Winner of the last edition of the “Star Academy”, Pierre Garnier is a hit with his first single “Ceux qu’on été”. He is about to release his first album.

It’s difficult to listen to the radio without coming across Pierre Garnier. His first song “Ceux qu’on été” was played twice on radio stations as diverse as NRJ, adult music radio stations like RFM or Chérie FM and regional radio stations. It will be one of the biggest successes of 2024.

This success is reflected in figures since the title has just been certified diamond single by the SNEP, the National Phonographic Publishing Union, i.e. 50 million streams on the various streaming platforms in France. “Those we were” remained at the top of the Top Singles for four weeks.

Pierre Garnier is not resting on his laurels since he will release a second single, this Friday, May 17: “We know”. A first extract has already been released. With a catchy rhythm, he tackles a heavy subject: mental health. It remains to be seen whether this second title will equal the record start of “Ceux qu’on été” which had recorded 2 million plays on the platforms in 24 hours at the beginning of February.

In the process, the 22-year-old singer Normand will publish his first album, “Every second”, on June 7. To compose it, he was inspired by the music that he simply loves. “I was inspired by what I like to listen to, American and English pop but also hard rock with Led Zeppelin or Guns N’Roses that I listened to when I was little. I wanted to make a mix of all that brought back into French, which is not very common and not very simple,” he explained on regional radio Vibration. He would not reveal whether the album would include any possible collaborations.

And as luck would have it, the day after the album’s release, TF1 will broadcast in prime time a concert from the “Star Academy” tour, live from the Accor Arena in Paris. The tour which is currently taking place and which is sold out is expected on June 15 at the Zénith de Toulouse at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., June 21 at the Narbonne Arena, June 22 at the Zénith de Pau at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and June 23 at Arkea Arena in Floirac, near Bordeaux.
