Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar recently collaborated on a song that was supposed to appear on Kendrick's good kid, m.A.A.d cityalbum. But when the tracklist for the project was revealed fans were surprised to see that it didn't make the cut.
During Kendrick's interview with The Breakfast Club on Thursday he explained why the song titled "Partynausous" wasn't on the album.
"Me and Lady Gaga, we really good friends. She’s not on the album. We got some records, but when I was breaking down the bulk of the album, the ones we picked, we set them aside for future reference," he said. "I already had everything premeditated for this day, for October 22nd."
Lady Gaga also offered an explanation via her website. The pop star said creative differences were ultimately the reason she wouldn't be on the disc.
I apologize to the fans that this situation with Partynausous is confusing. To it clear it up I must explain this. When I collaborate with an artist i work solely with them, not with their camps or management. Its purely organic and creative. I love Kendrick dearly as a friend, but was not willing to compromise musically to the changes his team was making to my music. This is why I am not his record. I have a very specific vision as a producer and songwriter, and I always have. That song will be released at a different time, for a different project. I love you, and think you should check out his stuff because he is truly great. He's a good kid, its just sometimes a mad city. -LG
