“This is for them girls,” sings CJ Hilton on the opening track to his latest mixtape. Hilton’s Sextape is an 11-track musical portrayal of intimate bedroom moments and the joy of being in love. While the passion from songs like “Take Off Your Clothes” and “Down” is directed at the ladies, the Baltimore native insists his work can be appreciated by the fellas as well.
“I want listeners to know that good R&B still exist. I want ladies to feel sexy, however, still respected,” says Hilton. “I want young men to know that everything does not have to be vulgar. There’s a way to get what you want and still be respectful and classy.”
Hilton’s focus on respect and class is most likely a result of his upbringing in the church. As the son of a gospel singer, CJ got his start with music in the choir. He eventually connected with Washington, DC-based production company Backwoods, and later signed to several labels including Tommy Mattola’s Casablanca Records, Clive Davis’ J Records, and Capitol Records. Hilton is now on the Sony Music Entertainment roster.
The 25-year-old’s journey through the music industry has given him the opportunity to build relationships with several high-profile show biz veterans. One of those vets is producer Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse) who assisted Hilton with the production on Sextape. CJ produced about 90% of the project while Remi worked on few tracks alongside him.
Another seasoned musician contributed to Hilton’s Sextape as well. The sensual song “Come” features fellow Maryland vocalist Mario. The two R&B performers have been friends for years.
“Mario and I are like brothers,” says CJ. “We grew up together in Baltimore.”
With tracks like “Come”, “Let’s Make Love”, and “So Good”, Hilton’s Sextape is providing couples with the inspiration to perhaps try to film their own home movies this Valentine’s Day weekend.
