Let’s say she does what Taylor is doing & does an ARTPOP 10th Anniversary Box Set, with Act l & Act ll, would you want Do What U Want included, but a Gaga’s Version? I’m hoping it’s included in some way. :enigma:

was it ever specified which lyrics R Kelly is still credited for in the solo version?

I always assumed she recorded the solo version we have before he was ever brought in but that wouldn't make sense for his credits then

Honestly just let it go lol at the end of the day it’s a great song but if I were her and I’d written so many songs in my career I’d be like “and I will write another” and keep it moving

No. It has to stay buried. Releasing a solo version would only bring attention to the R Kelly mess again. This time around the gp might find the music video leaks and performance. Cancelation of the year me thinks. :poot:

DWUW is a highlight of ARTPOP and definitely deserves to be celebrated for its anniversary - it’s really a shame the song and its meaning was tarnished by R Kelly.

A solo version would be most welcome but we at least have the Christina Aguilera version (which should have replaced the R Kelly version on the album back in 2019 instead of being completely removed imo).

Nah I truly never cared much for the song in general anyway. I always thought it felt very out of place on ARTPOP in that it was self-aware, but in the wrong context. To be perfectly honest with you it almost feels like it belongs on The Fame, but let me not get the girls too riled up :traumatica:

edit: I am not saying it’s a “bad” record or that me disliking it is the reason it belongs on The Fame :sis:

I am glad I have a purchased copy of ARTPOP (despite how I feel about it) so I can continue to listen to DWUW as it was released because it is a spectacular song.

The solo version was the intended version and the only version that existed until around the time of Applause's release, when R Kelly was suddenly brought in

He has that credit because the duet is the original version that was registered & released, and that credit also exists on the Xtina version
