Kendrick Lamar Collaboration With Lady Gaga Delayed

By Carter Maness

After Lady Gaga went, well, publicly gaga for Los Angeles rapper Kendrick Lamar at the Pitchfork Music Festival in July, it was only a matter of time before the two embarked on a collaboration. And indeed, it’s going down and was supposed to drop September 6, but fans will now have to wait a little longer to hear the results.

Entitled “PartyNauseous,” the song will appear on Lamar’s much-anticipated major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city. The album’s current release date is October 2, and it looks like Interscope is trying to make some inter-label magic by pairing the two highly-unique artists together.

For Gaga, it’s her first major hip-hop collaboration since 2009′s “Chillin” appeared on Wale’s official debut. Her fanbase, which is about as diehard as it gets, had the post-Labor Day date set on their calendars and she issued an apology earlier today (August 23).

“Im REALLY sorry to the fans,” she tweeted. “Record w Kendrick won’t be out on the 6th i’m SO SORRY its not my album, i don’t control dates, but stay tuned!”

Gaga recently explained the origin of the song, writing that it’s about her relationship with the country of Jakarta. “Once @kendricklamar + I started talking about life + his forward thinking views about love + hip hop, the song became something more.”

It’s currently unknown if Lamar will return the favor and appear on Gaga’s upcoming 2013 album ARTPOP.
