Singer Julie Budet (known now as Yelle) and producer GrandMarnier AKA Jean Francois Perrier, began making music together back in 2005 under the name “YEL” which stood for “You Enjoy Life”. The name was soon feminized to YELLE because a Belgian band already went by that name. That same year, they got lots of buzz on MySpace after they posted a song called ‘Short Dick Cuizi’ (which later became ‘Je Veux Te Voir’). The following year, YELLE began recording their debut album titled ‘Pop Up’ and brought producer Tepr into the mix. The French only album was released in 2007 and gained attention throughout the world.
