Welcome to the community, have a pleasant stay.

My personal list: Lara Fabian (she's Belgian, but has several albums in French), Céline Dion (Canadian), Garou (Canadian), Jean-Jacques Goldman (French).

You can find all French artists here: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/country/france
And here: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/artists you can find which French-speaking artist sings in which genre.

I guess we have something in common! I also want to lean the language but unfortunately I find it too hard kkkk.
It's up to your taste but I definitely recommend Maitre Gims or GIMS which is what he goes by now days. He's pretty famous and trendy. Also Kendji Girac if you like calmer music than GIMS.

Hello! I highly recommend Charles Aznavour (French singer of Armenian extraction).
Otherwise, I'm fond of Kenza Farah's songs.

Hi! I recommend a little bit of Avalon Jazz Band, a young french group. It's simple, but very pleasant to your ears, especially when Tatiana Eva-Marie sings.

- Hi ; let's say my two favourite and still alive French singers with awesome lyrics (and tunes) are : THOMAS FERSEN (Monsieur, Chocolat...), MICHEL JONASZ (Je voulais te dire que je t'attends, La Boîte de jazz...) and JULIETTE (A voix basse...).

The first two ones are well featured here, and abundantly translated, the third one not sufficiently (I'd need help in English to post some more translations of her lyrics...).

Of course, this is without mentioning the oldest, greatest talents (I can only see Aznavour here), who've long been enthroned in the national Pantheon : Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, Claude Nougaro, Juliette Gréco - and so many others... Bye.

If you want more modern music, I recommend Amel Bent, Vitaa, Slimane, Louane, Maitre Gims (and his brother Dadju), Kenji, Jennifer, Vianney etc. If you search them on Youtube, you'll find many more 😊

I'm also a huge fan of GIMS. In addition to him, check out Orelsan and Jean-Michel Jarre. JMJ's music is wonderful.
