Ray J Opens Up About ‘Bad Girl’ Relationships, Launching New Nightclub and ‘Deeper’ Music

Yes, the song may be catchy and sonically perfect for the upcoming summer season, but when it all goes down in the record books, “I Hit It First” will be remembered for its sheer gall, in song and video (which premiered on TMZ ). Here are a few of the key moments from the brave new video. The Kim K. Look-A-Like There are a number of model types that Ray J could have chosen for this video, but he was clearly going for a certain effect. The “One Wish” singer told New York’s Hot 97 that folks were “going way too deep” into the meaning of the song, but the fact that he chose a curvy, olive-toned, dark-haired model with the patented Kim K ponytail says otherwise. There are a number of women who pattern their look after the most-famous Kardashian, but the sexless sex-tape scenes, the basketball-dunking Kris Humphries twin and an “F Network” reality show are just too hard to ignore.

I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first.” These introductory lyrics to I Hit It First suggest that Ray J may have been the first (and greatest) player of the late-90’s cult-toy-darling, Bop It ! Ray J’s reliance on words like “hit,” “hop,” and “boppers,” as well as his claim that he can do it all without “even put[ting] in work” makes the Bop It thesis incredibly persuasive. Given the tactile nature of Bop It, in which one must “pull” and “twist” and “squeeze” and “bop” it, confusing Ray J’s lyrics for a song about sex is understandable but ultimately misinformed. Ray J’s click repetition of “I hit it” at the end of the verse is a further shout out to Bop It and his mastery of it. He is proud of his Bop It skills and is challenging any and all listeners to challenge his prowess.

As the old adage goes: Breaking up is hard to do. And maybe even harder than breaking up with someone is the path to getting over an old relationship, and moving on with one’s life. For evidence, look no further than the recent antics of Ray J. Last week, Brandy’s brother released the art for a new single, subtly titled ” I Hit It First ,” with the even more subtle move of using a pixelatedphoto of Kim Kardashian (who, you may be aware, is dating someone named Kanye West and is currently with child) for the cover art. Ray J’s claim isn’t wrong. As we all know, Ms.Kardashian initially rose to fame following the 2007 leak of a sex tape (recorded in 2003) featuring herself and Ray J.
