24-yr-old daughter of Billionaire Antonio Deinde Fernandez has been dubbed ‘the next Rihanna by the Daily Mail.
Ambimbola ‘Bim’ Fernandez,is the daughter of gemstone entrepreneur and former UN ambassador, Antonio Deinde Fernandez, who is reportedly worth about $8.7 billion making him one of the world’s wealthiest men.
Miss Fernandez released her first single on Tuesday and sat down for an interview with the New York Post
According to the young singer, who is based in New York, she embarked on her career without the help of her dad.
She, however, admits that he gives her a hefty monthly allowance which pays for her luxury Manhattan apartment among other living expenses.
‘Money can’t buy a record deal,’ she said of her situation. ‘It can’t buy good music. You can either sing or you can’t.’
Her first single ‘Let’s Take It Naked’ was released today on SMH Records’ site, with an iTunes roll-out expected soon.
She cites Rihanna as one of her biggest musical inspirations.
The title of her song, ‘Let’s take It Naked’ might be considered a bit too risqué for a billionaire’s daughter but she disagrees, ‘it’s not even that racy of a song! She says
‘It’s very poppy, like, “I think you’re cute! Do you like me? So let’s get naked!” I want it to be that song where it’s like,
“Turn that song on! Let’s get ready! Let’s do shots!”’
In November, she signed her record deal with SMH and is now topping off negotiations for her reality TV pilot called
Gold Blooded to be picked up by a major network.
Her only prior professional music experience was a vocal cameo in Cobra Starship’s 2009 album Hot Mess – a feature she booked after meeting the band’s lead singer, Gabe Saporta, backstage at a show.
Her record label says that Miss Fernandez has not put any of her own money into the music project.
