What's so good?
By Aaron Blum | Feb 14, 2013

Yelle's new track "L'Amour Parfait" opens with the verse "I don't know what you mean, but it means a lot to me."  Well, I can agree with half of that, as the rest of the song is in French. But thanks to a translation, the song's title simply means "Perfect Love."  Just in time for Valentine's Day, right? Or no? Sifting through the translated lyrics, thanks to Yelle's website, the song seems to have a darker undertone.

The French electronic pop band's new single has an unusual for Yelle, but warranted, hip-hop vibe.  It's almost like they teamed up with Three Six Mafia on this track. Whatever they did, I like it.  I also can't get out of my head how much the intro reminds me of Rick Ross' "Everday I'm Hustling."

Yelle has been on hiatus for a minute and I'm glad to see them out and about again.  Their new EP should be available to buy in the US soon.
