Christina Aguilera’s ‘Lotus’ Goes On Sale For $1.99 / TGJ Weighs In

Published: Saturday 16th Mar 2013 by David

We won’t lie.

Upon hearing Christina Aguilera‘s latest LP ‘Lotus’ weeks before its November 9th release, we were sure it’d go on to become one of the year’s mega sellers, shifting numbers moved by the likes of Pink‘s ‘The Truth About Love‘.

Unfortunately, for reasons we hope to one day learn of, Christina’s promotion of the release did not live up to the album’s worth resulting in what many fans are accurately billing a commercial slow burner. An album, that though packing enough hits to dominate a number of radio formats, was never given the opportunity to truly fly.

That is…until now.

Details below…

For $1.99, music lovers can now get their hands on their own copy of ‘Lotus’ via a discounted price whipped up by the guys over at Amazon.

Of course, with 220,000 units sold since November, many see this new price as the fresh pair of legs the LP needs to reach higher ground, as to avoid being labelled ‘a flop’.

To others, this new price stands as a cheap ploy to generate sales of an album that was both poorly promoted while the likes of Alicia Keys’Girl On Fire’ and Pink’s ‘Truth‘ were given ample opportunity to soar both home and away.

The way we see it, this new price may see the album open its doors to casual listeners who would have no real incentive to buy it at full price- and if impressed with that they here, will be more inclined to pay attention to future releases from the soprano.

In short, Amazon‘s discount could be the seed RCA uses to sew Brand Aguilera into as many playlists as possible, even if it does come at the risk of her status as one of the industry’s cash cows.

For, with gems like ‘Just A Fool’, ‘Blank Page’ and ‘Let There Be Love‘, we think selling it this for much for a limited time is the perfect way to introduce more of the world to songs they otherwise would never had heard of.

Songs, that boast a voice, quality and genuine emotion that transcend chart pressure, and will no doubt move anyone who takes them to give them a listen.

    Lol this is a straight flop…due to almost no promotion i actually think the album was good, i hate that she didnt give it a chance after the album dropped, is she planning on releasing a video for just a fool? is she even releasing anymore singles?

    • RIHOWNALLYALLHOES March 16, 2013

      What do you mean she has not promoted this CD? She has performed on every major TV program and has done a slew of interviews. I don’t see lack of promotion as being the issue!

      • dezi March 16, 2013

        People like you like to throw black artist under the bus due to album sales and chart positions. Now what exactly is christina aguilera’s excuse for flopping? Don’t bring ciara and other black artist up in this s*** just because you feel a lil embarrassed cause her s*** got chopped down to a $1.99 so people can go out and buy it. That’s karma for your ass.

        F*** OUTTA HERE -TRYING TO CLOWN SOMEBODY.

  7. nick March 16, 2013

    i am a x-tina fan & this is by far the WORST cs she has ever put out.,
    o god i hate it!!! maybe 3 songs, maybe!!!! Bionic was the shiznit., sorry this album aint worth free & i like her i do..,

    • Dev March 16, 2013

      I agree. Christina had a sound that people identified her for, and on theis album she brought into a popular sound that she couldn’t quite pull off…. and she shouted too much.

      the discount isn’t a big deal as Bruno Mars did it recently so maybe its just to garner some sales and get the public interested.

      Its a shame that she left the voice but the album didn’t really take off. I think she should go back into the studio (with Sia) and keep it simple next time

  8. COLE March 16, 2013

    Damn…

    I see XXXXXLtina WARTHOGuilera and her team are resorting to DESPERTAE measures!!!

    THE FLOPPAGE IS REAL IN THIS TOWN!!!

    LMAO…

    • irene46 March 16, 2013

      really?! at least xtina’s record company has an excuse for discounting ‘lotus’. unfortunately sales on opening week were horrendous. even at $1.99 it’s still a whole dollar more than what ‘big seller’ gaga sold ‘born this way’. what was the excuse for gaga’s 99 cent act of desperation?

  9. AQueenLikeBey March 16, 2013

    I don’t want to see any Rihanna or DiscountGa stans talking s***.

      • irene46 March 16, 2013

        even with bad record sales christina is probably going to be a legend because she has talent and will never leave the public eye completely. she may also be remembered for allegedly being in britney’s shadow and iconic for being the most hated and savaged female artist ever.

  11. MOTHERMARYISWEARIWANNACHANGE March 16, 2013

    LMFAOOOOO Chrisfloppa is always there to remind me that THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.

  12. Vee March 16, 2013

    Oh dear. I feel for her fans, its so easy to drag xtina these days.

    • DjAD13 July 18, 2013

      we love her no matter what people say ….amazing voice and talent …we dont pay attention to haters 🙂

  13. BionicGlam212 March 16, 2013

    You’re all throwing shade but all your favs have done the same.

    1. Beyonce and Mathew used to use payola before Sony got caught out which is why she hasn’t had a number 1 since 2008.

    2. Rihanna and Gaga sold their albums for 99 cents in the first week. Christina’s only doing after a few months.

    3. Will any of your favs ever sell as much as she has in the past?

    • COLE March 16, 2013

      B**** Please…

      At least QUEEN RIHANNA & EMPRESS GAGA actually sell!!!

      Also:

      Rihanna: 100 Million Records – 7 years

      GaGa: 87 Million Records – 4 years

      XXXLtina WARTHOGuilera: 54 Million Records – 14 years

      Have a _/

      🙂

      • SummertimeSadness March 16, 2013

        THE F****** INFLATION.
        GAGA-87 MILLION?
        RIHANNA-100 MILLION?

        I cannot!

      • COLE March 16, 2013

        What f****** inflation?

        LOOK IT UP GWOOOOORL!!!

        Or would you like for me to deliver the reciepts?

        🙂 🙂 🙂

      • Christina Fan March 16, 2013

        Most of Rihannas records are made up of singles sales.

    • Matthew Charlery-Smith March 16, 2013

      Payola? Receipts?

      • irene46 March 16, 2013

        i never take reported number of album or record sales as complete gospel because the record industry lies it’s ass off to jock artists. i think they low ball christina’s sales just as they do with her due with her net worth.

      • FAF March 17, 2013

        @Irene46 No, these Rihanna stans are counting her records meaning singles as albums. Every few thousand single sales counts as a “record” So Christina has sold over 50Mil albums but if you factor in singles, she may have sold over 70 or 80mil. They’re only doing this for Rihanna. When they mention Ciara, Beyonce, anyone else she’s “against” they fail to do the same for them as well… !

  14. Mother Mariah March 16, 2013

    But seriously, Christina has no signature sound or musical identity. She plays around with genres too much. Nothing wrong with dabbing into/incorporating different genres into your sound, but damn. If she goes back down the “Stripped” road and stops screaming so much, I might support. But until then….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ March 16, 2013

      Part of that has to do with the fact that she takes long breaks (for a Pop girl that is) so she loses her fans when she returns and the change of sounds totally alienates her fans.

      I don’t mind it as much (although it creates mixed feelings about the artist) but I know that the general public’s attention span isn’t built for something to outlast more than a year – year and a half off.

      Stripped & B2B are both fantastic records and Bionic is a great, experimental album that doesn’t deserve all that hate.

      Lotus on the other hand is an uninspired, lacking, and a complete disappointment. Her worst album after her debut. Her lack of control in her voice makes it even worse.

  15. Loyalty March 16, 2013

    She would’ve been better off without this era in her discography, save her the endless embarrassment really.

  16. NostalgiaOcean March 16, 2013

    Frank would never.

      • OVOForever March 16, 2013

        Frank is loved and respected by the critics and has sold a million worldwide, so hush.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 17, 2013

        Has oinktina went gold??

  17. MiMi Carey March 16, 2013

    Lol f****** pathetic xtina….. i can’t at people calling her a legend.. a legend wouldn’t flop this hard on there 4th & 5th albums what a joke i mean she had potential…. keyword *had*

    • Alonzo #BeyHive March 16, 2013

      I don’t support XTina and i don’t like her but Mariah Carey last album flop. It only sold Gold….

      • Common Sense March 17, 2013

        Yes, Mimi’s last album went only went Gold. It was also her 10th studio album. Xtincta’s 4th album BARELY went Gold, and Lotus (her 5th) is no where near Gold yet. No matter how you write it Xtina is a flop flop flop.

    • IM A FREE B*TCH March 16, 2013

      im sorry, but to say a legend cannot flop is just retarded. Toni Braxton’s 4th & 5th albums (More Than A Woman, Libra) both flopped but she is still very much a legend

  18. Dray March 16, 2013

    Now if this had been Rih, I can imagine the SHADE Sam would have thrown!!!!!

  19. Suicide Blonde March 16, 2013

    When Radio stations don’t support your music no matter how commercial the material is, you will flop, look at Mariah’s latest single “Almost Home”, such a great Pop commercial song but they are not playing her songs anymore, that song would be a hit if was singing by a 24-5 years old singer, America is AGEISM, same thing happen to Madonna since the beginning of 2000, once you start to get old, they boycott you from their playlist. Charts are made for young singers who sing generic songs for kids who listen to generic songs.

    • COLE March 16, 2013

      PREACH DUDE!!!

      But LEGENDonna… Being the LEGEND that she is has managed to surpass that tradition, as well as Tina Turner, and continues to SLAY these H***, even my fave…

      That’s why she has TWO tours in the top 10 all time tours list

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ March 16, 2013

      This is another part of the equation. You hit it right on the nail. Mariah’s problem is a result of the lack of promo (not the “ban” radio has put on her). Radio stations were adding Almost Home but it was minimal and it dropped to 0 by the time the movie came out because of the lack of promo.

      The Madonna situation, well not only are they ageist, they also hate her. Especially after AL, as you already know all about…..

      Christina is almost experiencing a radio “ban” because Your Body was a Max Martin produced dance hit waiting to happen. Even with the lack of promo, they’re not giving her the chance and part of it has to do with her laziness (not promoting, not fighting for it), the other has to do with her label not fighting for her, and finally the last piece is just nature. Every pop star, especially female pop starts, go through a “down period” during their early 30s….there are so many examples of this.

      There aren’t too many artists that have been successful in their 20s, experienced down fall in their 30s, and came back in their mid-30s, etc.

      • Suicide Blonde March 16, 2013

        @COLE
        @ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ

        I agree with both of you.

  20. Draggin4MrsCarter March 16, 2013

    I really don’t know why Mariah fans are laughing when Triumphant didn’t even chart. How are there 100 songs on the chart and that song couldn’t even make it to number 99.

    • Mother Mariah March 16, 2013

      B**** you are always worried about what I say. My fave has sold over 200 million records WW. Queen MiMi has two diamond albums in AMERICA. Two of her albums sold 25 and 32 mil back to back. 18 number one singles. Her career has lasted 23 years. I can say whatever the F*** I please. Yes THIS MiMi fan is laughing and I will continue to do so. MAD? Oh well. DEAL!

      • XtinaaLovee March 16, 2013

        b**** stfu

      • Mother Mariah March 16, 2013

        And you’re STILL mad b****! HA! Seethe!

      • Alonzo #BeyHive March 16, 2013

        You worrying about the past we talking about now. Mariah or XTina can’t sell no more. Point Blank Period.

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ March 16, 2013

      Triumphant wasn’t a Max Martin produced dance song, it was an R&B-Hip/Hop song that received no promo.

      You’re wondering why we’re laughing? Well when your fave has been as successful as Mariah, you’re allowed to laugh at the others. Nice of you to dedicate yet another moment to us. 😉

  21. Matthew Charlery-Smith March 16, 2013

    People need to stop being facetious in the hopes of gaining a laugh or two. Here’s the deal:

    Christina Aguilera, like Brandy, Kelly Rowland and a few others are probably stuck in a time warp somewhere where they are still experiencing huge sales and don’t need to promote much to go Gold or Platinum. In Xtina’s case I’m confused by her actions. She hoped off the Bionic train, partly due to going through the divorce, and joined The Voice, which for the sake of keeping her name and face in the public eye was a good move. She then taunts and teases her fans with what her new album will be about “Oh, it’ll be raw, personal…etc” she’s even seen hanging out with Adele after a concert further fueling speculation as to her new direction.

    Come last 1/4 of 2012 and after MONTHS of teasing the single finally drops…with no promotion!!!??? Huh? This is your COMEBACK single! Even Michael Jackson promoted “You Rock My World” at his Madison Square Gardens concerts and had the video ready even though it was not the single he wanted to release first. “Your Body” therefore, a catchy song with a good vocal performance, tanks, giving Xtina haters all the fuel they need to brand the era a flop before it’s already begun (although you know they were probably bumpin’ to it in their rooms!).

    Aguilera then graces us with an American Music Awards performance, her usual slot, and blows it away (her vocal chords that is). She screams, she hollers, she has a cheap-looking pink towel wrapped around her body as she gets eager gays to dance alongside her. Even fans were embarrassed. She also neglected to perform “Your Body”.

    Rather than embark on a series of promo, high profile slots and music videos, she disappears. How is she going to convince her fanbase she is worth their time and investment? We can say what we like about her preecessors, Whitney and Mariah, but they were hot on that promo game and didn’t leave it to chance. Beyonce, an artist I don’t love, had a few missteps with “4” BUT she promoted it. She was all over the US and UK doing concerts, some more organised than others but the point is people saw her, heard her and decided about her. Xtina is not in a good place. I don’t know if it’s depression, a lack of confidence over her image, money problems, raising her son or whatever, but it’s a shame to spend so much time and money on a record to see it flush down the drain due to mismanagement.

    Artists NEED to invest in their own projects. They have the money to. Kelly Rowland, Brandy and CA are letting their careers SLIIIIIIIIIIDE and they will really only have themselves to blame.

    • COLE March 16, 2013

      ITS CALLED “SELF-SABOTAGE”…

      She’s had AMPLE opportunity and she has chosen to not rectify it…

      Therefore, you will FLOP.

      Her, Her team and Radio hasn’t supported her. #PoorThat

      END OF.

  22. @dirtyPEACHES March 16, 2013

    Her problem is that she played it way too safe on this record. Her desperation for it to become a hit was evident from the time we heard the demo of “Your Body” and found out that it was produced by Max Martin. The album had too many hands on it and showed no artistic perspective like ‘Stripped’ and ‘Back to Basics’. All in all, it was a horrible album that tried to touch many different formats at the same time. Keep that in perspective with the fact that Christina’s attitude makes her not likeable and you have a disaster. I’m not surprised that it flopped but I’m surprised that RCA waited this long to slash prices. Rihanna sold ‘Rated R’ for 99cents in Thanksgiving of ’09. They knew what they were doing then. Christina should look into another label, get back with Linda Perry and make music not based on sales, but on the artistic merit that she swears that she has.

    • FLOETIC JUSTICE March 16, 2013

      BUT RATED R STILL WENT TRIPLE PLATINUM WW.

      • irene46 March 16, 2013

        i agree christina is very much disliked personally. no doubt that’s why she has no support from the industry such as radio stations etc, celeb shows and mags who seldom drop her name (joan rivers does, occasionally). yet for some reason (likability, probably) used to be singer jessica simpson stays getting wasted press.

  23. Britney Stan March 16, 2013

    Awwwwwwww poor xxltina….. price cutting still won’t get you to gold mama.. 🙂

    • irene46 March 19, 2013

      well, maybe riaa can go ahead and give christina the gold like they gave britney the platinum certification when she was only in the territory of gold status.

  24. KD March 16, 2013

    OMG, why are you always going on about Let There Be Love? That is easily one of the worst songs on the album.

    Aside from that Xtina is done…she can’t shock the world anymore like she did with her ass-less chaps way back when. Guess Mary J. Blige was right after all…karma has knocked her off her pedestal.

    • Britney Stan March 16, 2013

      Right Mary said Britney would be bigger & last longer & its a fact 🙂

      • FAF March 16, 2013

        i looooooooooooove that song!!!!! That & “Sing for Me” >>>>

      • irene46 March 17, 2013

        britney gets pity press and support because of her delicate condition. if the media had continued with the negative 2007 publicity and then started putting her on blast for her lack of talent, her career would have kept rolling downhill.

  25. Britney Stan March 16, 2013

    Can’t get a hit on her own these days….If it wasnt for pitbull & adam levine this tramp wouldn’t of had a hit in the last 5 years smh

    • XtinaaLovee March 16, 2013

      Britneys a dead b****

      • ANNA March 16, 2013

        britney is dead??? then what is left for christina??? at least britney got 3 top 10 with femme fatale and was the woman who earn more mnoney according to forbes in 2012! .. what about christina???

      • irene46 March 19, 2013

        britney gets repeated airplay which is an advantage over christina. she also has hardcore fans who take desperate measures to inflate records sales…such as campaigning each other to buy duplicate copies of her cds.

  26. Kyle March 16, 2013

    Let’s just face it, people aren’t really interested in Christina Aguilera anymore. She was successful as a judge on “The Voice” and released this album at the shows peak and it still sold poorly. I mean, what else can she really do to save it? I don’t even think discounting the album to $1.99 will help its cause. Some of the material was decent, but I agree with the comments regarding the fact that she played it way too safe with this material. It’s like they pulled together 12-13 “hopeful” singles and called it an album. There was no consitency. I say this all the time, but I think “Back To Basics” was her best album. Its sound was retro but still fresh and it had a theme: “Appreciation of the past but still looking to the future and NOT CARING about the present.” I LOVED THAT ERA! Good luck to her thought because there is no denying her talent.

    • irene46 March 17, 2013

      i intended to buy ‘lotus’ even without the discount. i’ll be buying it for sure now.

    So disappointed on how horrible this era has gone…. like im legit in tears Christina has the best voice in the industry, fantastic music she just doesn’t get promoted well

    I dont see how autotune crack w**** like Britney can still sell decent when she cant sing or even dance anymore wtf

    &Why tf are Mooriah fans talking both singles from lotus actually charted in the hot 100.. but triumpFlop & almost to my retirement home havent charted at all awww nobodies here for that washed up drag queen

    oh & feel the moment is #13 on the hot 100 on its way to becoming a top 10 hit when was the last time Cowriah Carey or BeyWhore had a top 10 hit??? oh ok

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ March 16, 2013

      Xtina stan 😆

      Y’all can sit here and brag about how “The Voice” was such a success because of LEGENDTINA and how MLJ was a success because of her 15 second cameo at the end of the song and about how FTM is a success because of her yet can’t boast the same success on her own material?

      I guess she’s the Ashanti of this decade, boasting of successful collaboration but nothing to show for independent success.

    • Mother Mariah March 16, 2013

      Lmao. You stupid queens love to bring up “Triumphant” and “Almost Home”. Who cares? MiMi doesn’t have to have another successful single in her life. 200 million records sold WW. Two diamond plaques. 18 #1 singles. Highest selling Christmas album ever (15 million). 23 years of relevance. Need I proceed?

      You need to stop worrying about what the Mariah stans are saying, and start worrying about your fave who has faded into oblivion. BOOOOOM!

    • Common Sense March 17, 2013

      Best voice in what industry? It sure as hell isn’t in the singing industry. The b**** sounds like a lawnmower.

    • yoya_Sschur March 18, 2013

      you cant understand why “crack w**** britney” still sells? because she is th princess of pop. people still love her, she has charisma, perhaps she doesnt have the best voice in the industry but she still has the ability of keeping her fans interested tn her. and with mariah, please! is embarassing how you can compare her to lotus era!! she has so many number 1 singles and albums!!! and like britney, mariah has also the ability of being relevant to people. christina doenst have that. sorry!!!

      • irene46 March 18, 2013

        yoya…

        get real! the media keeps artists relevant even more so than fans. if the media isn’t interested even decent record sales may not help. pink is a good example. if she doesn’t have an album out she’s seldom in the press.

    Failure happens, there isn’t one artist in the history of music that has been successful from the start to finish. The biggest achievement any artist can have in my opinion is passing that obstacle from success-to failure- to bouncing back on top. Unfortunately not many people are able to do it.

    ——–

    What factors contributed to Xtina’s downfall?

    – Long breaks (pop girls can’t afford them)
    – Too extreme in experimentation in genres (confuses the common “pop listener”
    – Bad public image (in this digital age where personality and image are more important that talent, she has it pretty difficult).

    She should’ve released Bionic in 2008-2009 instead of the GH era because then people wouldn’t confuse the Bionic sound with Gaga rip-off. Lotus should’ve been released in 2011 or early 2012 with promo (and better material).

    etc etc etc…..

      I’m surprised that you actually typed exactly what I’m feeling!

      • popeniz March 16, 2013

        Well you just told one…lotus sucks and the general public agrees.. Hence 1.99

      “Failure happens, there isn’t one artist in the history of music that has been successful from the start to finish. The biggest achievement any artist can have in my opinion is passing that obstacle from success-to failure- to bouncing back on top. Unfortunately not many people are able to do it.”

      i couldnt agree more! there are plenty of examples to this:
      – madonna with american life and then she hit the world with confessions
      – mariah with glitter and then she released one of her best albums: the emancipation of mimi
      – brtney well though blackout wasnt a flop because it received posistive reviews but is her lowest record sales , and then she released circus which first sales week were more than 500,000 units

      so christina, she is drowning in her diva attitude. che cant have two consecutive flop albums. her career is in danger,

      • irene46 March 18, 2013

        bionic also got positive reviews but it was still called a flop. it took ‘blackout’ 5 years to finally reach platium status and a compaign launched by her fans to buy duplicate copies of the cd to blow up the sales.

  32. Suicide Blonde March 16, 2013

    Another thing is that she needs to take out those b*** implants and lose weight, she used to look like a living doll and that’s what people want to see.

    • irene46 March 18, 2013

      i agreee!

  33. cvt March 16, 2013

    MY QUESTION IS, WHY WASN’T THERE A VIDEO RELEASED AFTER YOUR BODY, THAT WAS A SOLID SINGLE WITH A GREAT VIDEO!! SHE HAS A PLETHORA OF SONGS ON THIS ALBUM FOR SINGLES!! THERE IS CLEARLY MORE TO THIS STORY BEHIND THE SCENES BUSINESS WISE. NO, REASON FOR AN ALBUM THIS GOOD ECSP. WITH THE MONEY CHRISTINA HAS MADE TO NOT EVEN RELEASE A SECOND SINGLE SHE COULD HAVE SHOT A VIDEO FOR LET THERE BE LOVE, BLANK PAGE, SING FOR ME, ALL AROUND THE WORLD, CEASE FIRE, BEST OF ME, & LIGHT UP THE SKY
    BAFFLING ?

  34. yoya_Sschur March 16, 2013

    no no and NOOOOOO !!!! this is a bad movement in christina career! christina is no likeable anymore and this is going to drown her for sure… people is just not interested in her, is a pity because she has talent

    • irene46 March 18, 2013

      the media determines who is interesting by keeping them in the public eye. if a celeb has favor with the media they will get publicity whether they are truly worthy of it or not. ever wonder why ex singer-actress jessica simpson gets so much publicity.

  35. Faye March 16, 2013

    I just don’t think Christina is into making albums at the moment from the lack of promotions shes done for her last two albums. She needs to release an album when shes more committed to it. I don’t think her music is bad and could do well with promotion. This album had barely any promotion no posters on the street, billboards, or train stations, no advertisements on TV, hardly any performances or interviews talking about the album plus radio stations not playing her singles this is why shes not doing well as she was before. She’ll be OK in the end shes got a lot of talent. BTW just because some artist sell well like Rihanna, Katy Perry and Britney Spears doesn’t mean the music is any good its just that they have good PR teams that make sure their talked about. Christina needs to get a new management team.

  36. OMG ( Avril, Celine, Beyonce) March 16, 2013

  39. Robot March 16, 2013

    This album had so much potential with hits like: Let There Be Love, Around The World, Red Hot Kinda Love, Cease Fire and Blank Page.

    It’s such a shame this album didn’t get a tour!

  40. popeniz March 16, 2013

    Christina, as of late she has brought it on herself. No tour, no strong singles, the album was just terrible. Artist from my generation normally toured because touring resulted in more sales of albums etc…That is honestly why beyonce’s 4 didn’t move as many units and the same could be said about Xtina, Ciara and a whole host of stars underperforming.

    This new generation though… Rihanna and Gaga’s fans…How can you talk? These b****** are queens of discount. Had Rihanna’s record label not known to sell her singles and albums cheap about 90% of her sales wouldn’t exist(about 75% don’t exist now).That is why I respect the same people most of you try to drag….The whole payola thing with beyonce? That’s speculation r*****. If your ass would’ve watched life is but a dream…you would know the chick said she didn’t care if she sold 1 album and wasn’t going to kiss ass at radio for the 4 era. But then again(basic b****** only have basic cable, if they have cable at all) there is no point.. most you just come on here just to argue
    I mean you people think slaying is selling 3 million records worldwide(Singles be 0.79-0.99, Albums cheaper than a burger(all those sales and yet no profit),when there are well over 7Billion in the world.smh

    • Ugh March 16, 2013

      “you would know the chick said she didn’t care if she sold 1 album and wasn’t going to kiss ass at radio for the 4 era.”

      Which is why she didn’t have any hits that era dumbass, because she didnt schmooze(pay) anybody.

      • irene46 March 17, 2013

        “albums cheaper than a burger”…lol! other than just being haters, i don’t understand how talented beyonce gets accused of payola when no one ever wonders how britney spears who hasn’t a sweat’s drip of talent gets so much radio play and contrived bullsh!t pr from the media.

    • yoya_Sschur March 18, 2013

      my gosh !!!! @irene46.. there is a simple answer for that: britney is still appealing, interesting. call her whatever you want but that wont make her popularity to decrease. oh, and i forgot she is the princess of pop. deal with it

      • irene46 March 18, 2013

        @ yoya_sschur…

        britney interesting and appealing? only to her obsessed fans. the only thing she’s done of real interest since her meltdown and 2007 vma performance is not being asked back to another season of x factor. she gets pity pr from the media because they admittedly adore her for what they say is her sweet humbleness. they heap on nothing but positive publicity to keep her away from the head shears.

  41. Lovebird March 16, 2013

    So someone asked for receipts of Beyonce’s payola with Sony and how she bought herself airplay (which explains why she’s unable to get a hit today). I just couldn’t help myself;

    “(NY Times) The state investigation found that Sony BMG, which releases music by acts including Jennifer Lopez, Good Charlotte and Beyoncé, had provided stations with entertainers for station-affiliated concerts or paid for station equipment or other bills in exchange for having its songs played. It also provided vacations and electronic goods for on-air giveaways in a direct trade for airplay. And it hired independent promoters to funnel money to radio stations.” www . nytimes . com /2005/07/26/business/26music . html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

  45. Realest March 16, 2013

    Karma is a b****. Someone to miss thing she could sing and after the “Stripped”era she , in her mind, put herself in the league of Whitney, Mariah, Celine etc and her who hasn’t come down since. Unfortunately her ego is higher than her Sara post Stripped and she seems to be her biggest fan. Maybe if she humbled herself a bit she would have a turn around but come on industry says she is a grade a B****! And TGj she ain’t been a soprano in a minute she is a comfortable alto. Screeches DO NOT COUNT in range tally

    • Lien March 16, 2013

      its funny you say that because Xtina has never compared her self to the vocal trinity but 2/3 have them have praised her and called her the best

      she has way more respect from the industry than haters, 2 bitter artists openly disliking her =/= the whole industry. try again

    • all4u1 March 16, 2013

    You are absolutely right when you said that Christina need a better pr team. Also, she is not as driven as she use to be. I think with the right material, extensive promotion and management, she will redeem herself.

    To the people saying that she is not relevant is absolutely untrue. Her singles still chart and views on Youtube are astronomical. After the release of “Feel This Moment”, the video for “Your Body”, in the past three days, had gained 5 million more views. So, that’s proof that people are still interested in her.

  49. CiCi Slaaaaays March 16, 2013

    i feel for this gurl……. xtina deserves nothing but success aswell ass ciara they put in the work…

    • all4u1 March 16, 2013

      You are so right! Christina’s problem is the lack of promotion. You can’t expect for an album to do well, if you don’t promote it.

      • CiCi Slaaaaays March 16, 2013

        True!! Ciaras issue is the same *sigh*

  50. Lien March 16, 2013

    the promotion for the your body single was completely non-existent, as for the album the few performances she gave were in her city and random songs off her album. its like her team wants her to fail lol

    Oh Christina girl *sigh

  52. Laquanda March 16, 2013

    The problem isn’t lack of promotion. It’s all the stupid radio programmers who are biased against Christina and refuse to spin her singles at a competitive level, but will gladly force-feed the public with the most mediocre of Britney, Rihanna and P!nk songs.

    • mr.m March 16, 2013

      Mariah could sing very well if you hear her old material tbh
      Her new material don’t show her range .. That made her voice sound like a good vocalist .. nothing special

      Xtina = better tone, power, soul
      Mariah = better technique, range

      They both have a signature sound tho.. #LEGENDARY
      Beyonce could never ..

      • Glamour Puss March 16, 2013

        whats so “soulful” about xtina’s voice? the fact that she grunts & screams? she DID have better power than mariah, but mariah had more agility, versatility, range, technique, melisma ahhhh she was just the s*** in the 90s/early 2000s.

        beyonce’s technique also shits on christina’s. her runs, improvisation, melisma, versatility, vibrato, control…shiiiits on christina.

      • mr.m March 16, 2013

        Go listen to X’s “Mercy on Me” then talk, h**!
        No other singer can deliver what she did ..

      B****, you crazy. Christina screams and brays like a constipated mule. Soulful? Barking like a donkey having a heart attack IS NOT SOUL. She is not soulful, she is BLACKFACE! An ugly, racist parody of what she thinks African American music is.

      • irene46 March 19, 2013

        oh please! let’s not get into crazy opinions about what a white man thinks is a racist parody of black music. that is more than a desperate stretch for negativity.

    Lol. A Ciara fan talking about vocals.

  57. diob March 16, 2013

    I guess thats the way the cookie crumbles. I absolutely love Christina so so much but I was very disappointed in the way she and her team handled this album. Maybe her heart just wasn’t into it. But if that was the case she shouldnt have recorded the album. The album has some great tracks on it but sadly no one even knew the album was coming out. I hope they get it together. Maybe this will boost sales maybe not but its still very disappointing.

    Why are people talking about Mariah, beyonce, gaga, Rihanna, taylor etc…. this has nothing to do with them. They are all great in their own right (EXCEPT FOR TAYLOR WHOM I LOATHE)

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! March 17, 2013

      just for you then….

  58. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 16, 2013

    The Struggle is Real in the music industry , but by discounting the Album’s Price like that , what the actual purpose of discounting it ?!

    i know People who won’t bother buying those discounted albums even if it was for free.

    those Artist who resorted to such gimmicks as “discounting” their albums must think about RE-BRANDING themselves imo.

    i bought it ages ago tho.

  59. Mark111 March 16, 2013

    This isn’t gonna work. I know that it’s amazon MP3 and not the lable, but this album still wont crack the top 10, not 20 I bet.And don’t y’all come with Bruno Mars, cause his album was already selling ok.But if this don’t crack the top 10, then that would be SO BAD!!!!

  62. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 16, 2013

    the lambs need to stay quiet , do something with their time instead of involving in stan wars with fighters/barbs/eminem fans , like go and support both “triumphant” and “almost home” in iTunes/amazon/wherever you buy your music and BUY THEM , cuz only god knows mariah carey can be in the same situation or even worse , NOW it doesn’t matter who she is or if she slayed in the past , the younger audience is not that kind to old Divas and Divos.

    they really need to keep it cute , no need to shade on Xtina , she has a great Voice that is a rare thing nowadays.

    and to make it clear in the whole vocals thingy :

    Beyonce : Good Voice , Best Technique “hands down” .
    Xtina : a Gifted/rare Voice , Worst Technique ever , can’t make the best use of it.
    mariah : great Voice , Tired Technique , her nowadays vocals are way weaker than her hey-days but i love her and i wish her the best.

    yes honey , coming from a rihanna fan , so what ?

      Checklist:

      Stan for Rihanna:
      — Bash Gaga, Mariah, Beyonce

      Hate Rihanna:
      — Praise Gaga
      — Give Beyonce backhanded compliments
      — Stan for Madonna

      Kiii

      Absolute trash. You have the nerve to come for anyone let alone criticize Mariah’s voice. Child you’re actually pathetic. You’d think between searching for your sexuality, stabilizing your non-existent relationship with Rihanna online, and bashing/stanning for Beyonce, you’d have your hand tied.

      And the real kii is that you actually think you spill some tea. Some s*** different day.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (SUPERIOR DIVA) March 16, 2013

    Don’t worry about that person. I knew this person was a flip-flop, actually everyone on this site does. I just tolerated him because I actually liked him. He never sticks with one with so pay those type of people no mind.

    In all the time I’ve been posting on this site (I think a year or almost a year) the only people that I’ve interacted with so much that have stayed the same since day 1 (for me) are Suicide Blonde and JohnVidal. The rest, just falls back. Takes a real b**** to stick by what they say and mean what they say than flip-flop when it gets a lil’ hot. #word

    You flopped and the discount will not help it

  65. Music Soul Harmony March 16, 2013

    Xtina has talent but she’s such an idiot for not promoting
    YB. That video has 52 million views on YouTube and peaked
    At #35 on Hot 100. It had the
    Potential to be even bigger had it been promoted right. Matthew
    Has the best comment on here. I couldn’t have said it better.
    She bought it upon herself why this project flopped.
    I’m done feeling sympathetic of she doesn’t care either.
    So far my favorite songs on the album are blank page
    And let there be love.

  66. MRDIVABITCH March 16, 2013

    *DIES LAUGHING*

    ————— FLAT LINE!

    I just can’t…*tears*

    Oh, her stans deserve it so much. So much.

    Christina is not a bad person, I really have nothing against her and I want her so bad to get her s*** together…but girl has a major ego that prevents her from fixing her vocal issues. It even prevents her from promoting thinking she’ll sell on name alone, claiming her wask-ass screamed mule braying-like vocals are gonna inspire a generation of new vocalists. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be practicing my scales and then I’ll go listen to the voice of this generation – BEYONCE!

    • irene46 March 19, 2013

      hope you have earplugs handy when ‘love on top’ starts spinning. bey’s voice has gotten so much better but ‘love on top’ is a screechy nails on a blackboard mess. it’s nonsensical to accuse christina of thinking she can sell records on her name alone when she knows she sold only 73k copies of ‘lotus’. she’s not stupid. lack of promo may have a lot to do with the company not wanting to take a financial risk because of the prevailing christina hatred. if voice coaching will help her voice she needs to get on it because her voice is quite rough and scratchy on those high notes. still has some very nice tone though.

      • MRDIVABITCH March 22, 2013

        Voice coaching can save a voice IF the singer wants the voice to be saved, which doesn’t seem to be Christina case. I can pretty much guarantee you that under my tutelage (or someone strict like my voice teacher) her voice would be in shape within 3 months or less IF she wanted to cooperate.

        And sure, you dislike Beyonce’s screechy vocal tambor when she pushes her voice, but she still manages the ever ascending key of “Love on top” without choking as Christina would do.

  67. IM A FREE B*TCH March 16, 2013

    i really dont get why people are saying that her weight made this album flop. if the material on the album is good, people will get it regardless of her weight. but then again she still needs to promote it. i have Lotus and the album has a lot of potential but she was just too lazy to promote it.

    and to those people calling her fatina, XXXLtina, fat cow and etc, stop it, bullying her wont do anything. out urself in her shoes, if someone were to call u that how would u feel? picking on someone cos of their weight isnt cool. everyone slams hollywood for promoting overly skinny girls bcos it makes everyone else feel insecure and some even become anorexic, but when there is a celeb with a fuller figure, the celeb gets dragged beyond hell.

  68. Aishaaguilerakeystesfaye March 16, 2013

    I like the album. Sure it’s not her best work, but it’s ok. However she didn’t promote it enough, asides from a few performances here and there, and when she did, her vocals weren’t on point. Better luck next time Chris, I’m not giving up on you.

  69. Aishaaguilerakeystesfaye March 16, 2013

    I agree with everything u said except for the Lotus part, I like that album. However, regarding her absence, JT was gone for seven yrs, yet people are still checking for him.

    • irene46 March 19, 2013

      unlike christina, justin has not been portrayed and bashed as one to hate on.

  70. Nichole March 17, 2013

    Bloatus is the second album this chick abandoned.

    When she released Byeonic, two flop songs were released and she had to cancel plans to tour because tickets sales were so bad. Then she comes with Bloatus 2 years later, drops a single, shoots a vid but does no promo for the song. Then she gets big as a house, and drops Bloatus for cheeseburgers, fried chicken and whatever else she’s been piggin out on. There wasn’t even a vid for Just A Fool, and that’s a nice song.

    I think Bloatus could have at least gone gold had Christina promoted the LP properly.

    If she think she can sell albums off of her name alone, then she is sadly mistaken.

  71. hoi March 17, 2013

    jullie zijn een beetje ziek in je hoofd… mischien moet je de poep eruit halen zeg maar

  72. JOHNVIDAL March 17, 2013

    Wow so many comments, many of them making so much sense:
    – Two things to blame for Lotus failure: Radio, cos Your Body was perfect for radio in this era, it should have been a radio hit even if not promoted. They don´t want to support Xtina Aguilera and I don´t like that, they are so manipulative. And the other thing is Xtina herself, there has been little promo for one reason: Xtina is not doing good, label would have supported her more but she doesn´t want to promote more, I think she knows her voice is in a terrible condition, at least when belting. Arond Bionic era she did hard promo for a couple of weeks and she was still in good condition by that era (for Xtina standards). She was on point. But now instead of improving her voice seems so damged after these 2 years without performances, not too understandable to be honest.
    – About the discounts: when are u people going to get that this is a digital retailers thing and not the labels/artists??? Bruno Mars album is not a flop and they did it last week. Rihanna (who is a talentless model imo like you all know) and Gaga famous discounts… you can´t blame them, it´s not their fault. The only thing we can comment about is the result of the discount. And that was Rihanna couldn´t do decent numbers for a “superstar” even with a discount while Gaga showed people were interested and sold 400,000 additional copies, that´s huge, plus the 700,000 at full price. People was interested in Bruno too since the discount made his sales double that week despite his album being 3 months old.
    – Don´t worry about Mariah Carey and Madonna. They don´t need another USA hit in their careers. It is still unfair though. Like somebody else already said, Almost Home is also perfect for radio these days and not to mention Mariah can at least make a vocal display unlike Rihanna. I´m not too worried though cos that´s just a song for the movie with no promo

    • MelyB March 17, 2013

      You made excellent points. I’m not a C-Aggie fan solely due to what I perceive is her nasty entitled attitude. However I did enjoy her first 2 albums and was curious enough about her sound that Amazon lowering the cost of her digital album to $1.99 was perfect incentive for me to buy it. I may not like it in which case I won’t be out $15 for a cd and can delete it if I want.

  73. Robinoost March 17, 2013

    Wow..! Christina never reduced the price TBH… Al of your faves have done that every album ! 🙂

    Well i got my extra copy now and thanks for stanning for her That Grape Juice ! 🙂

  74. Jackieyonce March 17, 2013

    I miss the Old Xtina! The soulful christina. “Beautiful” I miss that era. I like Xtina both her and beyonce are the best singers TODAY. Let’s correct something lambs, I love mariah carey I grew up with her songs always on the Radio but let’s be real she has lost her spark. She was great back in the days but. Now. People focus more on acts like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Kesha , Adele and Beyonce they’re the main POP girls Now!!! Lol beyonce been her 4 15 years bt can still compete with new girls. She survives every era. #schoolin’Life Real vocals *runs away*

    • mobwife March 17, 2013

      Yes, some artists need to know their lane and work it. I personally like the soulful Xtina I feel the same way about Kelly Clarkson. Like kelly, I can see Xtina making a move to Country Music to find success again!

  75. JER March 17, 2013

    lol LEGEND!

  76. Playa March 17, 2013

    Christina is very lazy. Songwriters worked very hard to write her tracks that would chart and then she doesn’t even bother to promote them, thus the songwriters don’t get paid.

  77. mobwife March 17, 2013

    Well, lets see where to begin with this story? Xtina’s CD simply lacked something essential.Tthat element that will propel it beyond it’s niche audience (i.e. her stans). I like Xtina but I see her pretty much as a white Jennifer Hudson both are talented vocalists that simply cannot get over that hump! I hate to say it but I do think Xtina’s weight and her public moments of drunken disorder have really dogged her…………”on the low”<— meaning that no one will admit it publically! I must say Lotus' sells numbers baffle even me given that she was a host on one of Ameica's top rated TV programs which has helped quite a few others with making successful come backs! She also has had a slew of positive media/press as a result of her involvement on The Voice.Given all of that, I don't really know what else to say about Xtina and Lotus? 0_o

    She really needs to get back to that "Fighter" or "Genie In A Bottle" era of style and music if she wants to survive……imo

  78. irateninja March 17, 2013

    There’s nothing wrong with staying in the past…because Celine Dion’s last album was ballads like she always does and it went Platinum….:)………Christina is over and she obviously doesn’t have a core fanbase because is she did the s*** would have went gold already. MiMi & Celine have never had a gold album, all Platinum and above, because they have a loyal fanbase that will BUY no matter what.

  79. GGG March 17, 2013

    u guys say Xtina is over ha … let me give you some numbers JAF sold 407 k and is still sellin every week with only 3 AI on radio and not even a music video

    look at rihanna’s pour it up 70 million AI on radio it barely sold 600 k

    rihanna’s diamonds sold 130 k first week and had a much bigger support from radio then when xtina’s Your body came out and that sold 103 K it had been already leaked for a month or so and the version that was for sale was not even the version people preferred

    So DO NOT TELL ME THERE IS NO DEMAND FOR XTINA !!! There is the problem is Radio her label and her self for giving up on what could have been her best selling album in years

    • Charles October 20, 2013

      This record is one of her best. Empty words and just a fool and sing for me are my favourite. She did not promote lotus because she went through a bad time with heavy criticism. She was in the voice too. I think in the end was too much for her. But is a shame she didn’t .So far with all this crap music we hear on the radio. This record is the best along with global warning from pitbul. Best records since 2012. What she needs to do now, is Record another 5 videos from lotus but proper videos. That let there be love video was cheap. not good and then wait for outcome.
      thereafter put lotus behind and move to another project.

  80. lolax March 17, 2013

    i bought lotus for 11.99 $ 🙁 is a great album

    • Charles October 20, 2013

      TRUE, I did for 9.99 here in London. This record is great. very good. One of her best, without any doubt.

  81. YM March 17, 2013

    Did anyone else bother to click the link?

    It’s now 9.99 lol

  82. Jonathan Gardner March 18, 2013

    CHRISTINA is NO SOPRANO.

    Years of poor vocal technique have darkened and lowered her voice.

    She’s a mezzo-soprano.

    • MRDIVABITCH March 22, 2013

      If that!
      A mezzo soprano should have a usable G5
      Her range is consistantly more like that of an alto (not a contralto, as contraltos though singing low and dark have a wide range of 3+ octaves), a chorus part of an octave (or less) A3-A4. Anything above A4 is strained, and often anything around or below A3 is unsupported and foggy.

    • Charles October 20, 2013

      Her voice remains the same. Hasn’t change and there is nothing wrong with her technique.

  83. Charles October 20, 2013

    She went through a very bad time with the criticism, So she was not bothering in promote lotus. It’s a big big shame she did not. This record is one of her best after stripped. I loved from track one all the way to the end. Now coming with the price issue, that is not true, Here in England her lotus is about 7.99 of course used one you could get for 1.99. In USA is 9.99
    so that price from where you got it from I don’t know.
