The Pussycat Dolls Team With Busta Rhymes for the Hottest Single of the Spring

LOS ANGELES, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- A&M Records recording artists The Pussycat Dolls are teaming up with rap superstar Busta Rhymes for their sizzling first single, "Don't Cha." The track was produced by another hip-hop trailblazer, Cee Lo Green. The single was released to radio last week, and the commercial version will be in stores on April 19, 2005. The video will be shot next week in Los Angeles by famed director Paul Hunter.

After only three days of airplay, "Don't Cha" is already proving to be a hit in Miami and Phoenix. In Philadelphia, Marian Newsome, Asst. Program Director for WIOQ raves, "We have #1 phones. It's a total chick song ... every girl around here goes nuts when she hears it." The Dolls will be performing at various radio shows across the country this spring, including Miami, Phoenix and Los Angeles (KIIS-FM's annual Wango Tango.)

The seven members of The Pussycat Dolls embody the new model of "entertainment groups," a combination of vocalists and dancers. The Dolls were first heard on the soundtracks to two of last fall's biggest films, "Shall We Dance" (covering Dean Martin's classic "Sway") and "Shark Tale" (performing Patti LaBelle's "We Went As Far As We Felt Like Going") and they are putting the finishing touches on their first album, which will be released later this summer.

Additionally, The Pussycat Dolls are preparing for the opening of the permanent Pussycat Doll Lounge, located inside Caesar's Palace on the world famous Las Vegas Strip on April 9th. "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria will host the grand opening.
