Lady Gaga's 'Do What U Want' Hits The Web: Listen

Lady Gaga - "ARTPOP"

Lady Gaga has dropped “Do What U Want,” a new collaboration with R Kelly that sounds like it grew in a time-capsule planted in the ‘80s.

Produced by Paul “DJ White Shadow” Blair and Gaga, the radio-friendly track is accompanied with a pop du jour piece of artwork – a butt-in-a-thong snap, presumably belonging to the Mother Monster herself. Gaga is in good form as she channels the throaty, sassy vocals of Christina Aguilera.

“Do What U Want” will appear on Gaga’s hugely anticipated new studio album “ARTPOP,” due Nov. 11. The track also also gets a push in the TV spot for Beats Studio Headphones.

Gaga has been pushing the envelope as she builds the hype for “ARTPOP”. The pop star recently revealed promotional art for the song, which featured Gaga stark naked, with only moss covering her body. The "thong" artwork first appearsed online last Friday.
