Formule 7: Fally Ipupa Drops New Album

Congolese superstar Fally Ipupa has released his new album Formule 7 available via Elektra France / Warner Music France.

Ipupa recently visited the USA’s NPR Weekend Edition Sunday to share insight into his new album and more with host Ayesha Rascoe.

The singles “Se Yo”, “Science-Fiction” and “Garde du Cœur (feat. Charlotte Dipanda)” were released leading up to the album’s release with accompanying music videos that have collectively garnered over 12 million views.

He is the most happening musician in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Ipupa also released his striking COLORS session for “Par Terre” – a performance dance.

To date, the Congolese artist has over 20 million combined social media followers, hundreds of millions of streams, and was just nominated for Best International Act at the 2022 BET Awards.

For over two decades, Ipupa has helped pave the way for Congolese and African music in the mainstream, honoring the legacy of African rumba while updating its sound for today’s audiences. He was part of the first wave of musicians to fill large venues in France with Congolese music – in 2020, Ipupa sold out Paris’ 20K+ capacity Accor Arena.

In addition to his music, Ipupa gives back to his community through philanthropic endeavors in partnerships with UNESCO, UNDP and UNICEF, currently serving as a national ambassador for the latter in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Since 2017, Ipupa has worked directly with UNICEF in the fight against malnutrition, which affects 10 million children across the DRC every year.
