Amir Au Couer De Moi 2017 France Eurovision 2016

He’s the man who finally took France back into the Eurovision top ten after a seven year absence. On the back of this success, Amir released the critically acclaimed Au couer de moiand now he’s decided to record a lyrics video for the album’s title track.

Written by Amir, Nazim Khaled (who also co-wrote “J’ai cherché” and France’s 2017 entry “Requiem“), Silvio Lisbonne and Manon Romiti, “Au couer de moi” is an uptempo song that’s easy to dance to.

But in spite of the bouncy rhythm, the lyrics are deeply emotional. The former The Voice, la plus belle voix star tells a story about the psychological games that occur in one’s heart, including the wishes, the worries and the doubts.

The song opens ominously, “One day I am a predator, another day I am the prey”. Amir later adds “one day I am the actor that plays in your cinema, another day it’s the destiny that holds the camera.”

“Lost in the heart of mine, at the bottom of my damages,” he sings in the chorus, before finally turning to love for the answer to his troubles, “and when they destroy me, I want to be reborn in you”.

The French-Israeli hitmaker has been riding high ever since his sixth place finish in Stockholm. “J’ai cherché” achieved chart success across Europe, most notably in France, Belgium and Lithuania.

The single won a host of accolades, including the NRJ Award for Francophone Song of the Year, an MTV European Music Award for Best French Act, and a nomination for Victoires de la Musique Award for Song of the Year.

Meanwhile, Au cœur de moi — Amir’s first French-language album — peaked at number six in the French albums chart. It was certified Platinum, after selling more than 200,000 copies.

Amir is also set to embark on his first nation-wide tour, which includes a concert in Paris’ famous L’Olympia on 19 March.

So glad to see him doing well in France after being an upstart- it’s great not only for Amir but talented upstarts who are scared that ESC might ruin their career, but Amir proves you don’t even need to win for it to be a career boost, so long as you come with a good song.

Love it! The last few years his work is absolutely amazing! “J’ai cherché” last year, “On dirait” what a wonderful song and now this “Au coeur de moi”. Well done! Glad he wasn’t forgotten after “The voice” but he tried and worked hard in order to have this success in France and Europe! (including his performance in Eurovision and 6th place in 2016).

I read that too. He’s going to be a commentator for the French tv in Ukraine. Love it!

One of my favorite tracks on the CD! The album itself has gone double platinum in France as well as gold in Switzerland, and his song “On dirait” just went gold on top of platinum for “J’ai cherché”.

Yesterday, Amir also announced that he will be joining Stéphane Bern and Marianne James in Kiev as a commentator for France 2 at the Eurovision final!

This was one of my favorite songs on his album! Question, though- Does it really belong in your New Music Playlist on Spotify? I mean, as it’s a 2016 album and all…

Some people say esc is not useful for career of the singers, but Amir proves them wrong.
