Lady Gaga - Do What U Want (Remixes)

Due to some unexpected behind the scenes issues with her management, the release of the remixes and the video were put on hold, however, it appears that those issues have been resolved. Dance mixes by DJ White Shadow, Kronic, Samantha Ronson, Steven Redant (with and without Amp Lexvas) will be released on February 25.

DJ White Shadow's remix is at a similar tempo as the original and has the R. Kelly vocals. This has fun 80s vibe. Kronic's EDM heavy mix is a tad noisy, however, it includes some additional vocals not heard in the other versions. Samantha Ronson's mix is interesting, however, it lacks cohesion. Steven Redant delivers 3 different mixes that include the Christina Aguilera vocals. His Madrid mixes are more mainstream while the Barcelona mix is more suited for peak hour. The third mix with Amp Lexvas is in an Inner City throwback style complete with those "Good Life" keys. It is also at a lower tempo, allowing the vocals to sound a little less frenzied. The separation of some of the ad libs and backing vocals adds nicely to the mix.
