Les Nubians is a duo of sisters who've lived in France and Chad. I'd describe their music as Sade meets Soul II Soul with worse writing/arranging/producing. I heard the group's song Les Portes Du Souvenir on a World Market compilation CD and immediately loved it. Streaming music and YouTube not being available at the time, I had to buy this CD to hear more of the duo's music, which, for the most part, doesn't resemble the previously mentioned song. Too much hip-hop influence for my tastes; females rapping in French isn't my thing. Not terrible, but not something I seek out to hear. Ah well, we all have CDs in our collections that we own for just one track.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #100
Peak on Billboard's R&B albums chart: #25
Tracks: Other than Les Portes Du Souvenir, the only tracks that do anything for me are the more pop-sounding Demain and Si Je T'Avais Écouté.
