Speaking about the song when it was scrapped three years ago, Gaga posted on fan site Little Monsters: “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.

“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.”

Around the same time, Lamar spoke of his admiration for Lady Gaga by describing her as a “beautiful person”.

Speaking to MTV, the rapper waxed lyrical about the pop star and also claimed that she has a “genius mind” following their collaboration on the track ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe’, which Gaga leaked onto the internet.

Lamar, who also praised Gaga for being a “free spirit in the studio”, said: “It’s just great to be around people that inspire you from another genre, you know. In fact, it’s even bigger for her to respect hip-hop music the way she does, true hip-hop music, so much respect to her.”
