"Hé, biloute ! Monte l'son ! Hein !" is a French 2008 song. It was the soundtrack of the 2008 motion picture comedy Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis and was recorded by Ch'ti DJ, a French DJ. It achieved success in France.

Song information[edit]

It was written by Krista Cappan, Fabrice Nyiri and Joël Guidon and was released on March 13, 2008, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais, then in the full France in April, under Nord-Way Productions label.

It was surprisingly a hit in France, probably through the film success: it entered the SNEP singles chart at number nine on 5 April 2008, with 2,475 sales,[1] then jumped directly to number one, selling 7,643 units this week,[2] then dropped slowly, totaling nine weeks in the top ten, 23 weeks in the top 50 and 38 weeks on the chart.[3] In Belgium (Wallonia), the song debuted on the chart on 24 May 2008, peaked at number seven in its fourth week and remained on the chart for 12 weeks.[4]

Ch'ti DJ toured in France to promote his song,[5] particularly devoted to the discothèques. The song is characterized by minimal lyrics with phrases taken from the film, and house and rap sonorities inspired by the tecktonik.[6] The song was generally well received by the media, although the commercial aspect of the single was deemed obvious.[7] It was also stated by Ozap that the song was "a little opportunist".[1]
