Lady Gaga, R. Kelly song removed from streaming services

Singer Lady Gagas collaboraSinger Lady Gagas collabora tion with rapper R. Kelly has  been removed from streaming services. The song, Do What U Want (With My Body), was removed approximately 18 hours after Gaga tweeted her apology for working with Kelly, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, as featured in last week’s Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, reports a website. Official videos for the 2013 song have been removed from YouTube as well, although the provocative American Music Awards performance that year, which nodded to Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe’s sexual relations with President John F. Kennedy, remains. That clip is the property of ABC, which broadcast the show, and not Gaga’s label, Interscope Records. Do What U Want entered the Top 20 on iTunes in the time between Gaga’s tweet and the song’s removal, although download sales have plummeted in the wake of streaming’s rise and a song can climb the chart swiftly; streaming data was not available at press time.
