Iggy Azalea laid down a rap for Demi Lovato’s “Kingdom Come” without listening to it.
We’re not sure that’s something to boast about, but Lovato admits her best friend and latest musical collaborator Miss Iggy Iggs sent over her contribution to their song together without hearing it first. That means she’s either insanely talented, or so generic any rap would fit.
“When we finally made the decision of which songs were making the album I said ’OK I want her on this one.’ So I called her and was like, ’Hey will you do a song?’,” Demi told MTV. “And she’s like, ’Yeah sure I’ll go into the studio tonight.’”
“I was like, ’Do you want to hear it first?’ She’s like ’No it’s cool,’” Demi said, adding that her verse “fit perfectly.” “I’m like you’re an amazing friend and I love you.”
“I was a fan of her before we were friends, so I feel like I knew what it would sound like,” she said. “And I was just excited to hear it back, it was so much more than I even expected.”
Lovato confirms she wasn’t surprised with Iggy’s rap in the slightest. We know what she actually means, and perhaps throwing on a rap onto someone else’s song without an idea of how it flows is standard. Wasn’t she the least bit curious? We’re trying, OK?
Demi said of the song to Billboard ahead of her VMA performance with Iggy, “It sounds awesome, and I’m really excited for everyone to hear it. She was really excited too — she was like, ‘I’m really excited with where your music is going.’ And to me, that meant a lot, because before I even knew Iggy I was a big fan, and so it was really cool to hear her say that. Our sounds really meshed well.”
