For Bleu Jeans Bleu, there’s a before and after for  their “Coton ouaté era – that began following the release of the mega-hit song –  and stretched over several months. So far, since its release on April 29, 2019, “Coton ouaté” has garnered more than 16 million views on YouTube alone. This unexpected success allowed them to become widely known, and sell out venues, throughout Québec. Because the band released two albums before Perfecto, from which “Coton Ouaté” is taken, the sudden-breakthrough popularity didn’t go to their heads. Their rich repertoire of pop melodies and rock energy has ensured that they’re not one-hit-wonders.

For Top Minou, Bleu Jeans Bleu’s fourth album, the band has stayed the course by offering 11 songs with eclectic themes, the inspiration for which is almost always drawn from the little things of everyday life – and which will doubtless put a smile on everyone’s face once again. In this video interview, Claude Cobra tells us about the creative context of the album, and the genesis of a few of its nuggets.
