PARTYNAUSEOUS (Lamar & Gaga) [mp3]

Leaked version of "PARTYNAUSEOUS" by Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga, written and recorded in 2012 to be included on the rapper's album, but later scrapped.

PARTYNAUSEOUS (Lamar & Gaga) [mp3 8MB]
"I apologize to the fans that this situation is confusing," Gaga said. "When I collaborate with an artist I work solely with them, not with their camps or management. It's 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. He's a good kid, it's just sometimes a mad city."

Dancing With The Stars

Today is six whole years since the broadcast of Lady Gaga on Dancing With The Stars, May 19, 2009. The performance featured a unique band of Jae Deal (keys) and Joey Bumpus (drums), who had already played with Gaga before, and Nico Constantine (guitar) and Tommy Kafafian (guitar), who would stay on for the 2009 Fame Ball world tour. Somebody is also pretending to play keytar.
