Paris Hilton and Rina Sawayama

Paris Hilton and Rina Sawayama have released their collaborative single ‘I’m Free’ – check it out below.

The song contains a sample of Ultra Naté’s 1997 house classic ‘Free’, and it is expected to be included on Hilton’s highly-awaited second album ‘Infinite Icon’, which will be released on September 6.

The album, her first since debut ‘Paris’ in 2006, will be executive produced by Sia, and was first confirmed during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last October.

Listen to the song here:

The song was first announced in a post on Hilton’s Instagram account last week, which showed a video depicting a text conversation between the two singers.

The first text in the video is from Hilton, with an audio recording titled ‘Free’ and a message saying, “Hey sis! Been working on something…”

“Paris!! Obsessed,” is the reply from Sawayama. “What if you…did a verse?” replies Hilton.

Rina then says she is “running to the studio”, which leaves Paris “on the edge of my seat”.

The post then says “three infinite hours later” the track was complete.

In March, Sawayama said she wasn’t able to release her next album “under my current conditions”.

She said her “mental health has been awful” over the past year, adding: “I’ve been lucky to have found ways to keep my business afloat and support myself as well as my team, but when it comes to new music I can’t release another album under my current conditions.

“I feel really trapped and don’t know what to do.”

Those comments came amidst Sawayama’s public battle with her label Dirty Hit, which is co-founded by The 1975‘s manager Jamie Oborne. At Glastonbury 2023, Sawayama called lead singer Matty Healy out for his controversial comments made on The Adam Friedland podcast whilst introducing her song ‘STFU’: “Tonight this goes out to a white man that watches ‘Ghetto Gaggers’ [porn] and mocks Asian people on a podcast. He also owns my masters. I’ve had enough.”

Each member of The 1975 has a stake in Dirty Hit, with Healy previously serving as creative director for four years before stepping down from the role in April 2023.
