Honestly I wasn't really expecting the revival of soul music to start in France, it sounds a bit odd to be honest. Well, only until I actually heard Ben l'Oncle Soul, because his cd is awesome.
His international succes came after his cover of Seven Nation Army, which was awesome by the way. And though his original songs are amazing too, I wanted to leave you guys with his cover of Barbie Girl. If you can make that song into a proper piece of music, you are one talented guy, wouldn't you agree?
