Former Playboy model Carmen Electra, 40, who had taken a break form the music industry 20 years ago, has announced her comeback.
Electra, whose real name is Tara Leigh Patrick, catapulted into the music scene after meeting Prince in the Nineties, signing on to his Paisley Park Records. She will release a new single, I Like It Loud, on November 13.
The newly-single star, who called off her four-year engagement to rocker Rob Patterson last month, said that recording music again has been vivifying. “I like it loud, I do! I like everything loud, over the top, dramatic,” the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Glamoholic magazine. “The music is very danceable, I liked the track and was able to go in and record it in a very low-key studio,” she said.
Electra famously debuted as a female rapper with her 1993 self-titled album; it was an image promoted by Prince, who also provided lyrics.
