Jessica Gomes: Yeah, from Maybach Music.
You're going to have to get used to that.
I just can't believe it, seriously, because I did it a long time ago. And I totally forgot about it.
When did you do it?
I did it back in 2007, 2008. I think it was 2008, though.
The first time people heard it was on "Maybach Music" with Jay-Z.
Right, Jay-Z and Rick Ross. It was at the beginning of the track. It was another girl talking and then she says, 'What is this?' and I say 'It's Maybach music' and then we both say 'I like this Maybach music.' And we both go 'Sweet.'
How did that come about?
We were just hanging out with friends in the studio and then it just happened. We got behind the mic, started talking and that was it, really. They decided to put it in their song and nothing came about.
But now everyone's using my part where I say "Maybach Music." Even A-Trak, who's a friend of mine, the DJ, asked 'Have you heard this song?' And I said 'No.'
I haven't been living in New York for the past year and a half. I've been living back in Australia, but now I'm living in L.A. It evolved into something really big. I didn't expect it to be like this. It was having fun and mucking around, really. I guess people just dig the Aussie accent.
When was the first time you heard it?
I heard the Rick Ross and Jay-Z song and I loved it. I thought it was great.
So how does one find herself in Rick Ross' studio?
(Laughs). Well, we were just all friends. I was friends of friends with Jay. We were all hanging out and they were just like, 'Wow, we love your accent. We love your voice. Why don't you say something and we'll record it.' That was seriously it.
Who else was in the studio?
Just a group of friends. A friend of Jay's and then I was a friend of Jay's friend. I don't know Rick Ross. We're not friends. I know of Jay. I've shot his Rocawear campaign before. But we're not down friends, at all. We're just acquaintances.
^ LOL. Rest those eyes, doggies, I know y'all need a quick breather:
Now that was pretty hot, but if y'all are like me, y'all want to know if Jessica is caking up from those records, right? I mean, doggy doesn't make the Forbes list and NOT cake up his peeps? Just ask Pill, right? LOL. XXL came thru and kept it gully.
Do you get paid for the intro? It is used quite often.
No, I don't get paid for it. I don't think I should be paid for it. It's not about the money for me. I was lucky enough at that time to do that. I'm a successful model that travels the world and is doing really well and it's very flattering that I got acknowledged by the hip-hop world.
How long have you been modeling?
I been modeling for over 10 years now in Perth, Western Australia, where I'm from and my mom put me in modeling school. My mom is Chinese and my dad is Portuguese. I started doing commercials. I started doing a TV series. I was taken on by a international agency and that's when I started traveling to Asia, Japan, Korea, places like that first. Then I moved to New York when I was 20 and joined IMG. They've been representing me for the past seven years. I've been a Sports Illustrated model, working with them for the past five years. I'm very happy. This is my life. I got a lot of photo shoots coming up.
^ SMH. Don't ask me why but for some reason I really thought "if" the "Maybach Music" was a real person, it'd be an English woman. Straight outta Great Britain or something, right? LOL. Either way, you can't deny the sexiness that comes with Jessica! LOL.
