Michel'le Toussaint(born 1970) is an R&B vocalist of Louisiana Creole heritage. She is known for her squeaky, child-like speaking voice which is a startling contrast to her strong vocals. The singer was originally signed to Eazy-E's Ruthless Records. In 1989, she released Michel'le. Her self-titled debut album was entirely produced by then boyfriend Dr. Dre. The album contained "No More Lies" and the hit singles "Nicety" and "Something in My Heart." Michel'le sold 1.5 million copies. She is imitated and generally made fun of on Tim Dog's infamous song, "Fuck Compton". Michel'le was the featured female vocalist on World Class Wreckin' Cru's 1988 single "Turn Off the Lights".
In 1998, she released her second album "Hung Jury" 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. Michel’le had one child—Marcel—with Dr. Dre, and another—Bailei—with Suge Knight. Soon after Bailei's birth, her relationship with Knight ended.
Her most recent music was 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.
