Teen singer staying true to her years

NEW YORK, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Texas pop singer Paula DeAnda didn't want to sound any older than her 16 years on her debut album.

The self-titled effort is making waves thanks to the hit single "Doing Too Much," and DeAnda says she and her producers were careful to record material that would seem appropriate for a teen singer.

"Nowadays you can get away with more but that's something I didn't want to do until I get older and I know what those kinds of things are about," said DeAnda.

"I have a young group listening to my songs, and one of the cool things about my music right now is parents can listen to it, too."

"Paula DeAnda" features appearances by rappers Lil' Wayne, Baby Bash and Ak'sent, as well as writing and production by Ne-Yo, Timbaland and Diane Warren. DeAnda co-wrote seven of the songs, including "Doing Too Much."
