The party girls are back. Shanell is reuniting with Aubrey O’Day for a sequel to their ’80s jam “Party All the Time.”
The Young Money songstress and former Danity Kane diva have been busy with their own projects, but are finding time to record a continuation to their 2009 cover of Eddie Murphy and Rick James’ 1985 hit. “That is the reunion of ‘Party All of the Time,'” Shanell told Rap-Up.com of the as-yet-untitled record. “We started something and we’re gonna get back in and finish. I think we’re both party girls so it will still have that party essence.”
The result may appear on Shanell’s upcoming mixtape Nobody’s Bitch, the follow-up to last year’s Shut Up and Listen. “It’s gonna be a real fun mixtape,” she said. “I think Shut Up and Listen was more laid-back. Nobody’s Bitch is gonna be the party girl, the party animal.”
In addition to Aubrey, she’s collaborating with some new talent. “I’m not really one to follow any trends that somebody else already set, so there’s a lot of new producers I’ve met along the way that I believe in and collaborated with for the sound of Shanell to take over the airwaves.”
Shanell serves as artistic director on Lil Wayne’s “I Am Still Music” tour, which starts its second leg on July 13 in Hartford, Conn.
