Lady Gaga Drops Unreleased Track + Video With Kendrick Lamar – ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ [Video]
Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar were supposed to have a song on his 'Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City' album but the timing never worked out. Now Gaga has released a homemade video and the audio for 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe' as the collaboration that never was.
Gaga explained in a note to fans on her site what happened.
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 on 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."
Since a Gaga-less version showed up on Kendrick's album, I'm guessing that the song will just be an internet track for now. Check it out and let us know if you think Gaga makes the song better than the version on the album.
