When Kendrick Lamar’s tracklisting for good kid, mA.A.d city was released earlier this week, many people were confused about the omission of Lamar’s collabo with Lady Gaga, “Partynauseous”. Meanwhile, Kendrick blamed the absence of the track on not quite fitting in with the rest of his music:
“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,” the West Coast lyricist told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. “I already had everything premeditated for this day, for October 22nd.”
Lady Gaga begs to differ, and released a statement blaming the absence on Kendrick’s meddling camp making changes and compromising her music. Check out Gaga’s statement below:
I apologize to the fans that this situation with Partynauseous 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
Whatever the reason, that’s too bad – that collabo was tight.
