Tayc: the crazy rise of the prince of afro love"

Everything smiles on Tayc, singer RnB, who publishes this Friday a reissue of his album “Fleur Froide”, participates in “Dance with the stars” and plays in the first French Christmas romcom of Netflix.

He’s everywhere, Tayc. The young singer of RnB, prince of “Afro love”, this music with an ultra-sensual rhythm, will evolve this evening, like every Friday on the floor of Dance with the stars, on TF1. A difficult exercise which earned him a blocked hip after the first repetition. But an exhibition which also earned him the recognition of a new audience.

“It’s more the same people who stop me [dans la rue], it’s not the same people who know me anymore, it’s families now. It’s magnificent, ”he rejoices.

Charming comedy

Tayc has not finished being recognized in the street. Christmas Flow, the Netflix Christmas romantic comedy of which he is one of the heroes, is in the top 10 of the platform. In this charming comedy, he plays a rapper with misogynistic words, who falls in love with a feminist journalist, camped by the bubbly Shirine Boutella, a young Franco-Algerian actress seen in Lupin and Valid. With this mini-series in three episodes, Tayc is taking his first steps as an actor.

“I want to make films and really well, he says. And I think it was a good test, it was a ‘level 1′”.

And then the young singer-songwriter from Marseille is releasing the reissue of his first album this Friday, Cold Flower, – after 4 mixtapes – enriched with 14 new tracks, including the very lascivious one Dodo.

Cold Flower, released in December 2020, was certified platinum (100,000 sales equivalent, according to the Snep), and the single The weather has reached the equivalent of 500,000 sales.

In 2022, he will be on tour throughout France. A tour that he will complete in Paris at the AccorHotels Arena. More than ever, his pseudonym Tayc, (for “Take all you can”, “take all that you can”) sticks to his formidable rise.
