The agreement will see Warner Chappell Music, outside Belgium, represent Stromae’s catalog including his writer’s shares of his multi-Platinum selling albums Cheese, Racine carrée and Multitude, containing hits such as Alors on Danse, L’enfer, Formidable, Papaoutai.
Warner Chappell says that it will also represent Stromae’s composer share on several songs he has written for other artists, including hits from artists Bigflo & Oli and Orelsan.
