Well, Happy New Year to all! Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera rang in the new year together as they surprised fans with the official version of their iconic duet from The Voice.
Gaga released the official remix of her #1 single ‘Do What U Want‘ with Aguilera on iTunes as the world celebrated new beginnings in 2014. If you are unfamiliar with this pairing, Christina joined Gaga onstage to perform the track on the finale of her talent show The Voice mid-December, replacing R. Kelly.
Now, following the positive response to their performance and the resurfacing of Kelly’s child-rape past, it appears that Aguilera will be replacing R. Kelly. The overdue video with Gaga and Kelly was shot by Terry Richardson last month but is yet to be premiered, which is fuelling the rumours further and has spectators buzzing at the thought of a video with the two pop divas for the new remix.
Regardless of what becomes the “official version” of the single, this Christina remix is brilliant. There’s a sense of triumph in the track as the two singers hit back at their worst critics together, even more so than the initial performance.
Bring on the video!
