Paris Hilton wants to get you “High Off My Love.” That’s why the hotel heiress is debuting her latest Cash Money Records track at South Beach’s Wall Lounge this week.
Featuring a verse from CM label boss Birdman himself, “High Off My Love” is the sex tape star turned reality TV princess turned pop-star DJ’s first release of 2015.
“Hilton sings over the electro-pop record, dropping signature phrases like ‘time to kill it’ and ‘let’s turn it up,’ and Birdman swoops in to close things out with some bars,” the official press releases reads, hyping the socialite’s new single.
And though the music video looks more like the sequel to One Night in Paris, Hilton says the clip was inspired by Madonna’s 1990 hit, “Justify My Love.”
“The song [‘High Off my Love'] is very sexy and sexual,” Hilton told Cosmopolitan magazine last year. “It's about love and how it makes me feel high. I wanted the video to be really sexy and fun.”
The starlet later added that the idea for the dominatrix-themed clip was further inspired by the lite-S&M book series, Fifty Shades of Grey .
Although there’s no comparing Madonna with Hilton, “High Off My Love,” produced by Cash Money’s Mr. Beatz, peaked at number one on Billboard’s Twitter Real-Time Chart after its release last month. And now the music video has over one million hits on YouTube.
From The Simple Life to a club near you, the socialite announced the beginning of her career as DJ Paris Hilton in 2012 when she realized that almost anyone can become a DJ.
The world hoped it was the prank of the century, but Hilton signed to Cash Money Records the following year, making her EDM debut with Lil Wayne on “Good Time.”
Of course, it’s been two years since that song. And we were getting worried DJ Paris might never apply her inimitable pop-dance touch to music again.
But finally, she’s back. Just as “sexy and sexual” as ever.
