Paris Hilton, the former reality TV star and socialite, has reportedly signed with Lil Wayne‘s music label Cash Money Records.

The heiress to the Hilton hotel empire broke the news during the Cannes film festival and according to her, the album won’t be hip-hop or R&B.

“This is a lot different from my first album,” Hilton told Showbiz 411. “It’s really going to be house music.”

Yes, Paris did indeed have a first album. Back in 2006, she released Paris, a pop album that did make waves on the Billboard charts, but received mostly negative reviews.

In the past few years, Cash Money has ventured out to find music talent outside of its traditional hip-hop wheelhouse. British pop singer Jay Sean and rocker Kevin Cossum have been bankable signees underneath the Cash Money imprint, but embracing Hilton, who’s been caught on camera using the n-word, may backfire.
