  A Lady Gaga song performed with hiphop performer R. Kelly has been pulled from her 2013 album Artpop on both iTunes and Apple Music.

  The duet Do What U Want (With My Body) was track 7 on the album, which now jumps straight from track 6 to track 8 … Lady Gaga tweeted an explanation in a tweet headed ‘I stand by anyone who has ever been the victim of sexual assault.’

  As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made the song and video at a dark time in my life, my intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn’t processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life.

  Apple Music made the decision last year to cease promoting R. Kelly’s music it its playlist, though the artist’s music remains available on the platform.

  Lady Gaga was one of three artists cited as helping Apple Music hit a new audio streaming record back in 2017.
