“A new record like I want to make, only with girls I like and a few guys too, but by my hand. Not by selling rights to majors or labels who, anyway, don’t want me anymore because I’m a 60-year-old pop singer…”

And it really works: in three days, Lio has already raised greater than 60% of the quantity she wants on the KissKiss crowdfunding platform. Fans solely have one month to pre-order the CD, take part in a raffle to win a night or an aperitif with the singer, purchase a bonus t-shirt along with her picture, or donate no matter they need to assist the challenge…

On the location, Lio explains that she determined to name on different artists to compose or write, like Hoshi, Betta Lemme and even Isia Marie, “a new generation of girls who [lui] made me want to come back,” she explains. The disc is scheduled for launch in March 2025.

Few royalties

Lio has by no means hidden that he typically has problem making ends meet. “I don’t live badly, but I live in tight flow,” she confided to Gala two years in the past. I don't have any money. I by no means took care of all that…” The singer had good years with her hits “Banana Split” and “Brunettes don't depend for plums”, but she was only a performer, which limits the final royalties. In total, she said she received between 5,000 and 12,000 euros per year in rights from Adami.

I started out as a star at the Olympia and today performs on party committee evenings as a ball singer, with all the respect I owe to this profession…”

Recently, the resumption of his well-known “Banana Split” within the advert for the iPhone 14 allowed him to place somewhat butter within the spinach. But not sufficient, it appears, to permit him to launch a brand new album, therefore the assistance requested from his followers. At 61, Lio hasn't mentioned his final phrase: “Who said that old brunettes don't count for plums?” » she laughs in her message.
