After previewing the track in an ad for Dr. Dre's Beat headphones last week, Lady GaGa releases "Do What U Want" in full. Featuring a guest vocal from R. Kelly, the up-tempo and electronic track was co-produced by GaGa and Paul Blair a.k.a. DJ White Shadow.
In the song, GaGa repeatedly tells her duet partner to do what he wants with her body. "You can't have my heart/ And you won't use my mind but/ Do what you want with my body," GaGa sings. R. Kelly then responds, "Do what I want with your body/ Back of the club, taking shots, getting naughty/ No invitations, it's a private party."
Prior to dropping the new song, GaGa launched a series of Twitter rants and addressed some negative things about her. She made a reference to the chart battle between her "Applause" and Katy Perry's "Roar", writing, "APPLAUSE didn't DEBUT AT #1 KATY [PERRY] IS BETTER THAN HER!...I write for the music not the charts."
She also referred to her drug use, tweeting, "LADY GAGA IS ON DRUGS! HER CAREER IS OVER! (been an addict for 10years) #WriteWhatUWant My recovery is a daily battle."
"Do What U Want" is released as a promotional single off GaGa's upcoming album, "ARTPOP". The Mother Monster will release "Venus", the follow-up to lead single "Applause", later this month.
