A couple of days ago, Kendrick Lamar released the official tracklist for his upcoming debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city. What fans found surprising is that the much talked about Lady Gaga collaboration, "PartyNauseous," was missing from the set.
Originally, people assumed that the track was simply renamed "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe." However, Mother Monster herself released a statement via her official social network site, LittleMonsters.com, saying otherwise. See her explanation of the song confusion below:
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
Damn, we were really looking forward to hearing that collaboration. Hopefully this one materializes in the near future.
