Yes, yes, and yes!
Having hit #13 on iTunes without any form of push, it was overtly clear what Aguilera’s fans and more importantly the general public wanted as the LP’s next offering.
‘Your Body’ may have peaked at a respectable #34 on the Hot 100 (without a single performance to back it, we must add), but with the industry being what it is and Aguilera needing a hit at all-costs, this was not just the right decision but (honestly) the only decision. A decision we’re glad Team Xtina made, as -having done “this” for almost 6 years – we’ve seen many an obvious single choice ignored, ultimately leading to the premature death of many a promising project.
Here’s hoping the Claude Kelly penned cut helps give ‘Lotus’ legs so as to strut towards the upper echelon of the album tally – even if it’s a slow, yet eventual rise.
