Reality star Kim Kardashian has reportedly locked in Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West to appear in an upcoming Hype Williams-directed music video.
Details on the hook-up landed across the Internet Wednesday (December 29) evening.
Kanye West teamed up with Kim Kardashian and Hype Williams for a music video shoot in L.A. yesterday (December 28) -- but it wasn't for his own album ... it was all for Kim's upcoming single. Sources connected to the video tell us ... Hype -- the most famous music video director on the planet -- spent hours working with Kim and Kanye during a secret closed set shoot. As we previously reported, Kim is working on an entire studio album with super-producer The Dream -- but it's unclear when the world will finally get a chance to hear KK's voice. (TMZ)
R&B singer Ciara recently opened up about lending support for Kardashian's music career dream.
"I told her if she needs me, I'm here," Ciara said in an interview. "She really, really is fascinated with the music-video process and stuff like that. She's a very, very glamorous girl. She really loves that whole idea, and so she joked about [it] like, 'I wanna shoot a music video ... but I don't want people to take it too serious. I would just like to have fun with it.'" (MTV)
Reports of a rumored Kardashian album in the works emerged on the Internet last month.
She has conquered the world of reality television and has established a successful empire of celebrity endorsements, but is Kim Kardashian reaching to far with her latest project? Kim has been in the studio working on a new album. Could Kanye West have a role in Kim's musical collaboration? Khloe Kardashian recently addressed rumors about Kim's intriguing relationship with the "Runaway" singer. "No, they are just friends," Khloe revealed last week while attending the Lakers game in Los Angeles. While there is nothing romantic going on between Kim and Kanye, there is always the possibility that the two stars have a new professional collaboration in the works. (Examiner)
