Miss Hilton is a phenomenon. As much through making money by doing nothing as by silently covering a reggae classic and getting away with it.
Yes you've heard right. Paris Hilton's current single is a - let's call it - remix of UB40's hit 'Kingston Town', at least for the savvy listener. But good songs never die and although the young generation might be too young to remember the original, the 1990 released track was a solid hit back then - and a sure bet for Miss Hilton.
A bit of reggae, some classic elements from past hits, a few sips of "Red, Red, Wine" and you've got the next summer hit!
Sing along! "The stars shine so bright, But they`re fading after dawn There is magic in kingston town" (UB40)
"Even though the gods are crazy Even though the stars are blind If you show me real love baby I'll show you mine" (Hilton)
