While a number of Kendrick Lamar fans were eager to hear the collaborative track that paired him up along side pop-star Lady Gaga, upon reviewing the recently revealed tracklist for Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, many may have noticed that she was missing from the album altogether. Taking to her personal website, Gaga addressed her little monsters on the matter and shared the following statement:
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
