    Do What U Want ft R.Kelly - NEW 2nd single from ARTPOP

    So...yeah!

    Lady Gaga ‏@ladygaga 36m
    However we are overwhelmed by the worldwide response + excitement for DO WHAT U WANT feat. R KELLY & are happy to announce it as 2nd Single!

    She also tweeted that Venus is still being released Monday. Based on this song's success (#1 in 83 countries is the current total), it makes sense from a business / commercial standpoint. This all reminds me of when Edge of Glory was released and totally out-shined Judas. It was rushed out as the next single.

    I imagine a video is imminent, as well as an X-Factor performance she confirmed. I'm excited to hear her do this live! Those vocals will be worth it.

    Good question. I imagine she'll shift gears to Do What U Want, since it's number 1 on the UK iTunes chart.

    (Plus, I'd love to see her sing a song like this while Sharon sits front row...)

    Yeah, that would make sense if it's taken off that well.

    I've already seen some of the tabloids trying to stir up drama between Gaga and Sharon ahead of the appearance.

    Don't worry monsters! We are still scheduled to release #Venus this Monday with a snippet on Friday! AND it will STILL have its own video!

    So Venus is going to be released with a video but not be a single?

    If that's the case I wouldn't mind, I just hope she doesn't on plan on it being a single at some point. I think it's a good move to make this the second single because it has been really well received, and beat Applause's first sales by a long shot.

    I think the following scenarios are likely RE: "Venus" -

    1) "Do What U Want" smashes and she releases "Venus" as the 3rd, official single with the video
    2) "Do What U Want" falls fast and she rush releases "Venus" as a single

    This could also be a case of the Venus video never being released. If the more urban, R&B sound is what she wants to push for this album, they may want something similar to follow "Do What U Want." We'll see! The more videos, the better.

    Seems "Venus" will be the official third single after all. Back to back since she's still planning on releasing it on Monday.

    I cannot stop listening to this song, I loved it from first listen (which is rare for me)!
    When pianos try to be guitars...out of my black and white world

    I can't stop listening to this song either. Between my bf and I our count shows we've listened to it 153 times since its release….so addicting!!!! There's something about it….pop perfection! If this song doesn't make it to #1 on billboard then there's something wrong with the world..haha

    Uggh...I really wish R. Kelly weren't involved, but this is the best song I've heard from this album so far and I think it will be a hit. It's pretty good.

    It is GREAT! I hate that R. Kelly is on it too, but it is so infectious! It sounds like Glass Candy's Digital Versicolor at the beginning and then becomes this empowered sound that I just can't get enough of. SO excited for the album...
