The album's songs, mainly written by himself, began to attract controversy, with the press eventually boycotting some of them.
This led to a decline in sales, culminating in personal problems.

The album Rester vrai marked the beginning of his career as a performer only.
Bienvenue chez moi, a semi-compilation released in 1995, was a smash success.

"Savoir aimer" turned out to be an immediate success.In 1999, Pagny released an album of cover versions of his old song, Recréation.
From "Môme Julie" to "Antisocial", he mixed musical styles and dabbled with techno arrangements.Pagny then alternated studios and cover albums (at least in part) and regularly changed his look.

He followed that with 2, an album composed of duets released in 2001.
In 2003, he returned with Ailleurs land, whose first single, "Ma Liberté de penser", was composed by Pascal Obispo and Lionel Florence and deals with Pagny's problems with the French treasury.
