Out of the blue - sort of - comes the French entry. It's Alma (Alexandra Maquet) with Requiem. My sources hinted this one a few weeks ago and voilà, here it is! Alma (28) is a new artist to the scene and the entry is nicely ethnic, a bit like female Kendji Girac. But she already knows most likely what she's getting into: she has toured with last year's Amir and the song is written by Nazim Khaled, who is also behind Jái cherchè.
