The Budweiser Made In America Festival isn’t the only major music gathering going on this holiday weekend. Across the pond in London, the iTunes Music Festival went down on Sunday afternoon. All eyes were focused on Lady Gaga, who used the performance to debut songs off her upcoming ARTPOP album due November 11. Along with the title track, the Mother Monster did new records such as “Manicure,” “Swine,” “Sex Dreams,” “I Wanna Be With You,” and “Aura.”

The biggest surprise came with some rap legends, as Too $hort and Twista assisted the pop superstar on the DJ Shadow-produced “Jewels & Drugs.” Also featuring T.I., the Atlanta King couldn’t appear due to travel restrictions. “From across the pond, T.I. They wouldn’t let him into the country, poor thing. Put your hands up, Hustle Gang,” Gaga said as she shouted out the Hustle Gang leader. Word of the record came about from Lady Gaga herself, revealing the news at this year’s MTV VMAs.
