There is a good YouTube channel that does French listening activities. Check it out - Frenchpod101. What exam board are you doing by the way?

I quite like these guys:

M. Pokora
Shy'm
Tal
Indila

Another great way to improve your listening is to watch films/TV shows. I recommend "Une affaire d'etat" (film). A good technique is to watch it with subtitles the very first time to make sure that you fully understand what's going on. Then a few days later watch it without the subtitles. Use your knowledge of the context (gained from the first viewing) to help you.

Also, subscribe to the "Journal en français facile" podcast. It's ten minutes a day and it covers current affairs. Their accents aren't too complicated and they speak at a reasonable speed.

My advanced higher French is on the 16th :/ I really like stromae. Loads of people have mentioned him but he's a Belgian musician of Rwandan descent and his music is pretty popular in France today. He's got some pretty incredible music videos too and his music is very upbeat and modern. My personal favourites are "papaoutai" and "tous les mêmes". Beware though! His songs are ridiculously catchy
