The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star – who released a single, ‘Jam (Turn it up)’ in 2011 – has been having vocal coaching and songwriting lessons and will be enlisting the help of her husband, Kanye West, when she enters the recording studio.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Kim has told pals she’s keen to be taken seriously as a vocal artist. Kanye will advise on the project, which he’s given his full backing.
‘She’s started vocal coaching and songwriting lessons and set up meetings with record companies.’
It seems Kim – who has 12-month-old daughter North with Kanye – has had a change of heart as she previously vowed never to make music again following her chart flop.
She previously said: ‘No, I’d never [make another single], that was just for fun, and for charity.’
Asked whether the ‘Mercy’ rapper might get her to collaborate with him on a hip-hop track in the future, Kim said: ‘No, as good as I think he is, it’s just not my thing.’
However, it could be the ‘Bound 2‘ hitmaker behind her plans to return to making music as the brunette beauty admitted in the past it was Kanye who encouraged her to record ‘Jam (Turn it up)’.
She said: ‘I’m not a singer, this isn’t what I do. I have too much other stuff going on’.
‘I thought ‘Is this really something safe for me to do?’ Kanye was actually one of the people who really talked me into doing it and telling me, like, ‘Hey, look, what do you guys do for fun? You guys go shopping, you go to the movies. Kind of step into our world for a second and have fun, and we go to the studio.’ I’m just doing it for fun.’
