"Jeune Demoiselle"

"La Boulette" is the first single from Dans ma bulle, an album by Diam's released on 21 February 2006. La Boulette debuted at number 3 on the French music charts and stayed number one for three consecutive weeks. Containing numerous references to fellatio, incest and violence, some consider the lyrics to be somewhat vulgar if unfamiliar with the genre's conventions. In 2007, "La Boulette" won a NRJ Music Awards in the category 'Francophone song of the year'. As of July 2014, it was the 88th best-selling single of the 21st century in France, with 323,000 units sold.[1]
