The song reached number one in Belgium, Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland and Turkey, and also reached number one on the European Hot 100 Singles. The song also became a success in North America, as on 1 April 2010, "Alors on danse" was released in Canada, receiving airplay in Québec from NRJ Radio stations throughout the province, as well as CKOI-FM. Four months after the European release, almost 1 million copies worldwide were sold. The song spent 57 weeks on the German Singles Chart making it the 40th song to spend 1 year or longer on that chart and the song with the 31st longest run.[1] According to Francophonie Diffusion, "Alors on danse" was the most-played Francophone single worldwide of 2010.[2] As of July 2014, it is the 74th best-selling single of the 21th century in France, with 334,000 units sold.[3]

Music video[edit]

At the beginning of the video Stromae is sitting in his office. After a hard day's work, he apparently wants to visit his child, but as he arrives at his wife's house he is told to leave. He proceeds to walk down the street, and as he does this a homeless man steals his coat. He then enters a pub. At first he does not appear to enjoy himself, but as he becomes more inebriated he begins to sing on a small stage. After his performance he passes out, and is brought back by an unknown man from the pub to his office desk in the first scene, where the video started.

Covers and remixes[edit]

Also, American singer Lumidee released a cover version of the song along with rapper Chase Manhattan in March 2010. Kanye West and Gilbere Forte released a remix together in August 2010.
