About Yannick Noah

While much of the globe remembers Yannick Noah as the dreadlocked tennis champion who claimed the 1983 French Open title, in French-speaking Europe he is also a major pop music star, particularly in his native France. Of French and Cameroonian parentage, he launched his recording career with the 1990 dance-pop single "Saga Africa," which reached number two in his home country. Noah's third full-length, 2000's Yannick Noah, marked his debut at number one in France, a position he would reclaim several more times. Meanwhile, in 2005, he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Noah had his fifth number one with 2012's Hommage, a tribute to Bob Marley. Still charting nearly 30 years after his recording debut, his 12th long-player, Bonheur Indigo, reached number five in 2019. ~ Marcy Donelson
