Alizée was discovered by Mylène Farmer, following her winning performance in the talent show, Graines de Star in 1999. While collaborating with Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat, Alizée released two albums, both of which were hits inside and outside of France.
Alizée entered the music business in 2000. She has since released four studio albums, the first two of which were composed by Laurent Boutonnat and written by Mylène Farmer. Her first album was Gourmandises, which received Platinum certification within three months of release. After its international launch in 2001, Gourmandises was a success both in France and abroad, earning Alizée 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. Gourmandises was followed by a second studio album, Mes Courants Électriques, in 2003. Following its release, Alizée toured during the fall of 2003, performing in 43 concerts throughout France, Belgium and Switzerland.
Alizée married fellow French singer Jérémy Chatelain in late 2003. Following her marriage, she took a hiatus from singing before returning with a new album, Psychédélices, on 3 December 2007. Her fourth album titled Une Enfant Du Siècle was released on 29 March 2010.
In early 2011 she published her participation in a new album of Alain Chamfort and announced plans for a back to the roots studio album for spring 2012.
