PinkPantheress Reveals She Accidentally Missed a Studio Session With Kendrick Lamar

PinkPantheress has learned her lesson: Don’t leave your phone on “do not disturb” because you never know when Kendrick Lamar might come calling.

In her latest i-D cover story that came out Thursday (Nov. 2), PinkPantheress revealed that she was “nearly” featured on a Kendrick track except she missed the studio session because she was at the theater — “I was watching Nightcrawler with this guy,” she explains — and her date asked her to put her phone on silent.

“Oh f—, I can’t even think about it,” PinkPantheress reflects.

She has collaborated with Lamar’s cousin Baby Keem, however. Alongside Don Toliver, PinkPantheress is featured on “killstreaks” from the deluxe edition of Keem’s Billboard 200 top five debut album The Melodic Blue. A month after the deluxe dropped, Keem earned a co-writing credit on Pink’s single “Do you miss me?” from her 2022 EP Take me home, which also featured “Boy’s a Liar” that later spawned the Billboard Hot 100 top five sequel with Ice Spice.

Elsewhere in the i-D cover interview, she talks about her upcoming debut album, Heaven Knows, which is due Nov. 10. “I had to level up, I couldn’t just use loops anymore. I had to get other people to come in,” she says of her previous sample-heavy musical style. Heaven Knows includes features from Rema (“Another Life”), Central Cee (“Nice to Meet You”), Kelela (“Bury Me”) and, of course, Ice Spice (“Boys a Liar, Pt. 2”) as well as previously released singles “Mosquito” and “Capable of love.”
