Late Friday afternoon, word broke that Ray J was about to release “I Hit It First,” a new track that put his (s)ex Kim Kardashian on blast. We all know that Ray J almost certainly can’t back up that specific claim, but he’s not letting that stop him. Today, he released a 30-second snippet of the song to TMZ; you can listen to it above.
In what is surely the silliest news of the day, Ray J made a surprise announcement this afternoon that he’s got a new single on the way. Dropping April 9, the artwork for “I Hit It First” has got everyone on Twitter wondering who exactly that mystery, pixelated figure on the cover is. We’ll give you one guess!

“I never was much of a romantic,” sang Kanye West on “Runaway,” the centerpiece track on his epic 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Well nonsense, we say! You’re plenty romantic, Yeezy. And here are our favorite love-lorn lyrics from all through your career to prove it. Whether it was inspired by current flame Kim Kardashian, or past lady-friends like Amber Rose or Selita Ebanks, Kanye is a modern poet spinning rhymes that will melt any woman’s heart. Just today he dropped the track “Clique,” in which he raps about Kim’s career-launching sex-tape with Ray-J. And that’s just the start of his many romantic maneuvers in song. Check out the list below and see what we mean!
10. “If we die in each others’ arms/Still get laid in the afterlife”
- “Lost In The World” on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010)
Romance Factor: Here Kanye takes a very practical (and sexy) look at the concept of eternity.
9. “I’m Yeezy, she said, ‘Hi, I’m Maria’/No, you an angel/You wave ‘Hi’ to Aaliyah”
-”Erase Me” on Kid Kudi’s Man On The Moon 2: The Legend Of Mr. Rager (2010)
Romance Factor: Yeezy once again plays on the more practical side of the afterlife, plus gets a sweet shout-out to the late R&B singer.
8. “Feeling like Katrina with no FEMA/Like Martin with no Gina”
-”Flashing Lights” on Graduation (2007)
Romance Factor: It’s not good enough to compare missing your ladylove to a natural disaster/government SNAFU. You have to following it up with a simile referencing the 90s sitcom Martin to really tug at the heartstrings.
7. “Take your diamonds and throw ‘em up like you’re bulimic”
-”Diamonds From Sierra Leone” on Late Registration (2005)
Romance Factor: With one line, Kanye shows that he knows how to treat his woman right, and at the same time so very very wrong.
