Paris Hilton has found a new home, and some of her roommates include Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. The heiress/singer/”Bling Ring” actress has reportedly signed with Cash Money Records.
Hilton broke the news to Showbiz 411, adding that she hopes to have her follow-up to 2006’s self-titled debut out by summer. She added it will feature a number of hip-hop acts, including Weezy, and production from EDM superstar Afrojack. “This is a lot different than my first album,” Paris told the site. “It’s really going to be house music.”
Reps for Cash Money confirmed that Hilton is onboard with the label, while Hilton’s rep said nothing is set in stone: “Paris Hilton is in talks with a number of record labels right now but we can’t confirm anything. When a deal is finalized we will make an official announcement.”
Hilton has been rolling with the Cash Money crew for a while now. Last year, she released a song with Wayne, “Last Night,” and he was even on hand at her birthday bash back in March. In May, she was also recruited to cameo in the Rich Gang’s video for “Tapout,” alongside Cash Money all-stars Wayne, Birdman, Mack Maine and Nicki Minaj.
Birdman opened up to “RapFix” about the relationships the label has cultivated over the years. And while he never brought up this reported deal with the hotel heiress, it seemed clear he’s into working with all kinds of artists.
“We have other artists like Future, who is not signed to us but a part of us. French, Ross, Meek and all these [guys] are friends that we rock with and call on,” Birdman promised. “A lot of business we do don’t necessarily have to be about money, it’s about relationships and this is about people that we have relationships with.”
Hilton’s been long teasing the sophomore effort. She shared last year she wanted to have new music out in mid-2012 , but it never happened. It seems fans will have to wait a little longer — until the summer of 2013 — to hear what she’s previously described as “electropop music.”
“I think a lot of people don’t know that music is my passion since I was a little girl,” the “Stars Are Blind” singer told MTV News last year. “I’m very musically talented. This is more my thing [musically on this album], more of a club scene, more dance.”
