Calling all francophile music lovers: recommendations for modern french language songs.

I am continuing a nearly endless and many year long quest to improve my French.
It occurred to me that I listen to a lot of music and I could use French songs to learn French (if I liked the songs).
My tastes are quite varied. The only French language music I listen to is Khaled, Rachid Taha (obviously not all in French) and Camille, Emilie Simon and a little of Olivia Ruiz (but the only ones of those I really like are Khaled and Camille). That is all that is in my currently very sparse French language playlist. I also love Phoenix, but though they are French, I've never heard any French language music by them.
I do, however, listen to a very wide range of musical styles however and am very open to very different stuff stylistically.
What I want is:
1. Relatively modern music (last 10 - 20 years) or absolute classics from older years.
2. Preferably available on Spotify (I listen to music almost exclusively through Spotify, and my playlist is in Spotify). Also, the great ListDJ extension for Spotify lets me easily access the lyrics for these songs without having to search for them.
Thanks a lot!
