I'm trying to identify an album that came out around 1998-2005, by a French or perhaps French-Canadian woman. I would describe the genre as "Lounge" or "Jazz".

The singing was unconventional - it was kind of whispering, hoarse, lusty, and very close to the microphone. It reminded me of "Je T'aime (Moi Non Plus)"

I think that the hit from the album started with either the sound of high heels clicking on the floor, or someone snapping their fingers.

It would have gotten airplay on listener-supported and university radio stations. I heard it being used as Muzak in Chapters, Canada's large bookstore chain at the time.

  • Shot in the dark here, but maybe "Jazzamor" ? Date matches, and the type of singing a bit too. Except it has electronics in it and not french (german I think), but sings in English mostly. – Karolis Koncevičius Aug 1 '20 at 12:48
  • It was definitely French, I'm afraid. – AshleyZ Aug 13 '20 at 4:28
