I know some of these have already been posted but i haven’t been able to watch them until now :(
I just want to say I would love to have him sing to me in english allll night long ;)
Reblogging, of course, for the day I’m finally conversant in French. I’ve just started learning, so I kind of understand a little a what’s being said at the beginning. (Ça va?…)
Stromae has such a pleasant baritone speaking voice, doesn’t he? It’s nice to listen, even though I don’t understand.
But I have to ask, why do the French call him “Stroma-ay”? Not that that’s any better than in America, where he’s mostly called “Stromay”.
Ooo yes his voice is very pleasant. Like even though I can’t understand him, I’ll listen to whole 30 minute videos because…well not even just because of his voice, he just seems so nice in everything he says and you can tell he thinks about everything he says. It’s nice to see that. Also I hate how Americans say his name 😒 there’s no accent or effort. I wish they at least said it like stro-my…
paizlea when he became famous in France, journalists started to call him “Stroma-ay” instead of “stromay” but he didn’t say to them that they were wrong… (apparently, he didn’t really care) so now some people say “stroma-ay” and others who know the real pronunciation say “stromay” ;)
stromaevanhaver Actually, the way many people in America pronounce it (Stromay) is wrong. Here, “ay” sounds kind of like your word “mais”. “Stro-my” is the correct way, but I can’t think of a French word that rhymes with “my”. Anyone know?
Edit: “Stro-my” sounds like “Stro-mae.” Like “maestro” but reversed. I can’t believe I didn’t think of that before. It’s noon here, but my brain’s still not working right. :-)
MMMhhh okay. Yes so stro-my is the great pronunciation ;)
In france people say “Stromaé”
I think I read somewhere that it was purposely a play on the word maestro which is pronounced my-stro therefore stromae should be pronounced stro-my
yes that’s right ! but a lot of people pronounce it badly.
