Biography

French singer Chimène, whose family were originally from Algeria, grew up in the south-west of France, having moved there when she was a young child. Although she was a shy child, she took part in singing competitions from the age of six and was always much more confident on stage. She studied agriculture, but her sister Déborah encouraged her to pursue a career in singing and enter 'French Pop Stars' in 2002. Although she didn't make it to the final, she was signed by AZ Records as a result of her performances on the show.

Chimène released her debut single 'Entre Nous' in 2003, the title track from her album released in the same year. This was an immediate success, reaching number one in the French Singles Chart, number four in Belgium and number five in Switzerland. Two other singles were released from the album 'Entre Nous', 'Je Vais Te Chercher' reaching number 16, and 'Si J'avais Su T'aimer' number 21. She released her second album in 2004 'Dis-Moi Que Tu M'aimes' which reached number one in the French Albums Chart. Five singles were released from this album; the best performing were 'Le Jour D'aprè' in 2004 which reached number seven and 'Je Viens Du Sud' in 2005 which reached number two.

In 2006, Chimène released two albums, 'Live à l'Olympia' and 'Le Miroir' which reached numbers two and three respectively in the French Albums Chart. In 2010, 'Laisse-Les Dire' followed which reached number four. A sixth album 'Gospel & Soul' in 2011 included a duet with Billy Paul of a cover of 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' and this reached number seven in the French Albums Chart. Her seventh album 'Au-Del à Des Maux' in 2015 reached number six. In 2018, Chimène released the single 'Là-Haut', and with this single entered the French competition 'Destination Eurovision' in 2019 in an attempt to represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest. She came third in the competition.
