Bobby Bazini Returns Full Throttle with “C’est La Vie”


Canadian soul singer Bobby Bazini, a four time JUNO nominee, whose first two studio albums went platinum, will be releasing his third LP through Universal Music Canada, the country’s biggest record label, later this year. Heralding the disc is newly released single “C’est La Vie”, an infectious jam infused with bluesy keys and one of the best songs released so far this year. The original composition sprouted from an idea by producer Martin Terefe who has worked with Shawn Mendes, Mike Posner, and MIKA. Bobby tasked himself with writing a meaningful lyric to this common expression avoiding sappy sentimentality. He says that the song is “about being in love but also being ‘at love’ – not a fiery phase of early passion in a relationship but a gentle bond which gives fortitude.”

Bazini co-wrote the songs on the upcoming album with a number of other composers in Los Angeles, Nashville, and London. It is expected to explore both familiar territory as well as add fresh tempos and sounds. He has stuck to his preferred approach of an organic process with real musicians in the studio, though will also give the songs a more contemporary feel. He plans on touring in early 2017. Tomorrow (Saturday, September 17, 2016), Bobby will perform his new song in Montreal’s Bell Centre at the Global Citizen event, a concert calling for an end to AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Usher will be performing along with Metric, Grimes, Half Moon Run, and Charlotte Cardin. In 2014, Bobby Bazini’s album Where I Belong sold 102,000 copies in Canada. He performed at the JUNOs in 2015. We’re glad he’s back!  iTunes
