A pinch of Michael Jackson, a dash of Laurie Anderson, a sprinkle of Judith Butler, stir, and you get Chris – the title of Christine and the Queens’ second album, but also the name of her male alter ego. By cutting part of her original name and embodying this persona who looks like an athletic and murky boy, she frees herself from rigid gender restrictions and brings strength and toughness to the 23 (!) songs of this double album (both parts mirroring each other). Inspired by 1980s electronica and 1990s gangsta funk, Chris’ music is not only groovy and catchy, but also reinforces the concept that dictates Héloïse Letissier’s (Chris/Christine’s real name) music. Whether the listener wears stilettos or cowboy boots, their feet will be carried away by the catchy beats of Doesn’t Matter or 5 Dollars. However, she can also lower her guard and slow down the tempo of her queer tornado with songs like Make Some Sense or Les Yeux mouillés. 



One of the main focuses of the lyrics on this album (written in English and French) is the body, particularly in Girlfriend and Damn (What Must a Woman Do), in which much attention is paid to saliva and sweat. It’s through the body that Chris’ fluctuating identity and creative dancing are displayed the most. Gender and art are closely connected in her work. By working around the concept of double identity in her performance, Chris attempts to highlight the social construct of sexual identity, and does it both seriously and humorously. “I'm gone in a flick, but back in a second”, she sings in the single Girlfriend. Could she/he be playing a fun little magic trick on us? © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
