What's new in French music? Some suggestions.

In chanson:
Camille - Ilo veyou (Ilo Veyou, 2011)

Amusing and sensitive songs very well written. Oldelaf is the guy who wrote Le café.
Oldelaf - Comme je peux (Le Monde est beau, 2011)

Luce - J'me fume (Première phalange, 2011)

A French reggae hit:
Danakyl - Quitter Paname (Dialogue de sourd, 2011)

And two big hits:

Booba, gave to French rap some of his masterpieces (Mauvais Oeil, Panthéon, Temps Mort). His new songs are not as good unfortunately, but still much better than most of French rap.
Booba - Scarface (Autopsie vol 4, 2011)

Not my kind of music, but one of the biggest 2011'shit. A mix between dancehall and varieté.
Colonel Reyel - Aurélie

Kavinsky is driving

The main song from the OST of the great movie Drive is a big hit in France right now. Drive may looks like an american movie but is also quite European: the director is Danish, and the OST has been composed by a French musician: Kavinsky. Notice that his EP Nightcall has been produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (member of the Daft punk).
