"Tu trouveras" (English translation: "You Will Find") is the name of a 2002 song recorded by the Canadian singer Natasha St-Pier, composed by Pascal Obispo and written by Lionel Florence.

It was released as the first single from her third album, De l'amour le mieux, on which it features as first track. The song became a top three hit in France and Belgium (Wallonia) and was much aired on radio, remaining to date St-Pier's most successful single in terms of sales.

Song information[edit]

The music was written by famous composer Lionel Florence, and composed by French singer Pascal Obispo who also participated in the production of the song. It deals with a love relationship in which St-Pier admits her mistakes and her weaknesses. The words "Tu trouveras", which are sung in the refrain, are performed by Pascal Obispo, and therefore the song is generally considered as a duet, even though almost all of the lyrics are sung by Natasha St.-Pier. They performed the song in many French TV programs.

The song features on many French compilations, such as Les Plus Belles Ballades, Les Plus Beaux Duos, Non Stop Hits 4, Les Plus Belles Voix, vol. 1, Hitbox 2002 Best of, vol. 4 and Hit de diamant.

Christophe Maé covered the song included in a medley named "Mister Restos 2008" on Les Enfoirés' 2008 album Le Secret des Enfoirés.
