Her fame can be attributed to producer, songwriter and composer Johnny Williams (grandson of 'musette' accordion star André Verchuren) and her father manager Dominique Pester (a former studio manager at French radio station RTL). She is sometimes also referred to as the French version of Britney Spears. Lorie is a multi-platinum singer who has sold over eight million albums and singles worldwide as of December 2007. Her first studio album Près de toi was certified triple platinum in France and she followed it with five other certified albums. It was expected that Lorie would start working on a new album, the follow-up to her 2007 record 2Lor en moi?
