Fans of Kewpie-sweet Paris Bennett from American Idol's fifth season may never get over what they hear on Princess P, her debut CD. ''Imma give it to you straight no chaser,'' she bellows on ''I'm So Hot,'' the hardest — and least winning — of the album's hard-edged, surprisingly competent (but not catchy) club tracks. Other than the hook-soaked ''Get Bizzy'' (co-written by her mother, Jamecia), what gives these sub-Ciara songs their kick is Paris' full-throated delivery. The less said about her rap with Kevin ''Chicken Little'' Covais, meanwhile, the better. C+
