Philippe Lafontaine is a Belgian singer and composer.
Born in Gosselles, Belgium, he attended a Jesuit college before leaving at the age of 17 to pursue a career in music. His first successes came from the writing and recording of jingles for television commercials, including Stella Artois and Coca-Cola.
Throughout the 1980s he joined the musical comedy Brel en mille temps, touring in Dakar and Moscow, and then Leningrad and Saint Petersburg. Lafontaine released three albums. The song "Coeur de Loup" was his first big hit and launched his career once and for all in Europe. The song garnered many awards in Belgium, France and Quebec. His lyrics were also known for including double entendres.
