FUSE TV - Rick Ross Hops on Incredible Remix of Lady Gaga's "Do What U Want"

Great news: Rick Ross' remix of Lady Gaga's R. Kelly duet "Do What U Want" surfaced today. While the track itself shouldn't come as a total surprise (she tweeted about it last month), the fact that it's much better than the already-awesome original version is shocking.

First off, the intro is totally new. And even when Gaga comes in for the first verse, things are different in very good way. LG's vocals reach new levels of fierce, and the updated groove is so delicious it will induce embarrassing head bobs or booty shakes.

When the song is in full swing, you feel transported to the hottest Miami club circa 1986: There's glitter dropping from the balcony, overflowing drinks and bountiful G-strings. It's nostalgic, banging, sex-freaky and new all at the same time. It's a 2013 ode to another era of synth R&B.

Considering Rick Ross was the big bill for this remix, his verse oddly adds very little to the song as a whole. It almost feels like an afterthought.

Speaking of Ross, it's an interesting move on Lady G's part to pluck two collaborators who are not exactly beloved by women's rights groups for such an innately erotic song. 

We got the idea Gaga was being meta in her hyper-sexual SNL performance with Kelly, so perhaps she's further exploring societal archetypes with the remix? Or maybe she was just out to make an infectious club track that oozes sexuality. If her intention was the latter, job well done.
