"I am more than an animal", sings Angèle (23) 'Balance tons quoi'. "Rap music is in, but I notice that they better sell if there is dirty talk throughout. Maybe it is time that those laws, once to disconnect it. A woman who has her legs spread would be normal?" Angèle sings it with a poezelig engelenstemmetje, but the message is hard. Just as the middle finger, which she rears in her pink prinsessenjurk, with the clear message: 'Go fuck yourself'. Also unmistakable is the long armpit hair that they show. "Sunny, hilarious, and much needed", calls 'Le Parisien', the clip of 'Balance tons quoi' - a pun on 'Balance ton cul', or 'Shake your bum'. And the largest newspaper in France is not the only one who is enthusiastic. "Thousand thanks for this video, Angèle. You inspire me", is to read under her video on YouTube. In less than 24 hours time brought Balance tons quoi', which already has a few weeks high in the French charts, more than 2 million views. Unique for a Belgian artist.
Angèle Van Laeken, the little sister of rapper Roméo Elvis, and daughter of musician Serge Van Laeken and actress Laurence Bibot, released last year her debut album. But despite her background of working them on the road. They did that especially with short videos on Instagram, and in a good year time, the company expanded its number of followers from a few thousand to more than 1.4 million. In the clip sings Angèle that she has to deal with people who say that they are her career thanks to her famous parents and brother. But: "What is your problem?", she sings. It is but one example of the sexism that successful women get, the message.
