M. Pokora - 'Mirage/Oblivion'

Matt Pokora participated in the third season of French Popstars, released his solo first album a year later in 2004 and had a huge success in France ever since. He's always done RnB in French, but on his 3rd album he collaborated with American producers and writers such as Timbaland and Ryan Leslie, and 12 out of 14 songs were sung in English.
For his new album he seem to have made an French album again, but translated several of the songs, not much unlike what Enrique Iglesias has done for a while with his Spanish/English releases.

Matt Pokora released a single from his new album last june in called 'Juste Une Photo De Toi' -a ballad in French. Now he's released the follow up to that single and a video - or as a matter of fact - two videos.
They're awefully similiar though, the only difference is that one of them is called 'Mirage'(number 1 on the sales charts in France) and targeted toward the French-speaking market and that the other one is called 'Oblivion' and is targeted towards USA and the rest of Europe that doesn't speak French.

The album is already out in France(where it's sold gold), Belgium, Germany and Switzerland. The Deluxe version also includes English language versions of several of the songs.

Here's the video for 'Oblivion'. A Matt Pokora video is always a treat for the eyes.
