Carmen Electra on Re-Launching Her Music Career: 'It's Always Been My Dream' (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)
Carmen Electra knows she has one man to thank for her new dance single, "I Like It Loud."
"Working with Prince many, many, many years ago, I got a little taste of what it was like to be on stage and in front of an audience and feel that energy," the 40-year-old pin-up queen told Celebuzz during an interview at a behind-the-scenes rehearsal.
"Obviously my career has taken off in different directions -- which I am very grateful for, I love acting -- but deep down inside this is what I have wanted to do for so long.
"I have got to the point in my life where I have felt like I have to go for it. Now is the time."
The dance-electronic track, which hit online stores Nov. 13, is the first song the 40-year-old former Baywatch babe has released since 1992 when her mentor, Prince, produced her self-titled album, "Carmen Electra."
Twenty years later, Electra revealed all her success on other mediums has never been quite enough.
"In my heart and soul I wanted to get back to music… I feel emotional because it’s [been] my dream for so long," she added.
