Gone are the days when Lady Gaga creates music with a message…sort of. Previous albums like “Born This Way” were filled with songs to “inspire” her fans aka Little Monsters. But this time around, Gaga has expressed that this album is a party from start to finish. “It’s my intention for you to have a really good time,” she expressed in a KISS FM interview.
Slated for release on November 11, ARTPOP, Gaga’s fourth album, has given us “Applause” and now “Do What U Want” ft R. Kelly.The track has an infectious beat that makes you just want to do a few body rolls and break out into a hustle.
It used to be that Gaga would sing to her Little Monsters about being comfortable with who they are. Now, she sings for herself with lyrics like “write what u want, say what u want about me if you’re wonderin’ know that I’m not sorry” and “u can’t have my heart and u won’t use my mind but do what u want with my body.” Not to mention, she teased the new song on Twitter shutting down her haters by saying ARTPOP is for music, not the charts.
“Do What U Want” has a retro feel but infuses R&B and Pop production elements for a track that introduces a new-ish side to Gaga.
Well, Gaga. Do you, boo! It’s working for me!
