I said I wouldn't do it. I said to myself. I'm not going to blog about Paris Hilton's new song. And, to be fair I've waited since May 15th, which was over a month ago at this point. I just couldn't resist talking about all the bondage and sexiness on display in “High Off My Love”. Paris Hilton is queen to me.
The very first article on this blog was a Media Monday and it was on Paris Hilton's then new song “Come Alive”. It was airy and breathy and stunning really. I say this was from an unbiased point of view. It's been almost a year, since it was released and I can look at it objectively now.
This waiting thing is what is bothering me. We were supposed to have “High Off My Love” back in October of last year. Then, Paris kept putting it off. Shifting the release date around from February to the finally stated May 15th. It made me salty and I was being a bitch refusing to blog about it.
And, yet here I am.
The question truly is what don't I like about this song. It has Hilton's trademark vocals that match up with Britney Spears vocal prowess quite well. I like the trap beat.
If Paris wanted to go for a spotlight song she should enlist someone like Lana Del Rey. That would have people talk. Lana Del Rey would never do it, but it would be a fascinating collaboration. Someone intersting and prevalent that's what Paris needs.
The real problem I have with this video is that it's not scandalous unless your living in 1982. All of Paris's videos have been high quality productions. That is not going to get people talking. Paris wants to be taken seriously and I respect that, but it is not the way she is going to obtain commercial domination.
What Paris Hilton needs is a Miley Cyrus “We Can't Stop” kind of video WITH a song that is ear catching like “Uptown Funk”. It needs to be a slam dunk on both counts or she won't crack the 100 most popular songs in the country. But, I digress. Watch the video. Put it on repeat. Download the single. No one else is going to.
