Ray J joyfully reminds the world that he “hit it first” in his new song that’s obviously about Kim Kardashian, and he even uses a Kim lookalike to recreate scenes from the sex tape that he shot with the reality show star. However, he’s not the first singer to take aim at Kim in a song, and he’s also not the first to use a Kim doppelganger in a music video.
Ray J never mentions Kim by name in “I Hit It First,” but a few other singers have. Soulja Boy wrote a more flattering song about the celeb cleverly titled “Kim Kardashian” that praised her with lyrics like this: “Damn, she’s fine, she’s on my mind / She’s so beautiful from the behind.” Unsurprisingly, Kim tweeted that she loved it.
Eminem expresses a different opinion about Kim in his tune “We Made You” — he raps that he thinks Kim is a man. However, the Kim lookalike in his music video is an attractive woman who attacks him with her big behind before getting thrown in a wood chipper that spits out wads of cash instead of bloody bits. Shockingly, Kim wasn’t offended by meeting such a violent end. According to People, she wrote this response on her blog: “I think this video is so funny! I am a huge Eminem fan and find it flattering that he would rap about me. He’s a bit harsh about some other celebrities, but you just have to let it go and have a sense of humor.”
However, she didn’t have a sense of humor about the lookalike that was used in an Old Navy commercial that doubled as a mini music video for the song “Super C-U-T-E” — she sued the company for making singer Melissa Molinaro resemble her so much.
And of course Kanye West has rapped about Kim. In the song “Way Too Cold,” he declared that he was in love with her while she and Kris Humphries were still married, and he revealed that he wrote “Perfect Bitch” about his lucky lady. And while Kim might not appreciate Ray J referencing her sex tape, maybe she finds this line from Kanye’s “Clique” a little more romantic: “Eat breakfast at Gucci / My girl a superstar all from a home movie.”
Kanye also rapped in the Fat Joe song “Pride N Joy,” and the music video for the tune featured a fashionable Kim lookalike complete with fake eyelashes, skintight leggings, and Kim’s favorite Croydon facelift hairstyle. You can decide if this lyric is about Kim: “And even if she’s all about the money I don’t really care / I got a lot of money it’s enough of it that we can share.”
But who needs all these songs about Kim and all of the Kardashian knockoffs when you can see and hear the superstar herself in the teaser video for her tune “(Jam) Turn It Up?” Well, you can at least hear some semblance of Kim’s high-pitched, monotone whine — Auto-Tune is supposed to fix voices, not make them more annoying. Kim also looks like she’s about to star in another sex tape in the video, which features her crawling around in a pair of bubblegum pink pleather panties.
So now here’s the big question of the day: Which is worse, “(Jam) Turn It Up” or “I Hit It First?”
