A Best Of so soon after "Natasha St-Pier"? She and Tina are label mates and what do you know, Tina released "Le Best & Le Meilleur" right after "7 Vies". The music climate for artists such as Natasha and Tina is becoming increasingly cold. I hate today's music. It's empty. It's void of raw emotion and passion. It really pisses me off that such great talents like Nat have to compete with bullshit 'artists' like Black Eyed Peas and Britney. It's a sad state of affairs.
I really hope that this doesn't mean an end of sorts. Natasha's voice is so beautiful, serene, and soft on the ears. I hope that after the Best Of, we are once again treated to a new full album by Natasha. She's simply amazing and such a sweet person.

I agree with you Shavon. I'm getting more and more disgusted with the "popular" music, because of that I find it that much more to support the artists I love. Natasha, Lara, Tina, Deborah Cox, Delta Goodrem, Cindy Morgan, and Epica because I want them to keep making music. Lately the music I have been discovered is older music of artists that never really broke through here, but I've heard of word of mouth from others. (Lucie Silvas, Epica, Charon, Within Temptation)
I'm hoping this just means a change of direction for Natasha, rather than a loss of a record deal. (Sometimes artists release Greatest Hits albums to separate parts of their careers; LeAnn Rimes did this.) I not only love Natasha's voice but also think she has great musical instincts.
