Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera Reveal New Lyrics in Divalicious "Do What U Want" Remix

After performing their killer duet live on The Voice last month, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera have turned their "Do What U Want" collaboration into an official single release. (Sorry, Kells!)

Xtina replaces R. Kelly's sexually explicit lyrics with the pains she goes through to put on a great show. Christina growls, "My bones hurt from all the shows / But I don't feel the pain 'cause I'm a pro... / My body belongs to you when I'm on stage!" The pop stars trade off lines for the remainder of the track, drowning the listener in a sea of divalicious belting.

While "Do What U Want" has peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, it's a bit of a disappointment for Gaga's standards. If it can't rise higher, the single will mark Mother Monster's second lowest-charting single ever. To date, her lowest is 2011's "Marry the Night," the fifth single off Born This Way, when listeners were growing a little exhausted of the divisive Gaga album.

Meanwhile, Christina's seen three of her collab tracks go Top 10 since 2011—Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," Pitbull's "Feel This Moment" and A Great Big World's "Say Something."
