Christina Aguilera Scores Billboard #1 With ‘Your Body’

christina aguilera your body 1 Christina Aguilera Scores Billboard #1 With Your Body

It’s common-knowledge that Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Lotus’ campaign has been rocked by many a speed-bump.

Indeed, its lead single ‘Your Body’ was never performed, which led to slow album sales, which ultimately resulted in more media muck being hurled at the singer.

However, it appears several positive facets to the project are beginning to emerge – one being the fact that, as of this week, ‘Your Body’ can officially be deemed a chart-topping Billboard hit.

Details below…

The Max Martin produced cut jumped #2-#1 on this week’s Billboard Dance / Club Chart. And while some may scoff at the “relevance” of the said tally, anyone who’s (even a little) versed in PR will know that a Billboard #1 of any sort is still a Billboard #1 – which ever way its spun.

The impressive feat comes in the week the song’s video hit 30 million views on Youtube and when ‘Lotus’ shows evidence of staying power on the album charts. For, according to Hits Daily Double, the LP’s second week run registered an impressive(ly low) 26% drop on its first week figure (75,000) – shifting another 54,119 copies.

It’s imperative to underscore the fact that much of said sales are likely attributable to the album being featured in a $5.99 Black Friday deal at US retailers Walmart and Best Buy. Put simply, the true test of whether the project will ultimately sink or swim will be its performance in the weeks and months ahead.

Thankfully for Xtina, the said period seems to be just what the Promo Dr ordered. Indeed, December 7th sees her perform on ‘Ellen’, while she also features on Blake Shelton‘s upcoming Christmas TV special. Add to this the fact that The Voice coache’s new single ‘Just A Fool’ is officially sent to radio on December 4th, and the tide seems like it’s turning in the 31 year old’s favour.

With The Voice drawing nearer its finale too, here’s hoping Xtina and her team seize any and every promotional opp to ensure ‘Lotus’ maxes out its chart potential. For, echoing earlier sentiments, commercial comeback’s aren’t always as instant as they could or should be. Hence, from our vantage point, Gold certification (500k sold) should be the goal-post here, which -if achieved - creates a sound foundation for Platinum flavoured success with future projects.

Needless to say, we’ll be keeping a close eye on how this all plays out.

    Is it number 1 in the UK or number 1 in te US?? I honestly didn’t see that coming. This song was hardly promoted or played on radios. But I bought the single. It’s a good song. Still disappointed xtina didn’t perform it. Oh well. Lotus is still a flop and a bad album I’m still looking for her to improve live. She’s really falling this era. Team xtina and xtina step ur game up. This is coming from someone who wants to see her succeed.

    Truth is Xtina hasn’t promoted ANYTHING well after “Stripped”. I think she got comfortable, arrogant and lazy. “My true fans will always follow me”…well, they haven’t!

    “Lotus” is quite a good album sans all the screaming, but if she can’t promote to make people believe in her project why should I cough up my coin?

    If she believes in her own hype that much the most she could do was that terribly awkward AMA performance then I think it’s fair to say her best days are behind her. Her image is naff, her voice is too, and although the songs are quite good her voice is so shot it makes it hard to enjoy.

    If only she had Kelly Clarkson’s skills we’d be seeing the new diva-soon-to-come-legend but instead we can’t figure out who she’s appealing to. Die-hard fans? Yes. Former teeny-boppers now in their mid to late 20′s? No. They go after Britney and more serious music like Adele. Young people? Nope. Her weight gain has destroyed that with image conscious America. Adult contemporary? Nope. They like singers with class, not screamers who dress inappropriately.

    Just to add, we know Adele isn’t exactly slim, but do you think Adele’s trying to be the trendy Pop star? Britney, Xtina, Rihanna, Gaga, Katy perry and a few others go for the Pop culture super stardom road and that requires being perfect in nearly every facet of your being! Xtina’s sorely lacking…she’s become irrelevant!

    In all truth though I don’t want to kick a person when/if they’re down. She good at hiding it but I’m guessing she’s in pain after the devastation the last few years have wrought on her. Thankfully she’s remained of drugs and the like, but if she’s to have a career she NEEDS to address the aforementioned as Pop audiences demand perfection!

    I am the same age as Christina and you are wrong in the fact you think everyone goes for Britney because me and all my friends have always gone for Christina, because she puts on a great show, doesn’t lip synch and her msi promotes such positivty and if all the hatrs would actualy listen to her albums they would understand. She is more gorgeous than Britney and if you look at Britney nowadays she has no sole left she is just too medicated.

    unbelievable! finally someone who knows expressing some compassion is not a bad thing. maybe it’s me but i thought christina looked somewhat spirit broken though she smiled the hurt seemed to show through.

    never thought of it but you’re right about her needing to be in good shape if she wants to compete with the kateys and the ke$has rihannas and even the no singing britneys.

    Think once she had her baby nothing else mattered as much. She’ll always love music and appreciate fans but he hustle is soooo not the same.
    Back in the day she kept the largest of large at the time Britney on her toes, so that’s the times I give her most credit.

I think your a flop b**** Keri Hilson Stan but the music industry already dragged her so I don’t have 2. I don’t wanna drag Whitney but I hate fake s*** so I will. She’s dead just like Michael they both died weak drug addicted and in disgrace. They are not my generation and I don’t give to fucks about dead hard drug abusers. I grew up seeing them as addicts nothing more and y’all idolize them why? Because they can sing? Go kill yourself! How it look being damn near 60 and cracked out floating in your tub?

    the media is in love with britney and hate christina. this has always been the case. britney has been terribly overrated since 2003.

    we gotta give it to her fans though, they’re loyal as hell even the ones that know she’s really a talentless has-been.

    they’ll always remind you that britney sold tens of millions of albums in 1999 thru 2003.

    watching her perform in 2008 with mick jagger in the concert movie ‘shine’ christina was really throwing it down. her voice was outstanding, she looked awesome and she strutted that stage like she owned it.

    she still has the strut she just needs to get that voice (or stay in a certain range), fashion and body in check.

    girl you’ve still got it put it out there pleeeze.
