BRAZILIAN SPIRIT UNLEASHED IN DURAN DURAN'S HIT SONG, "RIO"
Nicole from The Pussycat Dolls and Caress® Body Wash
Release New Brazilian Inspired Remake

GREENWICH, CT., April 8, 2008 — Nicole from The Pussycat Dolls releases a new Brazilian inspired remake of Duran Duran's hit song, "Rio," to celebrate the launch of Caress® Brazilian Exotic Oil Infusions body wash. "Rio (Caress Brazilian Mix)" encour­ages women to unleash their sensuous sides, vivacious charm and Brazilian spirits. The new song will debut at caressbrazilian.com on Tuesday, April 8th and then will hit the airwaves nation­wide.

Nicole Scherzinger, an exotic beauty who embodies the same enchant­ment and viva­cious­ness of Brazil, was a natural pick for the song's remake. The new song "Rio (Caress Brazilian Mix)" is bursting with the energy and colorful sounds of Brazil. "Rio (Caress Brazilian Mix)" was produced by Ron Fair and JR Rotem with addi­tional pro­duc­tion and mix by Ben H. Allen. First released in 1982, "Rio" climbed the charts to become a top twenty hit on both sides of the Atlantic, with the video becoming an MTV staple.

"Brazil is all about smooth moves, vivacious sounds and beautiful skin," says Scherzinger. "That's why I'm thrilled to be recording such a fun, Brazilian remake of my favorite Duran Duran song for Caress. Just like the new Caress Brazilian body wash, it's sexy, spirited and will inspire women to unleash the enchant­ment of Brazil."
