Lomepal’s album Jeannine is certified Diamond

Released in December 2018, Jeannine, Lomepal’s second album, has passed the threshold of 500 000 albums sold. A Diamond certification is a welcome reward for the efforts of Antoine Valentinelli, the artist, but also for Grand Musique Management and the IDOL team.

The track record is impeccable: hundreds of thousands of album solds, sold out tours, 2 nominations at the Victoires de la Musique (France’s Grammy proxy), and Gold certifications in Switzerland and Belgium. Lauded by the press, Lomepal has established himself over the past few years as an artistic reference in the French musical landscape.

Since 2017, with the release of his first album Flip, IDOL has assisted Grand Musique Management in the project’s development, offering a comprehensive range of services including worldwide digital and physical distribution, strategic consulting, offline and online marketing, and more.

The team, composed of Antoine i.e. the artist-entrepreneur, Grand Musique Management and IDOL, capitalized on the synergy of their longtime relationship to leverage their financial means and bring the project as far as it deserved.
