‘I Hit It First’: Ray J Hits UK Charts With Controversial New Cut

Published: Sunday 14th Apr 2013 by David

In what may come as a surprise to ‘Formal Invite’ star Ray J Norwood, his controversial new single ‘I Hit It First’ has flown to unexpected heights after hitting the internet in the earlier part of last week.

For, while initially billed a buzz track for what fans had hoped is a forthcoming album from the singer, the song has proved that the singer’s British audience is anything but dead and- in all fact- is very alive.

Commercial surprises below…

Upon being published two hours ago, this week’s Official Charts have seen Ray nab his first Top 40 in the nation since 2005’s ‘One Wish‘, when ‘I Hit It’ found its way to #39 on the competitive Urban chart.

Outselling Lil Wayne’s ‘Love Me’, A$AP Rocky’s ‘Wild For Night’ and Tyga‘s ‘Dope’, the fiery single-reportedly aimed at Reality TV  Tsarina  Kim Kardashian- impacted the charts without enough units to have almost snatched the #38 spot from J.Cole‘s ‘Power Trip’. 

‘First’s Urban arrival stands as Ray’s first British chart entry this decade, and comes after six years after the release of his last studio album ‘All I Feel’, which peaked at #1 on the US R&B tally and birthed the Yung Berg assisted ‘Sexy Can I’.

      Its just a song for goodness sake!!! dont take it so personal! your acting like its about you!!! He is an artist and many other artist release songs with WAY more explicit lyrics than “HIT IT FIRST” so many you should switch gears and focus on something a bit more harmful! Maybe try lobbing for congress or a cause that is disrespectful and unnecessary!!!

      “HIT IT FIRST”

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (#! DIVA) April 14, 2013

    BEYONCE DIDN’T EVEN RELEASE BOW DOWN/ I BEEN ON TO ITUNES, SO Y’ALL RIHYAWNNA HOBO’S CAN GO JUMP OFF A CLIFF.

  17. Slayrita Legendora April 14, 2013

    I am dying here! To think this turd actually outcharted the so called ‘King’ Beyfossil’s Bow Down. LMAO!!!

    • KELLY April 14, 2013

      Bow Down wasn’t a single. Wasn’t send to radio/itunes. No one has heard the full song yet. You just had to bring up Beyonce. smh

    • King Bey April 14, 2013

      Umm Bow Down/I Been On are 2 songs put together. Therefore its not a single. Get it? Therefore it did not hit itunes! Get it? Therefore no one could outchart it. Get it? Pay attention in school next tim M’kay!

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 14, 2013

        LOL.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 14, 2013

      The KIIIII is that it was never anything but an unpublished MP3 file and it still had much more attention than any FARTA ORAL S** song/single, and would easily outsell her units discography if it was released on iTunes.

    • truuuu April 15, 2013

      the people have spoken!! hit it first !!!!!!!!

  18. Bran_Tee April 14, 2013

    Good song bad message.

    • truuuu April 15, 2013

      good or bad it BANGS!!!!!!!!!! i hit it firsttttttttttt i hitttttt itttttt firsttttt

  19. KELLY April 14, 2013

    Beyonce is forever in their minds and in their mouths.

    I don’t think death will fade her this point.

    This has nothing to do with Beyonce and Bow Down is definitely not a single but yet they can’t stop talking about Beyonce.

  20. . : : h 2 o : : . April 14, 2013

    looool…..ok

  21. Slayrita Legendora April 14, 2013

    The poor Beyfossil stans. They cannot handle her irrelevancy. Rihyodel charted Pour It Up without any promo. Why can’t the self proclaimed King do the same with Bow Down? Rita is going to take her place. She will soon be second fiddle to Slayrita as she currently is to Rihyodel. But then again when was the last time Fossil topped the UK Singles Chart? Oooooop! Guess Slayrita is more relevant. LMAO

    • Tash April 14, 2013

      Look at you NAME though. Joke of the day.

  23. AmbeRussell April 14, 2013

    i dont understand why is there so much hate towards ray j. its not like kim is anything like a saint. s*** she brought it upon herself. anyways, kanye has disrepected amber IN FRONT of wiz.

    • mobwife April 14, 2013

      And that has what to do with Gay J releasing a s** tape he made with his GIRLFRIEND? It’s not like she was just a random chick, they were suppose to be “in love” at the time.What does it have to do with Gay J, 10 years after the fact still talking about the tape he released for a horrible publicity stunt?

    • exactly April 15, 2013

      he sure it!! figure of speech!! LMAO

  24. Tash April 14, 2013

    I never knew bow down was even a full song. The REACH of some people to talk about Beyoncé. Especially when their name is ‘slayrita legendora’ LOOOOOOOOL!

  27. Charlie April 15, 2013

    #39 on the urban chart is like 500 on the mainstream chart, it’s not newsworthy.
