Do What U Want

Song: Do What U Want
Artist: Lady Gaga feat. R. Kelly

Gaga's fourth album ARTPOP is set for release on November 11th and after the rather slow success of first single "Applause" promotion for the album is starting to ramp up with released snippets, a listening party happening in Berlin tonight, performance on U.K.'s X-Factor, as well as promo singles...

Early this week Gaga released her duet with none other than R. Kelly, the R&B-tinged stomper "Do What U Want" as a promo single leading up to the release of "Venus," the planned second single, which comes next Monday.  "Do What U Want" went #1 in iTunes in over 80 countries... so now it's been shifted to the official second single.

The song is absolutely fantastic and pretty straight-forward for Gaga.  It shows a dipped toe back into R&B, something she hasn't since her debut The Fame.  The inclusion of R. Kelly, initially a head-scratcher, proves rather inspired as he delivers a killer verse and their voices blend perfectly together.  Gaga's vocals, something's she's often overlooked for, really shine here in a very Christina way.

And then there's that single art...
