Alizee Jacotey is a French singer. Born in Ajaccio, Corsica, she ;es by the stage name Alizee — the feminine form of alize, the trade wind. She was discovered by Mylene Farmer, following her winning performance in the talent show, Graines de Star, in 1999. While collaborating with Mylene Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat, Alizee came up with two albums — both of which were hits inside and outside of France.
Alizee entered the music business in the year 2000. She had released two studio albums, composed by Laurent Boutonnat and written by Mylène Farmer. Her first album was ;urmandises, which received Platinum certification within three months of release. ;urmandises was a success both in France and abroad — after it had its international launch in 2001 — earning Alizee the distinction of being the highest selling female French singer in 2001. The album featured her most successful single "Moi... Lolita" which reached number one in several countries in Europe and East Asia. The marketing campaign around the single affixed Alizee's image as that of a seductive lolita. ;urmandises was followed by a second studio album, Mes Courants Electriques in 2003, which was also quite successful, though not as big a hit as Alizee's debut album. Following its release, Alizee toured France during the fall of 2003, performing in 43 concerts throughout France, along with Belgium and Switzerland.
