Late Wednesday evening, Lady Gaga gave her little monsters and everyone else a treat. Via Twitter, the singer shared “We feel bad about killing your vibe, so here’s the demo you never got to hear. And the chillun in Rio, and backstage in Colombia.” Of course, she’s referencing that fact that while she was originally supposed to appear alongside Kendrick on good kid m.A.A.d city, “artistic difference” led to her being left off. So, after all the fuss, here’s the “LG Mix” of Kendrick’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
Better, worse or who cares? That’s up to each listener. Gaga doesn’t do anything to derail the track’s sound. But something about K.Dot’s croaking sounds more personal thus her vocals too polished to be appreciated, especially after we’ve all been singing along with Kendrick’s joint for weeks now.
