When Ray J released his new single “I Hit It First,” it was ridiculous. When he denied that it had anything to do with his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian, it was doubly ridiculous. And now that the song’s music video is out, that claim is so beyond ludicrous we just can’t take it anymore.
Not only does it blatantly reference Kim in the lyrics, some of the video is shot to reference the now-infamous sex tape Ray J made with Kim! Classy move, Ray.
First of all, the video’s leading lady could be a Kim Kardashian lookalike. If Ray J was just casting a hot chick, she could just as easily have been blonde, but nooooo, this woman has olive skin and long, dark hair slicked back in a sleek, high ponytail. Klassic Kim K.
Then there are scenes with this Kim doppelganger lounging on a bed in a fully-clothed nod to the 2007 sex tape Kim and Ray J made, that was then leaked and purchased for a million dollars. Faux-Kim lounges on the bed, framed by that classic “home video” hallmarks of a blinking red dot and “REC” in the corner. Subtle.
But how is this video most like the sex tape Ray J made with Kim Kardashian? It’s trying to cash in on someone else’s hotness and notoriety to to boost Ray J’s profile. In which case, mission accomplished.
Luckily, we can’t imagine that Kim or current boyfriend Kanye West cares about this the slightest bit because they’ve got other things on their minds, like having a baby, renting private jets and just generally being super famous.
