Yelle (a feminised acronym of "You enjoy life") is a French singer from the town of Saint-Brieuc, Bretagne. 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 finalized 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.
As of October 2007, she is opening for Mika during his European tour. In February 2008 she performed the track "A cause des Garçons" on the BBC Three show "Lily Allen and Friends". The show claimed that this was her first appearance on UK television. She's MTV's 'Artist of the Week' for the week of March 24th-30th, 2008, appearing during commercials.
