Listen: Gaga Enlists Xtina on New Version of ’Do What U Want’
Happy New Year! There’s a new version of Lady Gaga’s single "Do What U Want" now featuring the one and only, Christina Aguilera.
Mother Monster recently performed the hit track, which originally featured R&B legend R. Kelly, on the finale "The Voice," where Xtina is a coach. The two divas transformed the song into a fabulous run-ridden, sexually heightened jam.
"Celebrate the start of 2014 with the BRAND NEW studio recording of Lady Gaga & Christina Aguilera singing ’Do What U Want"’ available now," Gaga wrote on Facebook.
The original "Do What U Want" peaked on Billboard’s Hot 100 at No. 13.
A few days before the new "Do What U Want" was released, Aguilera tweeted she was working on "something special" and included a photo of her in the studio. According to Wikipedia, the recording session took place in Carly Simon’s Martha’s Vineyard living room.
This is the first time Gaga and Aguilera have performed together - Gaga has previously worked with Beyonce on the songs "Telephone" and "Videophone."
Watch the singers’ "The Voice" performance of the track and listen to the recorded version below. Also listen to the original "Do What U Want" featuring R. Kelly.
