Grimes explains why she isn’t on Lady Gaga’s Chromatica remix album

The musician blames ‘sibling rivalry issues’ with BloodPop for not appearing alongside Arca, Charli XCX, and many more on the upcoming record

In July, Grimes revealed that she was set to appear on Lady Gaga’s upcoming Chromatica remix album, Dawn of Chromatica. “I missed the deadline,” she told fans via her Discord server. “But it got moved back so now we can do my monologue.” Now, however, it seems that we won’t be getting a Grimes remix after all.

In response to a fan question about her Dawn of Chromatica rework on Twitter, the Miss Anthropocene musician says that it still hasn’t been finished, jokingly pinning some of the blame on executive producer BloodPop.

“(BloodPop) and I have sibling rivalry issues and our immaturity lead (sic) to the song not being completed,” she writes. “Also he’s mad at me for taping a picture of myself above his bed and when he removed the picture the tape ripped off the paint. He shud have left it.”

Bloodpop himself continues the thread, writing: “Not completed as in not started, she was too busy making TikToks about the silence of mimes??? Very weird IMO — also it actually left serious dry wall damage as she used duck tape.”

Besides offering to “literally re-paint” BloodPop’s wall, Grimes responds: “U never sent me the track to start! U just said scream in mic and send with no music behind — that makes no sense!”

Despite not getting a Grimes collab on Lady Gaga’s remix record, we are set to hear versions of tracks from a range of hyperpop-adjacent names, including Arca, Ashnikko, Charli XCX, Rina Sawayama, A. G. Cook, Shygirl, Dorian Electra, Bree Runway, and more. Take a look at the full tracklist below.

Grimes has also recently taken to TikTok to ask fans to stop “harassing” her due to her relationship with SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk. “I am not my bf’s spokesperson,” she says, though she does follow that up with a list of his achievements, playing on the app’s “Is he hot or...” trend.

Appropriately, the musician’s next album is set to be a “space opera” about a “lesbian AI romance” (it just won’t be set on Planet Chromatica, presumably).

Lady Gaga’s Dawn of Chromatica remix album will arrive on September 3.
