We all know that Kim Kardashian became famous from her and Ray J’s home sex video that was released back in February 2007. This led to her and the rest of her family in the spotlight of fame, which ultimately resulted in their own reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, along with two spin-offs. Now, all of the Kardashian-Jenner family are famous and successful, with Kim Kardashian rated as the highest-earning reality star in 2010, with an estimated earning of $6 million.
Ray J, however, wasn’t recognized the same way Kim was after their sex tape was released. Perhaps the fact that Kim absolutely blew up in the celebrity world and Ray J just didn’t caused some jealous feelings, which could have led to the writing, recording, and release of “I Hit It First”, six years later.
What baffles me is the fact that Ray J has the nerve to even release a song like this. Kim Kardashian is happily with Kanye West and has a child together, North, so a song that causes more celebrity buzz and unwanted attention about Kim’s past is probably something the couple doesn’t want to deal with.
Now, this is just my guess: it’s not like Kanye wants to think about the fact that his girlfriend previously made a sex tape that went viral internationally, but now he gets to hear Ray J’s two cents about the matter.
Let’s take a look at some of the lyrics:
She might move on to rappers and ballplayers
But we all know I hit it first
The rapper that Ray J “may be” referring to would be Kanye West, and the ballplayer he also “may be” referring to would be Kris Humphries, whose marriage to Kim lasted for 72 days in August 2011.
I had her head going north and her ass going south
But now baby chose to go West
The first line is most definitely a reference to their sex tape, and the second line – well, that’s a no-brainer; baby chose to go Kanye West.
And I gave her that really bomb sex
No matter where she goes or who she knows
She still belongs in my bed
She still “belongs” in your bed? Seriously, the woman is a mother now!
Going hard in the streets, mobbin with my homies
Sippin’ on good, blowin’ on OG
Me and ghost sittin’ clean with the matching rollie
I did that first so everybody know me
I’m just going to leave it to Kingsley: as the YouTube sensation (ItsKingsleyBitch) said, “Everybody doesn’t know you, Ray J, that’s the thing. They know Kim, which is why you’re upset, and which is why you released this tacky-ass song.”
And if you were to come back to me girl
We’ll make another movie
As if that doesn’t say it’s about Kim. Not to mention that the official music video has a young, sexy woman in it who looks just like her.
“I think people are going way too deep,” Ray J says about the song, denying the fact that it is about Kim. “It’s really light. Everybody’s going this way with it,” he continues, gesturing in one direction, and says, “I’m going this way with it,” while gesturing in the other direction.
Well, that explanation didn’t make any sense.
It’s time to let it go, Ray J. She moved on, and so should you. I’m glad that you had fun with this song, but your fifteen minutes of fame are probably over.
