One of the most common questions among international fans is "what is he singing about?" In particular, many people are curious about the lyrics to "Double Je" (Dual Me), Christophe Willem’s biggest single so far.
"Double Je", written by French superstar Zazie, talks about the difficulty of defining ourselves as one single thing. As the title suggests, the singer feels there is a split in his personality, that he is several different people at once. It’s about all the different 'costumes' we try on as we’re growing up and trying to figure out what kind of person we’ll become. The music video takes the concept one step further, as Christophe enrols himself in a self-help group where he confesses his problem to a group of strangers.
I’ve added English subtitles to the music video below, so that fans can follow along with the lyrics. The translation is the best I could come up with, but please feel free to post any suggestions!
Translations of Christophe’s other songs, including “Jacques A Dit” are coming soon!
