"I've been in touch with him since ["National Anthem."] He travels a lot, but whenever he's in town... I'll come down to the studio and hear what he's working on and just do background vocals on his tracks, Del Rey told Zane Lowe. "I'll just do background vocals on a lot of his tracks. We kinda do them and forget them."
Del Rey has never collaborated with Playboi Carti before.
