Belgian singer-rapper, Stromae has officially released his new single, Santé (Health), which debuted on Friday morning (October 15). The long-awaited album will be the follow-up to Racine Carrée, which sold over 5.6 million copies worldwide, and will arrive ahead of the singer's return to the stage following a hiatus to focus on other projects.
The new song builds on a foundation rhythm with electronic samples while the vocalist recounts a storey to his listeners, similar to his past work.
The music video for the song will be released on Friday at 6:00 PM. The beat is influenced by South American cumbia, and Stromae sings about those who must work while others enjoy themselves.
