One Song a Week, Said Lady Gaga, So Here's 'Do What U Want' with R. Kelly
R. Kelly could be Gaga's pusha man, apparently
Lady Gaga stayed true to her media-savvy self this morning when she tweeted out a link to her new single with R. Kelly, ‘Do What U Want’. The controversial singer promised fans that she’d release a song a week from now until November 11th when ARTPOP is released.

"You can't stop my voice / 'Cause you don't own my life / But do what you want with my body," Trills Gaga, whose behind can be seen, obscured only by some scant clothing, on the single artwork.
The lyrics seem to refer to both her recent nude photo shoots, and her propensity to address her own status in the music industry. We can’t stop her voice, heart or mind, but we can use her body however we want, according to Gaga. Lady Gaga offered up a taste of "Do What U Want" in a 30-second Best Buy ad for Beats by Dre headphones back on Oct 17th, but she waited until today (Oct 21st) to officially drop the song.
Talking about ARTPOP on Twitter, Gaga said: "FUN FACT about ARTPOP: I sang the songs over and over until they transformed into a part of me. Then we pressed record," and "Each song on ARTPOP was inspired by different types of adrenalin, so it's an expression of the various rushes. I want you to feel them."
R-Kelly on the other hand is having trouble with his new record, ‘Black Panties’. It’s been delayed until December 10th while Kelly gets in there and does some last-minute fine tuning.
