Pochette Surprise (Surprise Package) is the first album by singer Jordy. When it was released in France in 1992, he was only four years old. Its first single "Dur dur d'être bébé!" charted at #1 for 15 weeks, making Jordy the youngest recording artist to ever reach #1. It was followed by "Alison" which was also number one for five weeks, then by "Les Boules", which was much less successful (#13).

The album debuted at #7 on 9 December 1992 on the SNEP Albums Chart and had a peak at number two for three non consecutive weeks. It totaled 23 weeks in the top ten and 48 weeks in the top 50. In 1993, the album achieved 2 x Platinum status for over 600,000 copies sold.
