The record was originally set to be a released as an EP, but the rapper later decided to create a full-length album to let himself be more vulnerable and address “more emotional things that I would probably not want to say in fear of looking less cool,” Miller told Billboard.

The rapper added, “I really like love as a concept. On the last album, I realized there’s no love songs, and I wanted to do a project based around that.”

Regarding his latest single “My Favorite Part,” which features Grande, Miller said, “I wanted a foundation to paint on, something very simple with her.” He added that working with Grande “is a lot of fun.”

Other collaborators on the eclectic project include Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla $ign, Anderson .Paak and CeeLo Green. “I love people doing things they don’t normally do,” Miller said. “Conversation is the most important ingredient. Everyone that I’ve worked with on the album has been able to get there with me.”

Miller debuted and performed The Divine Feminine in its entirety on Monday as part of AT&T and Audience Network’s latest concert series, which will air Sept. 30 on DirecTV and U-Verse.
