Internet sensations trying to make the jump to mainstream success took another turn this week with MySpace vixen Tila Tequila releasing her debut single and music video "I Love U" without the help of a record label.

The clothing-optional "star" opted to team with digital distributor INgrooves to put out the single, tapped Strategic Artist Management and United Talent Agency for all levels of representation and worked with production firm Endemol.

The single, produced by Lil Jon, is available exclusively from iTunes until March 13, after which it will be distributed to all digital retailers. The music video, produced by Endemol specifically for the small screen, has been available exclusively on mobile phones since Feb. 14.
