Lady Gaga Re-Releasing “Artpop” on CD & Vinyl Without R. Kelly Collab “Do What U Want”

Lady Gaga is reportedly re-releasing her 2013 album <i>Artpop</i> on CD and vinyl, but without the LP’s R. Kelly collaboration, “Do What U Want (With My Body).” The Independent notes that music retailer HMV is taking pre-orders for physical copies of the album that will arrive on November 11–nearly six years to the day after <i>Artpop</i>’s original release on November 6, 2013. Back in January, Gaga apologized for recording with Kelly and vowed to remove “Do What U Want” from all streaming services. “As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and video at a dark time in my life,” she said in a statement after more sexual-misconduct allegations about Kelly came out. “I’m sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner.”
