BlueNefertiti, aka Celia Faussart, first came to international prominence as one half of the Afro-French hip-hop/R&B duo Les Nubians in the late '90s. Faussart still records with her sister and bandmate Helene (they plan to release a new album this year), but now she also performs as smoldering grand dame of cool BlueNefertiti in her own project called Paris@Night, in which she blends French cabaret, soul, hip-hop and more. On this track, Faussart hot-wires a deep, jazzy groove with her own velvety French rap. Proceeds from tonight's performance will benefit Oasis for Children, an orphanage in Haiti destroyed by the country's Jan. 12 earthquake.
