The 20-year-old has caught the eye of 50 Cent, who's apparently desperate for the chance to sign and manage her.
A source exclusively told omg!: "She's becoming a big deal over here [US] and now she wants to launch her own music career.
"It's a good idea, people buy into her and she can make a lot of money. She has the personality and attitude - and that is half the battle with the music business."
Fiddy has already apparently started making noise about getting her signed to his label, G-Unit Records.
He told our source: "If she wants to sign with me - I can make her one of the biggest stars in the world.
"Overnight I can have her working with Alicia Keys, Chris Brown and Snoop. If that's the direction she wants to go I can make us both a lot of money.
"Next time she's in New York I am going to try and set up a business dinner with her - because now is her time."
Cara has kept schtum about the scandal, despite H&M - who have a zero-tolerance approach to drugs - saying they were "investigating" the photos.
Instead, she's been having a ball on Twitter after jetting off to Singapore to work with Karl Lagerfeld, tweeting various snaps from her trip.
She even revealed that she's on the look out for a new personal assistant - requesting that applicants must have a certain set of skills.
Cara tweeted: "I am searching for a new PA, these are the following criteria: Massage, Possible fondling when needed, Cooking, Cleaning, The ability to fly."
