The debut album by Yoan #1 in sales in Quebec FOR THE 4TH WEEK IN A ROW!

Montréal, Wednesday, April 21, 2015 – For the fourth week running, Yoan is #1 in the album sales charts in Quebec! The big winner of La Voix II, Quebec’s version of The Voice, already received a platinum certification, only 3 weeks after his album was released.

Productions J has already made available to radio stations in English Canada Baby What You Want Me to Do, the first single in English from Yoan’s album. Written by Jimmy Reed in 1959, the song has been covered by many iconic artists including The Everly Brothers, Neil Young and even Elvis Presley. Indeed, the song is already successful on the Quebec airwaves, collecting one Success of the Week and two Strong Reaction mentions on the ADISQ charts.

Yoan’s debut album features collaborations from his coach on La Voix, Isabelle Boulay, as well as rising Canadian country star Brett Kissel, who both perform memorable duets with Yoan: J’entends siffler le train, the French adaptation of 500 Miles by Hedy West, and Good Hearted Woman, the classic by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.

The debut album by Yoan – #1 in sales in Canada!

33 926 copies sold: one of the best starts by an artist from Quebec in 3 years!
Baby What You Want Me to Do
, his first single available on DMDS

MONTREAL, April 1, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ – This week, we witnessed a genuine phenomenon in the Québec music market. Rising young singer-songwriter Yoan, the big winner of La Voix II, Québec’s version of The Voice, came charging out of the blocks with his first album, selling 33 926 copies of his debut album, according to Nielsen SoundScan! An even stronger start than international stars like Madonna or Imagine Dragons, this represents the best opening sales for an album in Canada this year and one of the biggest first week sales by any artist from Quebec in the past 3 years!

On the heels of this excellent news, Productions J takes the opportunity to service radio stations in English Canada with Baby What You Want Me to Do, the first Anglophone single from Yoan‘s album. Written by Jimmy Reed in 1959, the song has been covered by many iconic artists including The Everly Brothers, Neil Young and even Elvis Presley. Indeed, Yoan had chosen the song for his performance during the quarter-finals of La Voix II last winter, watched by over 2.6 million viewers.

Yoan’s debut album features collaborations from his coach on La Voix, Isabelle Boulay, as well as rising Canadian country star Brett Kissel, who both perform memorable duets with Yoan: J’entends siffler le train,the French adaptation of 500 Miles by Hedy West, and Good Hearted Woman, the classic by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Yoan also signs no less than 7 songs on his first album, both in English and in French.

“When I heard Yoan‘s voice for the first time, I immediately knew we’d make a brilliant duo,” says Brett Kissel. “His deep vocals complement my higher ones, and we both love the same genre of music. Waylon Jennings was one of our shared idols, so it made perfect sense to choose Good Hearted Woman for the duet, since in addition to being a classic, it’s got a great rhythm. I’m really happy with the result, and wish Yoan the very best with his debut album!”

Yoan’s debut album, available in stores now!
