Why Aya Nakamura at the opening of the Olympic Games is not surprising

With all due respect her detractors, the choice of the singer for the opening ceremony of the Paris Games is neither surprising nor scandalous.

For three days, the controversy has not subsided. From social networks to television sets, opinions follow one another and critics are unleashed: Aya Nakamura has- does she have her place à the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games ? No, replies Estelle Denis on the RMC set: "I would have put Patrick Bruel", launches the host, for whom the show should be assured! by “a monster of French song”, when on the set Michel Sardou, VĂ©ronique Sanson or Patrick Bruel are mentioned.

But no offense! Estelle Denis and without calling into question the long careers of these artists, the choice of Aya Nakamura, if it came to the fore. to be confirmed, is absolutely not surprising. And even less shocking. It is even logical, if we are to believe the dizzying figures of the career of the singer from Aulnay-sous-Bois. Since her debut in 2017, she is today the most listened to French-speaking female artist on the platform. Spotify with 8.5 million monthly listeners, but also the most listened to French singer in the world.

3.7 million subscribers on Instagram, 7.5 on YouTube where her videos have accumulated tens of millions of views, 2 Victoires de la Musique and 7 NRJ Music Awards… How can we not consider Aya Nakamura as the ultimate #39;the most essential female artist of her generation ? A popularity in France, à to which is added an incredible success to internationally. Before her, few French çais artists à having reached this milestone – we can cite David Guetta, DJ Snake or Daft Punk – and even fewer women.

Emmanuel Macron would therefore, according to L'Express, personally choose the interpreter of Djadja to sing à the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games and allegedly asked him to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. to cover another world-famous French singer… Edith Piaf. So no offense to the critics, who perfectly illustrate the fractures in our society. and the break between generations, the choice of the President of the Republic is not surprising.
