Christina Aguilera Scores Billboard #1 With ‘Your Body’

Published: Wednesday 28th Nov 2012 by Sam

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.

  11. PrettigurlrockD Bitchess November 28, 2012

    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.

  12. Christina Aguilera November 28, 2012

    I am CONSTANTLY slaying your faves! Pay homage queens! Without me, the Twinkie factory would’ve shut down!

    • truth(chile i DRAAAAGGGS funky nicki stans hun-TAE to save them from her) November 28, 2012

      just…DEAD chile!!

    • JER November 29, 2012

      DEAD

  13. Matthew Charlery-Smith November 28, 2012

    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!

    • Matthew Charlery-Smith November 28, 2012

      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!

      • JAZMINE SULLIVANS FAN November 28, 2012

        I love Christina since my childhood, but I really agree with the lazy and arrogant adjectives.

    • JRdashing November 28, 2012

      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.

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess November 28, 2012

      Lotus is not a good album compared to her other ones. Very bland.

      • irene46 November 28, 2012

        @ matthew charley-smith…

        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.

      • cocobutta November 29, 2012

        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.

        Right going on YouTube to here her really slay some vocals with Brian Mclost I mean McKnight.

      • cocobutta November 29, 2012

        *hear ooops

  14. Terry November 28, 2012

    PrettigurlrockD, b**** how old are you? I’m 22 Beyonce, Rihanna is my generation not no damn Whitney Houston! Your hiding behind Whitney like others hide behind Adele. 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 f**** 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?

    • JAZMINE SULLIVANS FAN November 28, 2012

      It’s funny you say that Christina is not of your generation and Beyoncé it is. As far as I know, both practically launched their first projects at the same time. So before saying that Christina is not your generation, why don’t YOU go kill yoursef? H**!

    • truth(chile i DRAAAAAGGGSSS funky nicki stans hun-TAE to save them from her) November 28, 2012

WHITNEY ON DRUGS AND MIKE ON DRUGS SHITS ON YOUR WHOLE ENTIRE GENERATION!!! I WOULD GIVE UP RIHANNA BEYONCE AND LADY GAG KATY PERRY JUST TO HAVE WHITNEY AND MJ BACK!!! SO F*** YOUR DISRESPECTFUL ASS C***!!!

  15. Nichole November 28, 2012

    ::Yawn::

    An irrelevant chart to be honest.

    What TGJ need to be discussing is how Scream and Shout with Will.i.am, and Britney has skyrocked to #2 on US iTunes with no music video.

    • diob November 28, 2012

      @NICHOLE but Will.I.am and britneys song is all over the tv. I cant turn a channel without hearing it. Its called PROMO. A song doesnt have to have a video to sell. We all know Scream and shout is a terrible song. so I dont really care.

    • wrinkle flop ora November 28, 2012

      50 cent went number 1 in 12 hours.

    • JRdashing November 28, 2012

      The new Will I am song and Brit song just shows how bad the music industry is becoming….ITS Horrible with so much auto tune. Christina is a true artist and her music promotes such positivity. Its so sad how the media only concentrates on her weight rther than the awsome music she makes…Christinas the best hands down!!!

      • irene46 November 29, 2012

        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.

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess November 28, 2012

      EXACTLY. I’m frustrated with her this era. All the smart ones seem to get the hint that only promotion is the key if u are not a current popstar of the generation like katy, rihanna, or adele. SMH at her.

  27. maka November 28, 2012

  29. irene46 November 29, 2012

    christina sold 73,000 albums the 1st week not 75000. selling 54,119 the second week is not too bad of a drop at all. hope the holidays help maintain the flow.

    • irene46 November 29, 2012

      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.
