Title: Why aren't there more songs like this?!

This is one song that really puts you in the mood! One of the best ways to close an album as well! Take your madam to the dancefloor and just dance the night away to this!
Près Du Cœur by Pépé Kalle! For me, other than his big bad Soukous Bangers, this lingala flavoured smooth-jazz song is my favourite Pépé Kalle song ever!

There is also a jazz/blues song like Lolo rarely.

You’ve got to love Pepe Kalles versatility and quality he really did it all, a bit of jazz infusion, traditional rumba, some soukouss sound and even ndombolo kind too. RIP

This is genuinely the kind of uniqueness that missing in today's Congolese music! Now it's just over-computerised Afro house songs with explicit content and etc... The "pop" stuff. Pépé Kalle! What a voice man! May he R.I.P!

Songs like this, is proof that Pepe Kalle really had the soul in him. He knew when to sing soulfully. I can't help but wave my imaginary lighter in the air when I play this one. If it was up to me, this song would be played on oldschool R&B/soul radio lol.

I'll join you on the imaginary lighter! Haha! And I totally agree with you on the "soul" statement! Songs of that time really had a true emotion to it! However, all isn't doom and gloom when we have Ferré, ready to revolutionise Congolese music with his classical song!
