Fro. is a French hip hop artist who has teamed up with producer JYWE for his latest track. A meditation on the current state of things, with an emphasis on war, it’s called Soldat.
By Graeme Smith
Soldat is the French word for “soldier” and much of the lyrics in this track call out the world ongoing, tragic conflicts, portraying to them as cases of history repeating and a foretelling of the future. The message is delivered through the kind of flowing, apathetic vocals that French hip hop is known for, accompanied by a track that combines percussion with twinkling keys.
