Kim Kardashian is currently holed up in the recording studio with super producer The-Dream, putting the finishing touches on her debut single Turn It Up.

The 30-year0-old, who came to fame via a leaked sex tape before becoming a reality TV sensation with Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is following in the footsteps of fellow socialites Paris Hilton and Heidi Montag by branching into music.

A video clip – starring Kanye West, no less – has already been shot and the song is set to debut on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show in three weeks to coincide with a special episode of her show.

News of Kim’s career change has critics sharpening their knives – see Jimmy Kimmel’s skit below – but the diva in waiting surely has enough cash to come up with something… relatively painless.

Do you think the buxom beauty has what it takes to make the leap to pop stardom?
