New York, NY- Lil Goonie provides the music background for Girls Gone Wild tour. The song titled “Girlz Gone Wild” also appears on Lil Goonie’s Album.

Battery/Bystorm/Jive artist Lil Goonie has teamed up with America’s favorite guilty pleasure, Girls Gone Wild, as part of the new “Hollywood Gone Wild” campaign. Fittingly, the campaign will feature Lil Goonie’s anthemic single “Girlz Gone Wild” in a series of commercials and infomercials, to be run on major networks such as SpikeTV, Comedy Central, MTV, and FUSE. The song will also be touted on the inundated Girls Gone Wild website; An accompanying video captures a live performance by Lil Goonie in his home state of Tennessee.

“This is an amazing marriage, pairing the strong Girls Gone Wild brand with Lil Goonie and his anthem “Girlz Gone Wild,” remarks Battery Senior Vice President and General Manager Neil Levine. “It should instantly give us the right visuals in the marketplace along with some great marketing opportunities. This is a win-win for everyone involved.”

“Hollywood Gone Wild” is a new venture for Mantra Films, the makers of the storied DVD series, which rakes in $100 million per sales annually. “Hollywood Gone Wild” marks the new face of Girls Gone Wild. A national tour will follow in support of the DVD release. At 19, Lil Goonie is one of the youngest members of the national campaign, which will serve an apt showcase for the fast-ascending star.

The limelight is nothing new to the Nashville native, who’s been rhyming since age 12. By 15, he had an exclusive production deal. In 2007, he caught the eye of vaunted talent scout and President of Urban Music for Jive/Zomba, Mark Pitts. Pitts, the former manager of the Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans and Nas, and current A&R for Usher, Ciara and Chris Brown, immediately signed Lil Goonie to Bystorm Entertainment, his label imprint through Jive Records.

Eric Deutsch, Senior Vice President of Production for Mantra Films, who’s been instrumental in the arrangement, adds: “Of all the Girls Gone Wild songs we’ve received over the past 10 years, this has to be the best one. In a new age of innovative deals that co-brand music with other media entities, this is very exciting for us and we look forward to doing more cross promotion with Jive, Battery and Sony Music Entertainment”.

Goonie is now preparing his hotly-anticipated major label debut for an early 2009 release. Stay tuned. Lil Goonie is coming.
