Slimane: what were his inspirations for “Mon Amour”?

Slimane is heartbroken in his poignant track “Mon Amour”. The artist imagined it with his two friends Yaacov and Meïr Salah while he was on tour in Switzerland. A devastating breakup pushed him to share his pain in song. “It came out like a cry from the heart, like something that needed to be expressed. It was very instinctive, animalistic, almost. I didn’t hide this broken heart because I wrote a record (Chronicles of a Cupid, Editor’s note) talking about this story.», he revealed about his piece to the newspaper 20 Minutes.

This song came later. At that moment, this thought came to me: ‘I made a whole album that talks about that and still today I love you and I still don’t know why. I rewatch all the films in the world and it’s always the same: I love you. That’s the story of this song.», concludes Slimane.
