Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

Hello my name is Bilal Hassani. I am 19 years old and I am a singer, a songwriter and a youtuber. I make music because that´s what I love and I just like making people happy.

Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tourdates, new videos?!

My new single is „jaloux“ it`s „jealous“ in french and it`s about all the hate I receive. I love singing it to the audience on concerts because everyone sings along with me here in France and I am very proud of this single. My album „kingdom“ came out in april and my tour starts in october. I can´t wait! The first show is actually sold out and some others too! I am really excited for the tour.

Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!

I love pop music. I actually don´t just sing i also write my songs, compose my songs and do a little bit of producing. I had a very classical training in singing and acting and then i went to a private school when I was 12. I like making jokes! If i didn´t know how to sing i would have become a comedian. I love wigs.

What can we expect 2019 from you?

I am going to keep on being on stage and going on tour and doing music. Maybe switch to some other artistic things. Arts in general is what I absolutely love to do.

Do you have bad habits? A guily pleasure you cant seem to quit?

I recently quit my phone. I used to be 8-9 hours a day on my phone and now I reduced it to 2 hours a day  and  I am very very proud of that.

Beside music, do you have any special talents?

I do dance and act and I love theater. It`s all artistic preferences but with a music basis.

Being on stage feels like….!
