KIM Kardashian may be a massively successful global superstar, but one venture DIDN’T quite work out for her – pop music.
Fans recently discovered Kim’s 2011 song Jam (Turn It Up) and were shocked by its resurfaced music video where she CRAWLED on the ground … and sang.
في 2011, Kim followed in the footsteps of her then-mentor Paris Hilton by releasing a pop song and accompanying music video.
Jam (Turn It Up) was produced by The Dream – whose co-writing credits also include Single Ladies by Beyonce and Umbrella by Rihanna.
It was Kim’s first and last attempt at a music career.
في ال أغنية مصورة, Kim posed as the cameras flashed, tossed her hair under neon hues and crawled across the floor as she sang: “They playin’ my jam, turn it up, turn it up.”
Kim’s “self-released” relic from her rise can be found officially on Spotify, and the once-removed video was reposted by fans to YouTube.
Naturally, viewers went wild over the pulsating peculiar pop performance.

‘IT’S 2022 & I JUST FOUND THIS’
The music video – re-uploaded by fans – saw a resurgence as Kim’s romance with Pete Davidson, 28, similarly ‘turned up.’
“إنه 2022 I just found this wtf,” a fan commented one day ago.
“Queen of Pop,” another semi-ironically chimed in.
Others said they earnestly enjoyed the upbeat electronic effort:
“Why do I actually see myself walking down the street bopping to this in my headphones being a main character, my first time hearing this and I actually like it,” كتب أحدهم.
Others noted that Kim didn’t do much in the way of choreo:
KIM’S REGRETS HER ‘JAM’
Although Keeping Up With Kardashians fans recently gushed over Jam (Turn It Up), it’s a recollection Kim, 41, later said she would rather turn down.
“It’s definitely a memory and it was a fun experience. We gave the proceeds to a cancer organization,” Kardashian told “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen في 2014.
Half of the song proceeds went to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“But if there’s one thing in life that I wish I didn’t do … I don’t like it when people kind of dabble into things they shouldn’t be,” هي اضافت.
“And that I don’t think I should have. يحب, what gave me the right to think I could be a singer?
يحب, I don’t have a good voice.”
KANYE’S CURIOUS CREDIT
Kim’s 2011 music video may also have a reverb of regret since it involved one surprising collaborator – كاني ويست.
“Basically, Ciara came to me and was like, ‘You’ve got to meet The-Dream,’” Kim recalled in 2011 on the talk show The Seven, per BILLBOARD.
“I was not into doing a song. اعتقدت, ‘Everyone kind of tries that, and it doesn’t really work out so well.’
So I talked to friends like Kanye and a few of my other musical friends, like this is their life. They gave me good advice.
They asked me what I do for fun, وقلت, ‘I go shopping, I hang out with friends.’ وقالوا, ‘We go to the studio for fun. Come have fun with us. ‘Don’t think too much about it.'”
Kim added: “There’s no album in the works or anything — just one song we did for the show.”
The music video aired on Kim’s brief series Kourtney & Kim Take New York.
In a clip Kim posted to Instagram in 2016, Kanye is even visible watching the video being shot from behind the scenes.
Although Jam (Turn It Up) is interesting as a pop cultural artifact, his involvement certainly adds something a little extra.
Kim and Kanye began dating in 2012.
هم tied the knot في 2014 and divorced after seven years of marriage in February 2021.
They share four kids together North, ثمانية, القديس, ستة, شيكاغو, أربعة, and two-year-old Psalm.
Kanye is currently dating actress Julia Fox after meeting last month.
