Christina Aguilera is officially liberated: our favorite songs off her comeback album
We don’t know about you, but we’ve been rubbing the genie’s bottle for years hoping for an entirely new album of Christina Aguilera’s killer vocals. Now, it’s officially official: Our wishes have been granted.
On June 15th, the 37-year-old singer released her first album in six years, titled Liberation. The album features 15 songs (we know you’ve been belting out “Fall In Line” since it’s release), 5 collaborations (shout out to our girl Demi Lovato), and numerous writers and producers (can anybody say Kanye?!), so you know it’s going to be a damn good listen. She began working on the album in 2014 and the end product proves that years and years of life changes and hard work certainly pays off when it comes to creating kickass music.
And while she may have been Stripped before, this time around has an entirely new meaning, as she explained in her feature in Paper magazine: "I'm at the place, even musically, where it's a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”
Xtina, we can certainly appreciate that. From Sick of Sittin’ to Fall In Line, these are the three tracks off her album that are giving us life (and some goosebumps!):
FIRST SONG: Sick of Sittin’
We all know XTina rocks. But in this track, she brings new meaning to the word. Christina sings “I make it a policy not to tell anybody to sit down, I just still encourage everybody else to stand up.” Well...we encourage everybody to bump this track. At the gym, before a date, this song is the perfect pump up with a side of rock ‘n’ roll.
SECOND SONG: Fall In Line
You all knew this was coming. Two of our favorite leading ladies teaming up on one track? Yeah. This is one of our faves. Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato weren’t made to fall in line, but they were definitely made to collab. Put two of the most powerful female voices together and watch the magic unfold.
THIRD SONG: Dreamers
Don’t let Dreamers be one of those filler tracks that you may skip over. It falls between two of our favorite songs and it has a very important message. In this spoken lyric track, children of seemingly all ages express their dreams and passions for what they want to be when they grow up. Doctors, presidents, and of course, bosses. Children are the future and we commend Christina for highlighting this in a very cool way.
