Biography

Saint-Brieuc, France (2005 – present)

Yelle is Julie Budet, a French singer from the town of Saint-Brieuc, France, who started performing in 2005. She rose to fame on MySpace when she posted a song titled “Short Dick Cuizi”, dissing Cuizinier, a member of the Parisian hip-hop group TTC.

With producer and close friend GrandMarnier, Yelle has recorded a debut album Pop-Up, after her hit single “Je Veux Te Voir” (a finalised version of “Short Dick Cuizi”). The song, which samples the bassline from 20 Fingers’ 1994 club hit Short Dick Man, received heavy airplay on MTV. She was also featured on Fatal Bazooka’s song “Parle à ma main” in 2007. In February 2008 she performed the track “À cause des Garçons” on the BBC Three series “Lily Allen and Friends”. The series claimed that this was her first appearance on UK television. She was MTV’s ‘Artist of the Week’ for the week of 24th March-30th March 2008, appearing during adverts.

Yelle’s second single “A Cause Des Garçons/ACDG” is a cover song from an homonym 80’s band. A remixed version of the track by Riot in Belgium was featured on the soundtrack of Electronic Arts’ computer game; Need for Speed: ProStreet. The song was also used as the opening song for the Moschino Spring Summer 2008 runway show

As of 2008, it is also featured in an advert being broadcast in Quebec for Telus, a Canadian telecommucations company and the 24th March episode of ‘The Hills’.
