Gaga first premiered "Jewels and Drugs" during the iTunes music festival in September. Now the studio version of the urban track is out. The shuffling hip-hop song with an electronic edge features T.I., Too Short and Twista. Twista, of course, supplies a breakneck speed rap verse. DJ White Shadow is also on board, giving "Jewels and Drugs" a twisted breakdown. This is the second collaboration on "ARTPOP," the first being the R. Kelly-assisted "Do What U Want," and it is a nice change of pace for Mother Monster.

"G.U.Y. (Girl Under You)" was one of the first snippets released from "ARTPOP." A brief preview of the track was released and it sounded very promising. Gaga delivers on the final version of the Zedd-produced track. Over stunning electronic production, Gaga sings, "Let me be the girl under you that makes you cry / I wanna be that guy, g.u.y." She takes control in the bedroom and kills it on "G.U.Y." This is arguably the best song from "ARTPOP" yet.

Lady Gaga's "ARTPOP" album will be released on November 11.
