Many artists throughout their careers have wanted to experiment in different environments such as acting, singing or dancing, trying new projects, and risking going out of their comfort zone. However, some of them have not been very successful, here we share 5 artists who wanted to make their musical careers but failed terribly.

During 2010 Kim released her song “Jam (Turn it Up)” along with a music video. The subject was harshly criticized and also left the Kardashian a bit ridiculous as it was described as one of the worst ideas she has had. Fortunately, the proceeds of this failure were used for something as they were donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

2. Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett released two albums during 2008 and 2009. One was a solo project and the other was done in collaboration with her friend Pete Yorn. Since 2009 he has not released any more albums, apparently, he got the hint that he is definitely acting, but he has been part of soundtracks like “The Jungle Book Sing” taking advantage of his voice.

3. Kobe Bryant

The late athlete Kobe Bryant was not only a basketball legend, he also won an Oscar and even wanted to dabble in music, the latter project without good results. He had a rap group called CHEIZAW with whom he released a single called “KOBE” released in 2000. The song itself was a flop and the album they were planning was canceled. Bryant later wanted to have an independent discography but withdrew.

4. Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis was another actor who thought he would do well in music. His first album, The Return of Bruno, was released in 1987 and featured collaborations from musicians such as The Pointer Sisters and The Temptations. Despite reaching number 14 on the Billboard chart, it seems like it was only a passing success. He released a couple more albums before quitting.

5. Ryan Gosling

The heartthrob actor Ryan Gosling released an album with his friend Zach Shields in 2009. The material showed his musical talent but nothing happened, it was until La La Land (2016) that he took advantage of his singing skills.
