It seems like YMCMB signs anybody to their label because today, they signed Paris Hilton.
According to Showbiz 411, Paris broke the news at a party in Cannes that she would be working on a new album and hinted that she would be working with Drake and Nicki Minaj on a few tracks. Hilton also claims Dutch house producer Afrojack is helping produce music for her, which is an interesting tidbit given that the two were previously rumored to be dating. Dating rumors are false but the work they’ve worked on is not.
Just for those that didn’t know – this will be Paris’ second album. Her debut album self titled “Paris” hit the stores in 2006, reaching the top 10 of the Billboard albums chart. This second album will be a different route than her first, being strictly house music.
Paris has been keeping busy lately. She’s appeared in Rich Gang’s music video for “Tapout” alongside another YMCMB signee, Christina Milian, dropped her first track with Lil’ Wayne titled “Last Night”, and has been working a few DJ gigs in clubs. Although her DJ skills are lacking as she needed a tech to come assist her during a set, crowds usually just like watching her dance around to her own mixes.
Rumors are that her album is set to be released sometime in the summer under Young Money and will feature a good handful of her labelmates.
Hip Hop meets House? Who ever saw this coming?
