Joey Essex signs six-figure record deal
Tuesday 21 June 2011
TOWIE star Joey Essex has signed a six- figure record deal. The 20-year-old has teamed up with 360 records and is set to release a single called Reem- what else?
Joey, who joined the ITV2 show earlier this year has apparently already recorded the track with girl band Miss Millionaire, reports The Daily Mail.
He can apparently be heard ‘rapping’ phrases such as ‘I wanna look reem, smell reem, be reem’ and ‘no carbs before Marbs’.
His manager has said that ‘we’ve produced a fun club track that Joey is very proud of.’
A source told the News of the World: 'The TOWIE cast are all household names now especially among teenagers who buy music online. Joey could have a big hit on his hands.'
It certainly seems that The Only Way Is Essex and its cast never fails to shock us, first winning a BAFTA award and now this!
Joey is famed for his super tight jeans, orange Uggs, blow-dried bouffant and, of course, his well-known ‘reem’ catchphrase. Joey has won the hearts of a legion of viewers and his romance with fellow TOWIE star Sam Faiers, who returned to the UK recently after a trip to LA, has kept Joey firmly in the spotlight.
Despite criticism from music lovers and TOWIE haters, Joey remained ever optimistic, recently writing on his Twitter page ‘looking forward to launching my single! Haha. Its reem… Trust me ;)’. Hmm, we’ll just have to wait and see…
