Music Break. Iyadede

We like stylish Rwandese-Brooklyn singer Iyadede‘s take (in French) on the Theophilus London song “Flying Overseas.”  His verses (in English) are retained unchanged in Iyadede’s cover.  The video also visits some of the sites of Brooklyn. (Yes, there’s some Manhattan in there.)  The Brooklyn tourism bureau should pay the makers of the video. And if you’re wondering: no, French is not the lingua franca in Brooklyn (unless you speak Creole).
