Leighton Meester recorded a duet with Robin Thicke

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester (character Blair Waldorf) just started her music career and recorded a duet with US soul star Robin Thicke. Her single is called “Somebody To Love” and her debut album “Leighton Meester” will be released in the beginning of 2010. She has signed a deal with Universal Republic Records in the US and worked on her album with hottest producers including Harvey Mason Jr. (Justin Timberlake, Pink), Polow Da Don (Usher, Fergie, Kelis) and Spencer Nezey (Jupiter Rising).

The versatile artist has built up a solid resume of singing/acting performances the past few years, including a singing role in the 2007 movie Drive Thru and a memorable duet with the legendary Tony Bennett on the hit HBO series ‘Entourage.’ Citing diverse musical influences such as M.I.A. and Gwen Stefani, she has hinted many of the new songs on her debut effort favor an electro-pop edge. Most recently, a ‘leaked’ cover version of the Awesome New Republic song “Birthday,” featuring Meester on lead vocals, has been embraced by online fans around the world.
