Lady Gaga's 'Do What U Want' Featuring R. Kelly Removed from Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify

On Jan. 9, Gaga issued a statement about her 2013 collaboration with Kelly, “Do What U Want,” and wrote that she intended to “remove this song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms…”
As of 10 p.m. ET on Jan. 10, “Do What U Want,” featuring Kelly, had been removed from the U.S. iTunes Store, and is no longer part of the tracklist of its parent album, Gaga’s ARTPOP. The album is also currently unavailable to purchase in the store, though the rest of its tracks are available to buy individually.
Earlier on Jan. 10, “Do What U Want” had climbed back into the top 15 of the U.S. iTunes Stores’ Top Songs list, which ranks the most-bought songs of the moment.  
Further, the track is no longer available to stream via the U.S. Apple Music service, nor is it playable via Gaga's official YouTube channel. 
On both Apple Music and in the iTunes Store, fans can still stream and purchase an alternative version of “Do What U Want,” which features Christina Aguilera instead of R. Kelly and different lyrics.
