Carmine Gotti Agnello is all grown up, and embarking on the next stage of his life: making music.

Agnello, the oldest of Victoria Gotti's sons - the family that starred for three seasons on A&E's reality series, "Growing Up Gotti" - will unveil his smooth new single at a Manhattan birthday bash hosted by Mom Saturday night. (Agnello was also on VH1's "But Can They Sing?" in 2005, and the answer is yes.)

"We're having a party to celebrate my album," said Agnello, who turned 24 yesterday. "I spent three years working on this, three years of vocal lessons and choreography lessons. . . . I am really excited."

The self-titled album - "It's up-tempo, I like to call it hip-pop," he said - is 95 percent finished, and will be out sometime this summer. But the first single, "Jealous," a throbbing collaboration with former Ruff Ryders chief executive Darrin Dean, is all set for its premiere Saturday at celeb hot spot M2 Ultralounge on West 28th Street.

Sorry, it's a private party. "There's going to be a lot of basketball players there," Agnello said. "I can't say who. And different music industry people."

Agnello, who still lives in Old Westbury, likes history, and his musical tastes travel through time: Elvis Presley, Barry White, KISS, Notorious B.I.G. "I'm also a big fan of Lady Gaga," he added.

What's next? "I'd really like to open up for an R&B guy like Omarion."
