After the undeniable success of her most recent single "Brûler les ponts feat. Souldia", which has now reached more than half a million listens on platforms, Marieme surprises us today with her new album, MARIO. The result of several years of work, MARIO takes on the appearance of a "Block Party" where the artist reveals herself more than ever by playing the role of a true orchestra leader.

Undoubtedly her best opus in her career, the Princess of Limoilou surrounds herself with real heavyweights to underline her great comeback. Souldia, Imposs, Sans Pression, Sarahmée, Lost, Webster, Izzy-S, Shah Frank, White-B and Barnev are among the rappers who contribute to make this album an instant classic.

A true return to her roots for the veteran rapper, Marieme makes many nods to old school Hip Hop and R&B while ensuring that her songs are cutting edge, hard hitting and highly original. The result is a timeless, solid sound, full of hope and truth.

The Queen of Street Pop asserts herself and assumes more than ever in her songs as a strong, proud, free, independent, true and unapologetic black woman. "This opus is in fact the "Black Excellence" of here at its best. Today, the words I sing, I found them all in my life. I make the music that tempts me. If you like it, great. If you don't, too bad", she exclaims.

Marieme aka Mario is the master of ceremonies of an impressive work that celebrates the street and the popular and multicultural neighborhoods of Quebec City and Montreal. A video clip with cinematic ambitions for "Gloire à la rue", a legendary piece where Marieme joins her voice to those of Imposs, Sans Pression, White B, Izzy-S and Barnev, will follow.

"Gloire à la rue" is the bridge that the artist builds between the pioneers of the Hip Hop scene here and the new superstars of today and tomorrow. It's a hymn to the celebration of street art done in a raw and realistic way, but in a unifying and optimistic way.
