Michel'le Toussant, better known as Michel'le, is an American R&B singer-songwriter known for her squeaky, childlike speaking voice, which is a startling contrast to her strong vocals.
Toussant is an African-American R&B vocalist with Louisiana Creole heritage. She is known for her squeaky, childlike speaking voice which is a startling contrast to her strong singing vocals. Michel'le was originally the featured female vocalist on World Class Wreckin' Cru's 1987 single "Turn Off the Lights".
Michel'le was signed to Eazy-E's Ruthless Records. In 1989, she released her self-titled debut album, produced entirely by then-boyfriend Dr. Dre. The album contained "No More Lies" and the hit singles "Nicety" and "Something in My Heart." Michel'le sold 2.7 million copies worldwide.
During the Suge Knight shakedown incident, Eazy was forced to sign over Dr. Dre, The D.O.C. and Michel'le. In 1998, she released her second album Hung Jury on Death Row Records but it garnered little attention and no hit records. Following Dr. Dre’s departure from Death Row Records, Michel’le and Dr. Dre parted ways.
Her most recent music was a contribution to the Dysfunktional Family soundtrack in 2003. She has since confirmed through several media outlets that she’s been working on new material and looking for a label for her third album.
A trailer video for Michel'le's brand new single "Freedom To Love" can be seen on YouTube.
Currently, Michel'le is part of the cast of TV One's R&B Divas LA. Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
