Paris Hilton has been in the studio with Afrojack working on tracks for her upcoming album.
She is also working with other “really dope DJs” in an attempt to fuse pop and house. The new Paris Hilton album should be out in 2011.
This unnamed release will be Hilton’s second studio album. Her first was Paris, released in 2006, featuring the popular reggae-pop influenced “Stars Are Blind.”
The Paris Hilton and Afrojack collaboration highlights a continuing trend of pop, hip hop, and other mainstream genres exploring the possibilities of electronic dance music. This has been evident as artists like Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Katy Perry, and Bruno Mars continue to blossom and produce dance floor hits.
Paris Hilton’s experience with house DJs goes beyond Afrojack –
The hotel heiress was involved in an incident with Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello at the 2009 Winter Music Conference in Miami:
Hilton made a request, Steve refused, she got mad.
Steve’s bodyguard had to forcefully remove Hilton and her posse from the DJ booth, creating much buzz via social media.
According to Hilton, Angello’s music, “was not even danceable and was frankly giving me a migraine” She claims she wanted him to spin Bob Sinclair or Daft Punk. Angello stated that Hilton repeatedly asked him to play hip hop and was getting on his nerves.
Perhaps now Paris realizes that if she wants a career in music she’ll need a lot of Afrojack, Dutch House and Autotune!
