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.
在 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.
在里面 music video, 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.
自然, 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.’
“它的 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,” 一个写道.
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 在 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,” 她补充说.
“And that I don’t think I should have. 喜欢, what gave me the right to think I could be a singer?
喜欢, 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 – 肯伊·韦斯特.
“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. 我想, ‘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, and I said, ‘I go shopping, I hang out with friends.’ And they said, ‘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.
