Cœur de pirate is the self-titled debut album by Canadian pop singer Cœur de pirate, released September 16, 2008 on Grosse Boîte.

"Ensemble"[edit]

The album attracted some media attention in the United States in February 2009 when François 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 and a favourable review from blogger Perez Hilton.[1]

Chart performance[edit]

As of June 21, 2009, the album had spent 80 weeks on Canada's Nielsen SoundScan charts,[2] and has charted in France, Switzerland and Belgium.[3]

Awards[edit]

The album was nominated for Francophone Album of the Year at the 2009 Juno Awards, and was a longlisted nominee for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize.[4]
