Did you know that Kim Kardashian inspired lyrics on Kanye West’s “Lost in the World”?
The makeup mogul took to Twitter on Sunday (Nov. 22) to celebrate 10 years since the release of her rapper husband’s seminal album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. “For those that don’t know the story behind ‘Lost In The World’…” she shared alongside a black-and-white photo of the power couple before continuing the tale.
“Kanye couldn’t come up with some of the lyrics but then realized he had then in a poem he had written me that was my birthday card he gave me for my 30th birthday,” she shared. “He took the poem he wrote me and made it the song. I keep everything!”
Kardashian uploaded a photo of the card, which features a drawing West made of the duo, and a poem which appears on the song. “You’re my devil, you’re my angel / You’re my Heaven, you’re my Hell / You’re my now, you’re my forever / You’re my freedom, you’re my jail / You’re my lies, you’re my truth / You’re my war, you’re my truce / You’re my questions, you’re my proof / You’re my stress and you’re my masseuse,” the prose reads.
MBDTF debuted atop the Billboard 200 on Dec. 11, 2010 and produced four top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest of which was “Runaway” (No. 12).
