Can someone please tell me what kind of French this is? Is it a creole language? Or is it
a French dialect? Is it comprehensible to the average French native speaker?

It seems to me to be a kind of melting pot of different language. There are French words
in the lyrics, as well as English words (and I recognize some Spanish or Italian words).
But most words have nothing to do with French. It's just sounds put together. I don't see
any meaning.
The youtube video is actually totally impossible to understand, except for a word or two
in French

Ok, thanks for letting me know. The artist (well one of them) is from Guadaloupe so I
guess it is some sort of creole. I was wondering if a French person could make sense of
the lyrics.

Google translate detects Haitian creole on a few lines I test.
