Belgian music artist Stromae has topped the list of nominees at this year's edition of the "Victoires de la Musique" in France. He will not be the only one making the trip from Belgium, with Angèle also having been nominated for the Best Female Artist prize.
On Monday, the nominees for the 2023 edition of the "Victoires de la Musique" were announced, with the French awards ceremony widely regarded as the pinnacle of honours a Francophone artist can earn for their music.
The Belgian superstar Stromae, who was recently named French-speaking Belgians' favourite public figure, led this year's list with four nominations. He will attempt to add another few prizes to his already-long list of accolades at the ceremony slated to take place on the outskirts of Paris on 10 February.

Indeed, he will be competing for the following prizes: Best Male Artist, Best Album for his LP "Multitude," Best Song for "L'enfer," in which he details his troubles with depression, and Best Audiovisual Creation for his music video for the song "Fils de Joie."
His compatriot Angèle is one of three nominees contending for the title of Best Female Artist.
