Reality TV star Kim Kardashian released her debut single Jam (Turn It Up) on iTunes last night.

The auto-tuned club track is the handiwork of heavyweight producers The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, who wrote such hits as Single Ladies and Umbrella, but even their reputation wasn’t enough to save the song from a universal roasting by critics.

And it has to be said that Kim’s voice makes Paris Hilton and Heidi Montag sound like Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé in comparison.

In fact, she doesn’t so much sing as talk her way through the song but the lyrics – about partying and looking hot – are fun and the production is very now.

So far Jam (Turn It Up) has performed reasonably well on iTunes. After one day it’s sitting at number 52 in Australia and number 59 in America, with a video starring Kanye West still to come.

Kim may just have the last laugh – but I doubt it.
