    Christina Milian reveals her first Young Money Entertainment jam on Rise of an Empire [Out March 11, 2014], and it's the sexy, slick banger we've all been waiting for. With Lil Wayne in tow, the soulful diva delivers one of her most infectious anthems yet. It's classic Christina, but to the next level.

    About the track, she smiles, "Some people look at video models and they're like, 'There's something about them that's so confident and sexy. How do they carry it?' We all want to feel like that! There's a twist of edge that goes with it. I have those moments where I'm having a really good time, and I let go."

    "Video Model" is not the only piece from Christina that will make you stop and take another look. She's also in the midst of prepping her new album—the first she's done for Young Money Entertainment.

    "My fans have been waiting a long time, and they're going to love it," she assures. "I worked on the majority of it in Atlanta. That city is known for making great R&B pop music all the way from Usher to TLC. You name it people have to touch down in Atlanta, especially in this genre. Even if you're pop artist, Justin Bieber has made albums and music there. It's a great stomping ground for making real homegrown music. I worked with Polow da Don and some classic legendary guys who are still current and dope. They gave me the right chemistry I needed so I could come back with my sexy approach. I'm just having a good time. The of course it's my relationships. My experiences in the public and the private have been out there. I'm willing to sing about them on the record, and they're pretty dope. I think it's mature and sexy, but fun. It's a new grown up Christina, but still sexy. Don't forget that."

    Sounds like one of the biggest R&B events of 2014 already.
