Cash Money Records CEO Birdman is still confident in his recent signing of reality star Paris Hilton and promised the world would be surprised by how talented the blonde bombshell is on the microphone.
Although slim with details, Baby said Hilton already has some solid tunes stashed away.
“Honestly, I don’t think people know how talented Paris is. I just left from her house she was playin’ me some music and we were meeting,” the Cash Money CEO told MTV News last month, when taking a break from a Los Angeles recording session where he was finalizing his upcoming Rich Gang album. “She got a record we’re about to come out with and she’s very talented. You know she’s already somethin’ special as an entrepreneur and everything that she do,” he said. “But on the music side, I’m super excited. We all — me, Wayne, everybody — we listened to her music and she got some hits.” (MTV)
Back in May, Hilton broke the major news and said she is going through Cash Money to drop her sophomore solo album.
But the big news: this nightfly who is really a successful businesswoman is recording her second album of music right now. It will be issued by CashMoney Records and will feature many hip hop acts such as Lil Wayne. Paris told me Afrojack is producing it, and she hopes to have it out this summer. The album release will be preceded by Paris doing a residency playing records (digital tracks) this summer in Ibiza, Spain-which also happens to be the hometown of her eleven years younger male model boyfriend named River. “This is a lot different than my first album,” Paris told me. “It’s really going to be house music.” (Showbiz 411)
