René-Charles Angelil surprises Mom Céline Dion with #1 Rap and R’n’B songs
René-Charles Angelil surprises Mom Céline Dion with #1 Rap and R’n’B songs – The unsuspected rapper, René-Charles Angelil, kept the existence of his new career a total secret until the songs hit the top of SoundCloud’s Canadian R&B Charts. The famous singer had no idea he had an interest in pursuing a musical career.
Angelil says in a Montreal Gazette interview, that when he finally told his mom, Céline Dion, about his rap career as Big Tip, ‘‘It was kind of a weird conversation : ‘Ma, I’m No. 1 and No. 2 on the charts right now…. ‘I played it to her for the first time, I just felt like keeping it on the low, But she loved it.‘‘She was kind of stunned at first, because she’d never heard anything from me’. She was like: ‘ Why didn’t you tell me first?’‘
The 17-Year-old rapper, however, decided to keep his musical interests silent and hidden from one of the worlds most celebrated singers, claiming that ‘’I wanted to prove to myself that I’m able to do it. Not just Because my mom is who my mom is. At the end of the day, that’s what matter to me the most: to make a name for myself!!’.
Showing a lot character and commitment by deciding not to use one of Quebecs most iconic family networks out of principle.
The release of the songs apparently led to some unusual conversation at home and he has already expressed in a tweet that the pressures of sudden fame were getting to him.

Renée-Charles uploaded five songs, including two Covers paying tribute to the Weeknd, an artist he highly regards.
“Catwalks (Sidewalks Remix)” and “Loft Music Remix,” which hit number 1 and 2 on SoundCloud’s ‘’Canadian R&B & Soul New & Hot” charts respectively, include original auto-biographical lyrics. Rapping about what it’s like to grow up under famous parents, with opening lines like ” [he] ran out of tears when I was 16.’’
The fourth track entitled ‘’The apple’’, which he wrote in 15 min and recorded in 45, is directed towards his haters and addresses those who “said I was too generic” and that “I ain’t find my style yet,” by including explicit rap lines such as: ”Y’all can go suck a dick” and ”the apple don’t fall far from the tree, so this is god sent”
Angélil says he wants to do a full-length album, for which he’d consider working with a major label, and he won’t rule out the possibility of recording with his famous mom at some point.
