An incredibly personal and meaningful album, each song was tailor-made for Jeanick and written by a team of over 25 talented writers and producers, including Kayla Diamond, Andréanne A. Malette, Éric Charland, Patrick Bouchard, Max-Antoine Gendron, Alexe Gaudreault, and more. Aaron Paris, known for his work with Drake, DJ Khaled, Kali Uchis, and others, provided strings on four songs, and a team of stellar Montréal-based producers, including Gautier Marinof, LucaTheProducer, Charles Guay, and more, helped bring the songs to life with Jeanick’s jaw-dropping vocals.
“It is a privilege to present this album to you, written for me with lyrics that tell my story,” explains Jeanick about her new album. “I hope you can recognize yourself in each of the songs, that they touch your heart and make you dance. I can’t wait to perform them on stage for you all!”
Vivante includes the 80s disco-inspired “Dérange-moi”, the stunningly beautiful “La saison des cyclones”, the touching “Quand le rideau tombe,” the electrifying “Dans la peau”, and more songs that you will instantly fall in love with.
The first single to release from the album, “Dans la peau”, has had an unbelievable start, gaining 70 spots on Québec’s Top 100 chart after just one week, jumping from #97 to #27. The track also debuted at #22 on Québec’s Top 25 Adult Pop chart.
Alongside the release of Vivante, today also marks the beginning of Jeanick’s new partnership with Laura Canada, a leader in women’s fashion. Laura will be styling the singer’s wardrobe for upcoming television appearances, performances, and more.
The new album arrives months after her rendition of “I’ll Never Love Again” from A Star is Born, for which she received a standing ovation during her performance on America’s Got Talent: All Stars in January. Vivante marks the latest era for the singer after the release of her self-titled record label debut album, Jeanick Fournier, which debuted at #13 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, and at #1 in Québec with over 2,000 copies sold in the first week. One month after the album released, it was still sitting strong at #4 on the Top English Albums chart, and at #10 overall in Québec. After its release in 2022, Jeanick Fournier stayed in the Top 3 on ADISQ’s Top English Albums from a Québec-Based Artist chart until the end of the year.
The album’s single “Ça ira” was a massive success at radio across Québec, peaking at #25 on the Mainstream AC chart. The album and single’s success helped Jeanick earn a coveted spot on Journal de Montréal’s “Top 10 Personalities of the Year” list. She was also named amongst La Presse’s “Champions of 2022”.
The star artist continues her breakout year with a tour across Québec this fall and next year, announcing additional dates this week. See the new dates below and find tickets HERE.
