20 years ago, French singer Alizée released her debut single Moi... Lolita after appearing on the talent show Graines de star the previous year. She was seen by Mylène Farmer, one of the most successful recording artists of France, who approached her and selected her to partake in the project she had along with Laurent Boutonnat, her songwriter partner. The single went #1 in Italy and Spain, and became a Top 10 hit in many European charts like Belgium, France, Netherlands, Austria, Germany, and even the UK, where it peaked at #9, a rarity for a foreign-language song. When her follow-up single L'Alizé hit #1 in France, Moi... Lolita was still on the chart at #3. Her debut album, Gourmandises, would be released on November of that same year. Her career has had many ups and downs, but I think if there's any French fans in here, they will be able to shed more light on it. This is one of her latest appearances, which happened earlier this year, a few months after giving birth to her second baby.
I'm like hours late but yesterday Alizée's debut album Gourmandises was released in France! "The album, written by Farmer and composed by Boutonnat, sold over 788,000 copies in France – it reached Platinum status in just three months. In 2001, the album was launched internationally and Alizée became the highest-selling female French singer ever. The album went on to sell over two million copies worldwide." Here is @PokemonSpears's thread for Moi...Lolita's anniversary earlier this year:
