Earlier this year, Paris Hilton inked a deal with Cash Money Records, much to the amazement of everyone not named Birdman and Lil Wayne, who praised the heiress/musician's hustle ... and, more importantly, her music.
"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," Birdman told MTV News. "But on the music side, I'm super excited. We all — me, Wayne, everybody — we listened to her music and she got some hits."
And now, after wrapping a month-long DJ residency at Ibiza hotspot Amnesia, Hilton is getting ready to show us her hits ... as she took to Twitter to announce the release date for her first Cash Money single: "Good Time," which features Weezy and is due on October 1.
And, as Hilton explained to MTV News, though it's been a while — more than seven years, to be exact — since she released an album, she's more than ready to prove the naysayers wrong ... not to mention make her Cash Money family proud. And "Good Time" is the just the beginning.
"Music has always been a big passion of mine, but I've just been so busy with everything else. But I've recorded some incredible songs, EDM-influenced, electro-pop, and working with very talented producers," Hilton said. "The first single is called 'Good Time,' I recorded that with Lil Wayne. I'm so excited to be signed with Cash Money ... Working with Birdman and Slim, they're amazing guys, and I'm really happy to be a part of the Cash Money family."
And as for the "Good Time" video (which Hilton's been teasing on Twitter) well, as you can probably gather from the song's title alone, it's not going to be some dark and dour affair. Instead, to borrow one of Hilton's former catchphrases, it'll be "Hot."
"The video is epic, it's so sexy and so much fun, I had so much fun shooting it; it's like a crazy, insane pool party, plus so many other beautiful scenes," she explained. "Robin Antin did the choreography for it ... it's so colorful, very David LaChappelle-inspired, I'm so proud of it. I can't wait for everyone to see it."
