Lights Over Paris’ “I’m Not A Gangsta” Featuring Game Available Today
Lights Over Paris’ new single “I’m Not A Gangsta”, featuring famed hip-hop guru Game, is available on iTunes and Amazon today. This is the debut single from the band’s first full length album, due out this summer on Digital Records. The track was produced by Dr Luke’s Ammo (Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Pitbull) and recorded in Los Angeles.
This long awaited single has been in the making for almost a year, starting off as a rock hit and transforming into a hip-hop/pop track. Frontman, Robb “TaLLLLL” University describes the track as “a cross genre song that makes you want to dance, makes you want to throw your hands up, rock out, and definitely makes you want to party. This will be the summer anthem of 2011”.
The forthcoming album will also include producers Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Travis Barker) and Matt Squire (3OH!3, Ke$ha, Panic! At The Disco) as well as features from musical sensation, DEV. “It’s not just another pop record that you will shelf after a few months, we worked extremely hard to make this a timeless record,” explains Robb.
