The latest update on Paris Hilton‘s forthcoming musical project comes with a shoulder shrug and a well-deserved sigh of relief. As previously reported, Hilton has been signed to Cash Money Records and is working on a house music album. Met with cold reception from disturbed dance music fans, Hilton’s upcoming album won’t be house music in the traditional sense, but rather her debut will be a blend of commercial music that brings electro, pop, and dance together for an attempt at Top 40 relevance. In a recent statement, Hilton claims that her album is almost finished and that Lil Wayne will be guest featured. She goes on to describe the album’s dance influence in layman’s terms.
“I’m in the studio and almost finished with the album, and yeah, they’re just finishing up all the paperwork and there will be an announcement soon. But I’m so excited. I think they’ve created an amazing brand. Lil Wayne and some other surprise guests will be on the album, and it’s going to be so sick. It’s an electropop album with some dance-y songs.”
As her affiliation with Afrojack has dwindled, Hilton seems to be stepping on less toes in the dance music community under the jurisdiction of Lil’ Wayne. An “electropop” album with “dance-y songs” comes less offensive than her previously “house music album” declaration and appears to be shaping up to be a mere attempt at radio success with the increasingly electro-influenced formula.

Matt and Chris Stafford have taken their production talents straight through mainstream culture and into the hands of Lil Wayne. Their latest production, “Hello,” features a verse from Wayne and a chorus from singer Christina Milian for a genre-defying commercial record. This week, Cash Money Records has released the track’s remix package with stellar renditions from Dannic, Morten Breum, and Henrix – who is giving away his take for free – among others.
Australian duo, the Stafford Brothers, have already had their own reality TV show and now are signing to hip-hop mogul Birdman’s Cash Money Records. This isn’t the first time we have seen a cross over between electronic and hip-hop artists, as Sander Van Doorn joined Roc Nation just a few months ago. The Stafford Brothers are not wasting any time and are already collaborating with Lil Wayne and Christina Milian on “Hello.” You can listen to a preview of “Hello” past the break, and the track will be out soon on Cash Money Records.
David Guetta’s Nothing But The Beat album is full of radio gems, and one that instantly took to the airwaves was the Chris Brown and Lil’ Wayne assisted “I Can Only Imagine.” Not only did the three superstars unite to produce the track, but they came together again to perform it live at the Grammy Awards. While the single has Top 40 listeners singing along in their cars, it has not had the same effect on Guetta’s house-favoring fans — yet, at least.
Following in the footsteps of Calvin Harris (who just remixed his own pop collaboration with Ne-Yo, “Let’s Go”), the tremendous producer/DJ has also remixed his own track in collaboration with Daddy’s Groove, the Italian trio that also remixed “Where Them Girls At.” The remix differs extremely from the original, removing Lil Wayne’s verse completely and swapping the uplifting piano that is beloved on the radio with high-energy electro that can be appreciated on the dance floor. The new and improved rendition of “I Can Only Imagine” is now available on Beatport via What A Music.
