With such an album title, we could have thought that Booba, one of French rap’s leaders, would be as arrogant as usual but he actually has published some of his most vulnerable and melodic tracks yet – while still using coarse punchlines and strong autotune.

It’s not surprising that the rising Belgian rapper Damso, who shares production similarities with Booba and is featured on the latter’s track “113”, has declared that the (impressively subtle and complex) hook of “Friday” was his favorite from Trône.

But we’re also pleased to see the beautiful 2016 single “DKR” included as a bonus track.
