“The girls and I just played the groove while Kendrick rapped over it [soundcheck],” Ford says during an interview with Rolling Stone. “We just went over it once, but it was awesome. He jumped right in and it was almost like the verse was made while we created the song.”
The song they rehearsed, “PretzelBodyLogic,” was not the one that they ended up performing during the stream, Ford explains.
“We performed ‘Pretzel,’ and he didn’t even come onstage,” says Ford. “But Prince called him up on the song ‘What’s My Name’ and he jumped right in like a pro. He just knew how to work on his toes and make the song match up. It vibed really well and we were all really hyped afterward.”
Prince recently released Plectrumelectrum with 3rdEyeGirl and Art Official.
