Review: Reniss – C’est La Vie

Reniss has had a stellar consistent run this year, beating out every competition to reign as the undisputed 2013 Queen … scratch that; … to reign as the undisputed Priestess of Cameroonian Urban Music.
Reniss, is proof that Cameroonian women can attain commercial success without selling out. From “The Apple” (featuring her mentor, rapper/producer Jovi) reaching 15,000+ plays in 3 days, to several fan favourite singles, to the release of her critically acclaimed “Afrikan LuV” EP; Reniss, The Priestess, is garnering an ever growing religious following of fans.
“C’est La Vie” , off her Afrikan LuV EP comes with a breath of fresh air as Reniss, poses on the LeMonstre produced song with childish candour any average Cameroonian can relate to.
Here Reniss displays an understanding of the importance of a sweeping chorus: the seemingly repetitive chorus in french and the powerful interludes give the song a Cameroon in miniature feeling.
C’est La Vie places emphasis on its refrain but its multi-layered instrumentation gives the Reniss’ energetic voice a previously unheard depth. The song’s mix of haunting Western Cameroonian Chants as backing vocals, kick drums and unadorned percussions fill in the spaces between Reniss’ drawn-out syllables.
As musically rich as “C’est La Vie” is, however, Reniss’ noticeable leap in vocal confidence highlights the track. She gracefully lingers on the last line of the verses and attacks the upbeat chorus’ first words, “C’est la vie, tu n’as pas le choix” head on.
“C’est La Vie” showcases the all-around development of Reniss as she prepares to release her second effort, Her Freshman Album slated to drop in December.
