Kim Kardashian Returns to Singing After a Decade in ‘Ladies Night Song’ Sketch on ‘SNL’: Watch
Kim Kardashian West showed off her singing chops for the first time in a decade on Saturday Night Live.
During her SNL hosting debut on Oct. 9, the 40-year-old reality TV star and entrepreneur appeared in a skit titled “Ladies Night Song,” in which she hits the nightclub for a much-needed night out with her fellow “grown and sexy ladies.”
It’s the first time we’ve heard Kardashian West sing since her 2011 solo dance-pop single “Jam (Turn It Up).”
“Come on, it’s going to be so much fun. We used to always do this,” Kardashian West’s Trish tells her skeptical friends as they wait in line to enter the club. “Come on guys, let’s go in.”
Dressed in a shiny colorful short dress, her character then rap-sings about being in the VIP while the music is bumping before passing out from fatigue on a nearby couch.
“Grown a– women in the club. Boss a– women in the club. Prolly too old for the club,” Kardashian West and her friends belt out in unison. “Ain’t nowhere to sit in this whole a– club.”
Kardashian West’s Trish later returns, claiming that she wasn’t really asleep. “I know you little girls ain’t laughin’ at me/ For your information, I wasn’t asleep. I was resting my eyes/ Why you worried about me? But now I’m wide awake and –,” she adds before suddenly falling asleep again on the shoulder of a guy at the bar.
After a frustrating evening of painful high heels and stomach issues, the girls decide to call it a night at 9:01 p.m., even though Kardashian West’s Trish is re-energized after two power naps.
Kardashian West’s last foray into music was 2011’s “Jam (Turn It Up),” which some hoped would lead to a full album release. She showcased the single at a 2011 New Year’s party at Las Vegas’ TAO nightclub, and it was released commercially later that year, with proceeds reportedly going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“Jam (Turn It Up)” was widely derided by critics and never appeared on any Billboard radio charts, including the dance charts. Read a full breakdown of the song here.
