‘Real Talk’ is Highsnobiety’s in-depth interview series where we dive deep into the minds of some of the most talented artists on the scene. The conversation flows non-stop during these casual sit-down chats which give viewers a better understanding of what it’s like to be one of the buzziest creatives of our time. This week, we’re featuring Christine and the Queens, a French singer and producer that is blurring the lines of pop, funk, and gender.

Since 2014, Héloïse Letissier has been an unapologetically feminist force to be reckoned with as Christine and the Queens. This year, the French artist fully established herself with the transformative album Chris, a groundbreaking record that simultaneously bends and blends genres and genders.

Following a recent sold-out show at Brooklyn Steel in New York, Letissier stopped by the Highsnobiety office to explain how she (eventually) found her way as a creative and take us back to the moment when two British drag queens ultimately empowered her to write songs. Watch the entire conversation unfold in the video above.
