Miami rapper Rick Ross recently addressed supermodel Jessica Gomes helping his brand blow up with the signature “Maybach Music” line attached to a majority of his hit records.
Ricky Rozay admitted she had no idea how big the phrase would become after laying it down four years ago.
“She’s actually from, [laughs], she’s actually an overseas model,” Ross said referring to Jessica Gomes. “She just showed a lot of love and let her shine. I just think she ain’t know how big it was going to get at the time. You know what I’m saying? But what was dope was that was the intro to the very first ‘Maybach Music’ featuring me and Jay-Z. It just meant a lot and I felt I should name my label after that movement and that quality and sound and that’s what we did and here we are, baby!” (“Big Boy’s Neighborhood”)
Last January, Gomes explained how she got involved on Ross’ “Maybach Music” record.
“Right, Jay-Z and Rick Ross. It was at the beginning of the [‘Maybach Music’] track. It was another girl talking and then she says, ‘What is this?’ and I say ‘It’s Maybach music’ and then we both say ‘I like this Maybach music.’ And we both go ‘Sweet,'” she explained in an interview. “We were just hanging out with friends in the studio and then it just happened. We got behind the mic, started talking and that was it, really. They decided to put it in their song and nothing came about. But now everyone’s using my part where I say “Maybach Music.” Even A-Trak, who’s a friend of mine, the DJ, asked ‘Have you heard this song?’ And I said ‘No.'” (Global Grind)
Despite being on tons of records, Gomes calmed she had not yet to received compensation for the voiceovers.
“Really! I need to be getting paid for these songs,” Gomes added when told she has likely been used in 50 songs. “[Am I getting paid?] No! [Should I?] Now I do. Because it’s hot and it’s out there. [Have I talked to Ross about the voiceover?] No. Not at all. I haven’t had a conversation with any of them about it.” (Global Grind)
The bombshell previously hopped on Twitter and confirmed she is the voice behind “Maybach Music.”
For years, we’ve been wondering who the extremely hot-sounding woman behind this vocal is and it turns out that she is, in fact, extremely hot. It’s Australian supermodel Jessica Gomes. The same chick who appeared on our cover in 2007, Diddy’s Unforgivable commercial. “Maybach Music. Ha,” she tweeted. That tweet is all the confirmation we have that Jessica’s vocals are on the drop, but she has retweeted fans who call her the “Maybach Music lady,” so we’ll take that as a yes. (Complex)
