● She has boycotted the rap (his brother)
At the microphone of the belgian radio Pure in November 2017, Angela admitted to being a “fluff” news rap, despite the success of his brother, Romeo Elvis. The reason for this? “When Romeo started, it was a little bit of time where two teenagers, brother and sister, talking more, and by boycott, I was even less aware.” This is after they went to one of his concerts that things have changed. “We love each other very much now, there has grown up a bit”, she says. At the time, she was the first parts of concerts of Damso, a way for the singer to be “in the rap game” without being either.

● Proud fan of Beyoncé
Among his many inspirations (Ella Fitzgerald, Helene Segara…), Angèle remains above all an unconditional fan of Beyoncé. A month before the release of Brol , she had made a tribute with a lot of humour to the american star, “only the living being can be both in the past and in the future”, on his account instagram. “When [Beyoncé] was small, she listened to Brol and told me that she really liked… She would have been inspired and would have then decided to become, in turn, a singer,” laughs she.

● A need for recognition
Angela assumes it frankly: it was launched in the music by a need for recognition. “If it works, it is not very good because you’re going to take the big head and it wouldn’t be egocentric,” confided she to Release in September. “But if it doesn’t work, the ego takes a blow.” The pop artist wants to be loved by “everyone” and do so unanimously. Playing in front of two Olympia-filled block and the displays of many festivals, Angela already seems well part.
