To the average modern day music lover Christina Aguilera‘s pipes are unmistakable.  From those throaty growls to moments of dizzying melisma, for over 20 years the singer’s distinct vocal stylings have earned her mention among music history’s most celebrated vocal divas.

Yet, when she recently took to the subways of New York City (albeit in disguise alongside Jimmy Fallon), passersby – though impressed – were unable to quite pick up that they were indeed in the presence of the Grammy-winning vocal gymnast.

‘Boo’d Up’ has blasted newcomer Ella Mai in the minds of the masses – on a global scale.

The Brit, who is the protégé of DJ Mustard, has seen the song not only serve as her breakout smash, but one of the year’s biggest hits.
