Xtina Is Ready To Grow Up And Move On
The singer is moving on from a divorce and an album that was considered a flop. So this time, she is ready to show her fans her new stronger self.
Christina Aguilera has been through a lot for her 31 years. She has been in the music industry since she was a child, and she recently split from her husband of five years.
According to the singer, her new album will be similar to a "rebirth." She told Lynn Elber with The Associated Press it will express "everything I've experienced up until this point," which includes her divorce.
"Aguilera and Jordan Bratman were married for five years before they split in 2010. They have a 4-year-old son, Max," said Elber. But Aguilera said she is ready to move on from her past, and she'll be showing it in the new album.
"I'm embracing many different things, but it's all feel-good," she said, according to Billboard.
Beyond that, the album is pretty much up in the air. Although she tells Elber it will be "superexpressive" and "supervulnerable," it still has no release date or title. But she is working with some of her current Voice co-mentors.
"Her new album's first single, 'Your Body,' was produced by Max Martin, who also produced Aguilera's last hit, the Maroon 5 smash 'Moves Like Jagger,' where she was featured," said Billboard.
Cee Lo Green will also appear on the album.
"I'm one that likes to collaborate. I love feeding off the creative energy, and it only makes me better," she told Rolling Stone earlier this summer. "All-around, it's my goal to better myself as a person and an artist, and the show is one of those contributing factors, and the guys are great friends at this point. It's fun collaborating with them at this point."
Aguilera's last album was released just two years ago but only sold 331,000 copies, according to Billboard. That number may seem high for many musicians, but it is the only album Aguilera has ever released that did not go platinum.
Aguilera will perform "Your Body" on The Voice on Sept. 17.
