Weeks after Lady Gaga was spotted in Chicago checking out a performance by rapper Kendrick Lamar, a Dr. Dre protege and fellow Interscope artist, she's announced that she and the rapper have cooked up a song together.
"I am so excited to announce that a record I've been working on has now become a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar for HIS ALBUM," Lady Gaga reveals on Facebook. The single is called "PARTYNAUSEOUS," and will be released on September 6, Gaga writes.
Explaining the origins of the collabo, Gaga tweets, "I wrote 'PARTYNAUSEOUS' about Jakarta, [Indonesia], and my relationship with that country. Wishing I could 'get high with the enemy' and make peace."
Back in May, Lady Gaga canceled her show in Jakarta, Indonesia out of concern for her fans after she received threats from religious fundamentalists who opposed her sexy image. In another tweet, Gaga writes, "Once Kendrick + I started talking about life + his forward thinking views about love + hip hop, the song became something more."
Kendrick replied to her, writing, "definitely became something more. Personal on both ends."
Earlier, there had been reports that Eminem would also be appearing alongside Gaga and Kendrick on a track, but Em's manager Paul Rosenberg seemed to deny the rumor.
"PARTYNAUSEOUS" will appear on Kendrick's upcoming debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, due out on October 2.
