In the very personal song in which he deals with his burnout the singer describes the dark thoughts he experienced. Stromae speaks of suicidal thoughts that he isn’t proud of: “Sometimes you think that’s the only way to shut them up, these thoughts that made life a living hell”.
Stromae also mentions the mixture of influences that have shaped his singing: “a little Bolivia, a little Congo and some Rwanda”. “We are not defined by one personality characteristic. We are all a little of everything” he said.
