"Papaoutai" (Papa où t'es, meaning "Dad, where are you?") is a song written and performed by Belgian singer Stromae. The song was released as a Digital download in Belgium on May 13, 2013 as the lead single from his second studio album Racine Carrée (2013). The song hit the number 1 spot in Belgium and France. A remix of the song featuring Angel Haze also appears on the album. The music video to accompany the release of "Papaoutai" was first released on YouTube on June 6, 2013 at a total length of three minutes and fifty-three seconds.
"Papaoutai" is the shorthand and child to write in French "Papa, où t'es" meaning "Dad, where are you". This story is undoubtedly autobiographical, as Paul Van Haver (real name of the singer) has said in interviews that he has never known his father.
