“I wanted to get her blessing, so I played FaceTimed and played for her because I didn’t want her to be blinded by it or to feel like she was creepy or anything like that,” he said.
“That she said,‘ Yo, I hate that. I don’t want it to come out, it wouldn’t come out, “Harlow explained before revealing Lipa’s reaction to the song. “She said,‘ Oh, I don’t think that’s my song. I guess it’s okay. ‘ She was simply rejected and she just let it go. ”
He went on to say that the two artists have been talking since then and that the conversations are now “less awkward”. “Be good. We’ll see how the record goes. I think when the song comes out, she’ll appreciate it even more,” Harlow explained.
The song includes lyricsDua Lipa, I try to work with her more than I make a film”But Harlow insisted the song was written because he“ admires ”it.
