Paris Hilton Vs Kim Kardashian: Whose Song Bombed?

March 9th, 2011 // 3 Comments

Both have done sex tapes. Both are socialites. Both are famous for reasons that are not quite clear to any of us. Yet it seems that Kim Kardashian is bound and determined to follow in the footsteps (maybe with less missteps perhaps) of Paris Hilton, especially with Kim turning to music as a fun side project.

Last week Kim dropped her first single, entitle “Jam (Turn It Up)” and it was…well, it left much to be desired. In its first five days on sale according to Billboard, the song sold 14,000 downloads according to Nielsen SoundScan. That’s not enough to enable a debut on the 75-position Digital Songs chart — No. 75 this week is Nelly’s “Just a Dream,” with 26,000 sold.

LISTEN: Hear Kim’s new song now!

Well, to compare, Paris debuted her song “Stars Are Blind” in 2006 and it debuted at No. 10 with 52, 000 in its first week and debuted at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.

So Kim should stick to the rivers and the lakes that she’s used to and let Paris have the music arena…and let’s remember her first single…

    Paris’s song is a billion times better. It is not so bad for a little pop tune. Kim’s is absolute torture. How can her handlers let her put that out, how embarassing, I feel bad for her actually.

    I can’t believe I’m writing this — compared to Kim’s single, Paris sounds like Barbra
    Streisand! I think most people know Kim was serious about this tune. She worked at it a long time (we first heard about her foray into the music world back in fall of 2010). So all this posturing that it was for fun, charity and to get out of her comfort zone (in bed with any black guy who’ll have her) is a crock. I just can’t fathom how 14,000 people would actually buy this crap, charity aside.

    I do not like Paris but this song is hot – and at least I can listen to this many times and it is quite catchy. Kim’s song is a total disaster. What was Dream thinking about? He ruined his reputation for Kim. That is stupid!!
