Two weeks after confirming to EW that his label was definitely a go, gossip blogger Perez Hilton is sharing his first signing to Perezcious Music: French singer Sliimy (pronounced “Sleemy”). “I think that his music will make a lot of people smile,” says Perez. “It’s good, adult, quirky pop.” Hilton discovered the singer, whose album will drop on Sept. 14, after receiving an e-mail with Sliimy’s cover of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer.” Hilton posted the song on his site last December, and recently enlisted celebrity pals like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks to tweet “Who is Sliimy?,” creating instant online buzz. Sliimy is also opening some dates on both Spears’ and Perry’s European tours.
So what do you think of Sliimy, Music Mix-ers? Will he find pop success like Hilton’s pal Lady Gaga?
