If you've never heard of Stromae, that's likely going to change very soon. The electro-songsmith—real name: Paul Van Haver—specializes in soulful bangers that sound at once sophisticated and bombastic, and he's a huge star in his native Belgium. The mania seems to be spreading for the hip-hop Jacques Brel (to use a crude but apt description), judging by the high demand for this big gig in Chicago. Lollapalooza should only boost his profile.
