Ray J is set to release new single taking a jab at fellow singer Kanye West, who now dates his ex, Kim Kardashian.
The R&B singer who infamously filmed a sex tape in 2007 with the now reality superstar Kardashian, announced Friday he is dropping a new track April 9 entitled "I Hit It First."

Ray J tweeted the new cover art to fans Friday first pointed out by Global Grind to be a blurred out bikini pic of Kardashian from 2008 and also possibly mimicking Kanye West's blurred artwork on "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."
"Check out my new single cover "I Hit It first" available on ITUNES on 4/9 "I Put her On" #KOmusic," he wrote.

According to lyrics obtained by TMZ, some of the choice words allude to the fact that he is singing about his former flame, who is now pregnant with West's baby and whose exes include NFL player Reggie Bush and soon-to-be ex-husband NBA star Kris Humphries.
"She might move on to rappers and ballplayers but we all know I hit it first … But now baby chose to go West," the gossip site reported as some of the lyrics of the ballad.
"Ray J is making a music video featuring a Kim look-alike," according to a TMZ source.
