As I was participating in my daily hour-long travel home Wednesday, Lady of the Gagas came blaring through my car radio over the instrumental of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.” Little did I know that Gags and Lamar were slated all along to partner on the hit record, but never came to pass due to album deadlines and late submissions of Lady Gaga’s vocals.
Stefani posted the song accompanied by footage of her trip to Rio and backstage in Columbia a year ago, and yet I am just hearing about now. I need to get my life in order.
The rough cut of the blend is undeniably unexpected, but I love a good mash up of genres, and this one, once properly formatted, does wonders for my spirit. Hell, I even like the unfinished edges of this version. And after the week I’ve had, this may be in heavy rotation until further notice.
Both artists will grace the stage at this year’s American Music Awards November 24 broadcasting live from the Nokia Theatre in L.A.
