Demi Lovato: Iggy Azalea Didn't Hear 'Kingdom Come' Before Recording Verse

BFFs Demi Lovato and Iggy Azalea didn't just collaborate for a surprise performance at this year's MTV VMAs, the two also have a new song together, "Kingdom Come," on Lovato's new album Confident. Though the collaborative track has yet to make its way into the world officially, in a new interview "Cool for the Summer" singer Lovato revealed that before recording her part on the track, Azalea had never even heard the rest of the song!

Speaking to MTV, Lovato mentioned her friendship with Azalea as a reason for enlisting her as the sole featured artist on her fifth studio album. She also noted that the creative process for the track was rather unique; Azalea spat her verse without even needing to listen to the rest of "Kingdom Come."

"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?' And she's like, 'Yeah sure I'll go into the studio tonight," Lovato said. "I was like, 'Do you want to hear it first?' She's like 'No it's cool.' I'm like you're an amazing friend and I love you."

Though going in to a new song blindly could have ended disastrously for "Kingdom Come," Lovato admitted that the two pop stars' sounds meshed together "perfectly." "I was just excited to hear it back, it was so much more than I even expected," she said."

"Kingdom Come" will arrive when Confident hits stores on Oct. 16. And this won't be the first time that Lovato and Azalea dropped new music together; the two collaborated for a "Cool for the Summer" remix at the VMAs.
