Know More About Blanche Bailly.
Cameroonian vocalist Blanche Bailly serves up smoky contemporary R&B infused with both Latin rhythms and touches of dancehall. After releasing her debut single, “Kam We Stay,” in 2016, Bailly grew to becoming one of Africa’s strongest R&B vocalists, turning up the pop appeal on subsequent tracks like 2020’s “Mes Respects.”
Blanche Bailly was born Tatah Larinatte Bailly in Kumba, Cameroon in 1995. When she was 12, her family moved to France and it was there she decided to pursue her musical dreams. It was a slow road at first but Bailly eventually relocated to London to try to find more opportunities.
At first, she released music under the moniker Swagger Queen, but her 2016 single “Kam We Stay” was released in 2016 under her new stage name, Blanche Bailly. The song was a huge success. Then she followed it the next year with the single “Mimbayeur,” featuring a cameo from rapper Minks. This confirmed Bailly as a star in Central Africa. It set the stage for what followed.
Songs like 2018’s “Ndolo” led tours to France, Geneva, and parts of Europe. In 2020, her track “Mes Respects” turned away from the driving rhythms.
Now, she is mum to baby Jayden and owner of Queen Mimba empire.
