Cœur de Pirate – Wicked Games – The Weeknd Cover

Béatrice Martin, aka Coeur de Pirate, performs a sick cover of The Weekend’s hit Wicked Games. The 22 year-old singer songwriter hails from Quebec. She started playing the piano when she was only three years old, and later played as a keyboardist in the post-hardcore band December Strikes First when she was 15 years old. After a brief stint as keyboardist for Bonjour Brumaire, she released her debut album Cœur de pirate in 2008 on Grosse Boîte. The album was subsequently nominated for Francophone Album of the Year at the 2009 Juno Awards.

She attracted wider media attention in February 2009 when Francis Vachon, a photographer from Quebec City, used her song “Ensemble” as the soundtrack to a popular YouTube video depicting his baby son playing with toys, leading to coverage on Good Morning America. Below is an original track entitled Comme Des Enfants.
