"I even don't think I know anything about politics"

The rapper then goes on to the symbolic scope of the cover of his album, on which he appears in front of a flag hoisted at the top of a building.

“Often, since there is a flag, it feels like I'm presenting a political program, but I see myself more as a painter who expresses feelings,” he explains.

“From the start, we've been trying to get me to say things, to put me in one camp or another.

When we make music, there are often people who will come and try to get you back and it's always a little weird because I don't see myself in a camp.

I even don't think I know anything about politics, ”concludes Orelsan.

Not sure that he is launching an invitation to Emmanuel Macron to come to one of his concerts at the Accor Arena, where he will perform five times as part of his tour next March.
