When we first heard that Internet/reality-TV star Kim Kardashian might be making a foray into pop music, our first thought was, should we give “Stars Are Blind” another listen? But then we thought: ace producer The-Dream is involved. Kanye West is involved. There’s a chance it might work. But we didn’t expect to hear the song itself for weeks if not months. We were wrong: Kim debuted the song last night in Las Vegas, where she was hosting a New Year’s Eve bash at Tao nightclub. We think it’s called “Turn It Up”. Listen below.
You can hear Kim addressing the crowd at the start: “Alright guys, I didn’t mean to, but I did a song with The-Dream and it’s really fun… I hope you guys like it. Everybody have a drink and dance to my first single!”
We’re not even sure Kim is aware this video is buzzing around the Web — she’s busy eating breakfast after what was surely a late night. But from what we can hear… we want to hear more. Her singing voice (again, based on the audio quality above) sounds, or has been made to sound, just a little like Dev (of “Bass Down Low” and “Like A G6″ fame). Are we ready for Kim Kardashian to be a pop star? As long as she’s willing to shake that asset, she may be able to do anything she wants.
