Now here's something I've never featured here before -- a French girl band. Together Jade, Patou and Sethanie are ADICT (with only one "d"). They hope to follow in the footsteps of Destiny Child, and they're off to a hot start with their catchy, Zouk-tinged French song, "Dis moi tout."

The hottest French singers of today's generation were assembled to cover the French songs of the influential 80's/90's Pop singer Jean-Jacques Goldman on the tribute album, Generation Goldman. The idea was for the hits of a generation ago to be reinterpreted by the top singers of today. The project has been an absolute smash with the French public, who remember the songs fondly.
Below are 3 videos from the album. Watch them all and vote for your favorite at the bottom.
Video 1: First up is the ensemble song, "Famille." The video is a good way to get to know who's who in today's French music scene. I've listed the artists in the video in order of first appearance and linked to their music in case you hear someone you really like:
Irma (piano, at the beginning)
Tal (shown talking, not singing)
Judith (in bandana)
Ben Falinsky (of the band Ivyrise)
Video 3: Another hit off the album, "Envole-moi," features M. Pokora and Tal. M. Pokora is kind of a French Justin Timberlake, and Tal is sort of like Rihanna in her music, but not her image.
