Before she became famous for jiggling in her red lifeguard bathing suit on Baywatch, Carmen Electra was an aspiring singer. In fact, she was one of Prince’s protégé. The Purple Rain singer executive produced her self-titled debut album. Since the record wasn’t commercially nor critically well received, Carmen’s pop career ended. 20 years later, the 40-year-old personality is giving it another go.
Carmen debuted “I Like It Out Loud” a couple of months ago, but just dropped the music video. Produced by Bill Hamel, the track is a club-ready jam which features Electra’s vocal and rapping skills. I hate to admit it, but after a couple of listens, it grew on me. The clip is equally appealing. It combines your typical party shots with footage from Carmen’s appearances on various talk shows including my silver fox boyfriend, Andy Cohen. Check out Carmen hanging out with trashy hookers, voguing gays, decent man candy while looking fantastically fierce. She looks amazeballs.
What do you think of the music video? Does the track have potential? Do you think Carmen Electra has what it takes to become a pop singer or at the very least a gay dance icon? Sound off below.
