Lady Gaga’s single “Do What U Want” features R. Kelly, but the singer teamed up with a fellow female artist to bring a new life to the ARTPOP track.
Gaga and Christina Aguilera have released a studio version of the song they sang together on iTunes. Just after the clock struck midnight on New Year’s, Gaga tweeted a link to the song.
“Here's 'Do What U Want feat. Christina Aguilera' STUDIO Version,” she wrote, adding, “pink champagne, gold lame, hair, and fearlessness.”

The Hollywood Reporter notes the two powerhouse vocalists joined forces on the stage of NBC’s The Voice last month. They sang the Gaga/R. Kelly song much to the surprise of fans and viewers.
The original song has been on the Billboard Hot 100 list for nine weeks now, peaking at No. 13. Gaga and R. Kelly made headlines back in November when they put on a risqué performance of the song on Saturday Night Live.
