Ever heard of Guernsey?

Well, I haven’t, not until today. Guernsey, pronounced gurn-zee (thank you Wikipedia) is a British Crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy.

Jena Lee’s “Mon Ange” MV

French emo/r&b/rock singer Jena Lee released the music video for her single “Mon Ange” back in March. I’ve obviously been sleeping on this news because this song just happens to be my favorite on her sophomore album “Ma Reference“. Though it’s in French and I don’t understand a word, I absolutely love the song because of the emotion in the lyrics, however, the music video lacks the depth and substance that carries the track. There’s not much I can say except it tied in a little with the song. The lyrics had something like “don’t be my angel, become my demon“, and the love interest became a fallen angel in the video. Anyways, check out the music video below and be sure to purchase “Ma Reference” now and support Jena Lee. Continue reading “Jena Lee’s “Mon Ange” MV”

Kayna Samet’s “Yema”

The beautiful and talented French singing sensation Kayna Samet, has released the music video for her latest single ‘Yema‘. The song will be included on her upcoming album “Jeunes & Libres (Young & Free)”, to be released on April 11, 2011 (a bit far but oh well).

Though a French song, you can still feel Kayna’s passion pulling you in with every note she sings. The middle eastern melodies are also well harmonized by the featured artist Indila.

Check out the music video, and the English translation below to see exactly what I’m talking about:
