Music royalty Kylie Minogue almost collaborated with another music legend: Prince.
The Australian singer recently sat down with Zane Lowe on Apple Music to promote her upcoming album ‘Disco,’ where she talked about the missed collaboration.
Her words below:
“Well, I had an almost dream come true, which was with Prince. We just kind of hung out. I don’t even know what that means, but we hung out and he kind of put me on the spot a bit. He was like, ‘So where are your lyrics?”
After some back and forth between the two singers, Prince sent his driver to Minogue’s apartment with a tape.
“There’s a cassette in my hand with Prince singing, a song called ‘Baby Doll,’ that I kind of was involved with, but he who slept four hours a night or something and just created stuff the rest of the other 20 hours. That was my almost, we didn’t record it.”
As for how close the effort got to the studio treatment, Minogue revealed:
“I suggested it to my label and I think he would want it to do it all and they weren’t into that. That was that. I might’ve been kind of gutsy, but I wasn’t… I don’t know. I wasn’t sure enough of myself to say, ‘No.'”
Ahead if ‘Disco’ dropping tomorrow (November 6), check out the full interview below:
We certainly would have loved this collaboration. How about you?
