Paris is debut studio album by Paris Hilton, released on her own label, Heiress Records, in association with Warner Bros. Records. The album was released in the U.S. on August 22, 2006. The entire album was posted on AOL Music on August 13, 2006, causing the album to be leaked on the internet before the release date. This album is a mix of pop and hip hop with dance, ragga and rock elements.

Hilton first announced plans to record an album in 2003. In 2004, she met with producer Rob Boldt and began recording demo tracks. While collaborating with Boldt, Hilton came across the song "Screwed". Hilton recorded a demo for the song and began talking about it in many interviews, saying it would be the first single from the album. That same summer, Haylie Duff said in an interview that "Screwed" was actually going to be recorded by her and would be the first single from her album. The two girls began a legal battle for the song.[1] Not long afterwards, Duff was dropped by her record label which allowed Paris to claim the song as hers. In 2005, Hilton was signed to Warner Bros. Records for distribution of her album. At that time, Hilton began working with Rob Cavallo, who had produced tracks for Green Day, Jewel, and Alanis Morissette. Initially, the album was planned to have a pop/rock sound. However, Hilton decided to move towards a pop/hip-hop sound after meeting with Scott Storch in Miami. After months of collaboration with Storch, the album was finally complete and ready for release. Producers for Paris included Greg Wells, Kara DioGuardi, Jane Wiedlin and Scott Storch. Hilton collaborated with Fat Joe and Jadakiss on the song "Fightin' Over Me." The first single from Paris, "Stars Are Blind," produced by Fernando Garibay, was released for download on June 20, 2006 and peaked at number eighteen on the Billboard Hot 100; "Turn It Up" and "Nothing in This World" followed as worldwide singles.
