown in the familiar surrounds of a recording studio, sitting in front of a wall of Gold records. He talks about how he moved away from just being a songwriter and took the risk of making his own music.

Nassi also speaks about Eurovision, and how it ties into the theme of his song, “Rêve de gamin” (The dream of a child).. He says he put himself in the mind of an eight-year-old kid watching Eurovision, being inspired and dreaming big.

The short clip of “Rêve de gamin” reveals a similar sound to his previous singles. It’s sound of modern French chart pop, bold and dramatic, with tender vocals sung in French.

It’s another strong addition to the line-up of Destination Eurovision, which is shaping up to be one of the highest quality national finals in the 2018 season.

Nothing special. Same europop music as Demy. It doesnt mean you’ll get a good place. We’ll see. He’s hot tho.

Don’t like this one at all. Europop with some ethnic sound but not really appealing.

Wow! I really like this song!
It’s current and radio friendly. Sounds european yet it has an oriental flavour.
I can see a song like this performing on the Eurovision stage. It would be great!

Trying to be the next Loreen ? Do you even know Nassi ? Nassi and Loreen are totally different artists. I dont really understand your commentary if you dont even know Nassi music. He always did music like this

When will all songs be released on Spotify?

Mako
Guest

It seems that the songs won’t be released on Spotify. France 2 didn’t state anything about that. And personally, I don’t see the interest to revealed them on the platform now. It’s better to keep them and to release them after the final, as for the Melodifestivalen.

Mako
Guest

But they’ll surely be released later on Spotify or Youtube.
