New Song: Christina Aguilera – ‘Not Myself Tonight’

Published: Tuesday 30th Mar 2010 by Trent

Christina Aguilera debuted her new song, ‘Not Myself Tonight’ moments ago on ‘I-Heart Radio’. The track is the first single from her upcoming ‘Bionic’ album. The album hits stores on June 8th. Check out the track (which is on constant repeat via the special ‘Christina Agulera Radio’ link) below:

Aguilera just hit the industry hard! While her vocals sound a bit strained on some of the belting, the production on this track is in-sane. If Aguilera was looking for heavy airplay in both the clubs and on the radio, she will definitely find it with this song. Polow Da Don definitely worked his magic on this one and it will be shocking if it does not crack the Billboard Hot 100’s top 10. Welcome back Christina!

Hit  or Miss?

    Hmmmm I dunno, I’m not feeling this song too much 🙁

  7. Jr March 30, 2010

    Back and better than ever! HOT!

  8. Kevin March 30, 2010

    Thought people don’t agree with me, I definitely am behind the whole take of the album. CA is going for something different. Even though she has a kick-ass voice, why not change it up and go for a bit of a techno-ish sound? I actually think that Mariah should follow the same approah. Obsessed went to #7 and was in general a big song. Even though it used auto-tune, it wasn’t because she needed it, it’s because of the “Cher Effect” that was on the song!

    For the single, though, I’m eh. It’s definitely solid, I feel like the beat behind her singing is a bit too much and takes away from her vocals.

    Love when she goes “but baby, not toniiiiiiiiiiiight” and gives that ripple effect on the “i’s.”

  10. Gary March 30, 2010

    I’m so dissapointed =(
    Ciara/Christina : Girls , wake up and put out some better stuff !!!!

    I HAAAVE TO SAY THAT I LIKE THEM BOTH !!! Ciara is hot as hell , and Christina’s voice is one of the best ever.

  11. Anon March 30, 2010

    Hmmmm…it’s a pretty catchy song. Her singing reminds me of someone just screaming in key though.

  12. well there March 30, 2010


  13. parisian girl March 30, 2010

    i’m not feeling it but the beat is sick

  14. alida4221 March 30, 2010

    nice!! this song is a hit! totally a club banger too!!

  15. SOOS March 30, 2010

    The background music is soooo fresh. Awesome.


  16. lisa March 30, 2010

    The song is sick and she still singing her ass off! best of both worlds!!!!

  17. simply me March 30, 2010

    eh out of 10 stars, i would give it a between a 4 and 5. Not feeling it too much, maybe it will grow on me.

  18. SOOS March 30, 2010

    In Europe it’s gonna be a HUGE HUGE HUGE hit !!!!!

  19. Roab March 30, 2010

    Not a Xtina fan at all…I mean at all but in the name of Yaweh this hooker can sing!!! Hands down…lungs all day long…can’t even hate on her…not my kinda music but she’s awesome at what she does and may I add she’s classy!

  20. lostonez March 30, 2010

    she got a hit

  21. jimmy March 30, 2010

    meh, not really feeling it. the beat is different and fresh but the lyrics and her singing it sounds so trite, it is sort of all over the place for me.

  22. 12345 March 30, 2010

    lmao, this f****** sux, what a big disapointment, I think we cant even count on the ones that are talented anymore

  23. lisa March 30, 2010

    Huge record her vocals sound prfect she going for it vocally the mess up of the vocals is beautiful thats what hot you dont always have to be perfect vocally like you really think she couldnt tell it was done on purpose people that cant sing just dont get i see your dont get it who ever wote it

  24. Ghetto Fab March 30, 2010

    Now this is Hot! Ciara take some pointers. Xtina is back! The clubs are going to eat this up! Europe will love this song too.

  25. 12345 March 30, 2010

    “im kissing all the boys and the girls” that part cracks me up, she is trying so hard, she looks like a 60 year old woman all the time with that heavy makeup and awful clothes and now she thinks she is from the next century? I dont think this will go #1, I think it wont stop Alejandro

  26. Rudegal March 30, 2010

    It’s cool. I don’t know. Giving me Britney on a GaGa beat. Her voice is too big for these over produced beats.

  27. Topman March 30, 2010

    Her voice is so damaged 😐 Better than the preview had me thinking though.

  28. klg0845 March 30, 2010

    I thought she was ramping down her vocals. Sounds like typical over singing Christina. Although I do love the song. And I wish her well.

  29. Boricua March 30, 2010

    Kinda predictable… And she sounds like she’s straining on that hook..

  30. t March 30, 2010

    S*** Back beat?

  31. B. Mike March 30, 2010


    I will jump for joy when this electronic club music dies off! I can’t believe she went this route – she’s waaaay too soulful and classy to sing this crap. It’s almost like Alicia Keys went techno – it just sounds strange coming from her. Maybe it’ll grow on me. I love Xtina so I hope it does.

  32. XS March 30, 2010

    im not feeling this song maybe it will grow on me

  33. ChrisFresh March 30, 2010

    hot beat.. but the shoutin ahhh

  34. BLACK March 30, 2010

    SOUNDS LIKE BEYONCE AND BRITNEY SPEARS MIX,lol Made for the gay clubs, probaly hit #1 just because its Xtina.

  35. number1k9 March 30, 2010

    I like it!

    “Not Myself Tonight,” proves that Electronic Dance Pop music still has a place for strong vocalists. The song uniquely combines segments where fans will hear signature Christina vocals leading into the chorus around simplistic vocals throughout the remainder of the song. Polow da Don did a great job by creating an Urban influenced, Electronic Dance song that clubs, Top 40s radio, and even Rhythmic radio will devour.

    There’s my mini review of it, it’s definitely a catchy song, and the 18 second preview didn’t do it ANY justice! beats SLAMMIN’ HOTT!

    This is wack.

  38. algie March 30, 2010

    i love me some xtina but this song just does absolutely nothing for me

  39. TRUTH March 30, 2010


  40. March 30, 2010


    this is insane
    so glad to have xtina back to shut all these nonsingin’ heffas down

  41. StayAfro March 30, 2010

    I can Justin Timberlake S*** back clicking in the production, sounds good

  42. DANBOFFICIAL March 30, 2010

    i love it ! the videos gonna be hot and the songs gonna be huge !
    people need to remember that Vocally… Christina can put singers like whitney and mariah to shame nowadays…

  43. TerryTorro March 30, 2010

    I think I just found my spring anthem, Thank you Christina….Thank you.

  44. kongo7 March 30, 2010

    Hmmmm sounds ok to me maybe is she has a Killah video it might be ok on the charts..!
    To me Xtina is has the bEst Vocals of this Generation nobody can sing like Xtina not even “Hunny B” Lool but yhh this is not the xtina we know but it is always good to change up your Genre get a bigger fan base.! but i think she is too soulfull to go down this route this is for Gaga and people like that but hey ho let her do her thing but it will grow on evryone i think.!

  45. Me Damnit! March 30, 2010

    @B. Mike: I agree. I am a huge X-Tina fan, but tI’m not feeling this at all! It sounds like everything else on the radio. it seems as if she went with whats popular now instead of sticking to what she does best. I know she is trying to compete with a lot of pop singers out right now, but I hate to see her sell out like this! I’m not saying she can only sing ballads, but her voice is too beautiful to waste on this tacky track. I expect so much more from her!

    It will definitly get airplay because of who she is, but I can’t see it reaching No. 1. Hopefully her other material will be better than this cause I am not impressed.

  46. AalexisR (The Bahamas) March 30, 2010


  47. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 30, 2010

    @BEYDABESS, I know you ain’t trying to put “Beyonce” and “Original” in the same sentence! What, with her song stealing, lyric thieving,false credit taking, TINA TURNER swagger jacking ass. Just stay licking on Beyonce’s c*** and don’t even bring up originality when it comes to her name. Of ALL the people, SMH…

  48. bday March 30, 2010

    dont even bring beyonce into shes the most original artist to come out since michael jackson. she would never touch this song,

  49. KodieBlue March 30, 2010

    Therese Nobody Touchin this in the Game Right Now!


  50. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 30, 2010


  51. ImYourStar702 March 30, 2010

    I love it its hot!!!!

    Get it christina!!!

  52. Mike March 30, 2010

    It sounds too much like a demo. Plus like someone else said, it’s too much like everything else. I’m really sick of all of these singers thinking they have to release something uptempo to be successful.

    You need to have something catchy and that people can get into. It doesn’t have to be uptempo or electropop-like and I’m disappointed that she has the mentality of many other singers.

  53. Oggie March 30, 2010

    BIG TUNE, at 1st your taken a back cos not used to hearing Xtina on these beats by the second listen your hooked!!!

  54. CrackisWack March 30, 2010

    I mean, its ok. Nothing to write home about. It sounds like she’s totally biting Britney and honestly i’m a big fan Ms. Aguilera but Britney does dirty better. NEXT!

  55. CrackisWack March 30, 2010

    why is everyone trying to be futuristic with their sound. Geesh let it go already! Leave that to Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga, thanks. X-tina you’re a sell out with this one. It just might go to the top of the charts but that’s not bc its a good song. Nevr thought I’d say this but Telephone and Rude boy sh*t on this song any day.

  56. Patrick March 30, 2010

    i am so disappointed! where is the old christina.
    i’m getting sick of all this dance-stuff, all those house/pop beats.
    ‘stripped’ is one of my favourite albums ever because christina put so much feeling in it, but this new material sucks… the only song i really like is ‘spotlight’

  57. Mr.727 March 30, 2010

    I hope that she brings it with this album, cuz if she don’t make this pop s*** sound some what of an leader from the rest she is done!!! I like the chorus, but the rest of the song sounds to scattered an not put together! Sometimes the album cover can make you siked, but when you hear the music than you are, f*** this sucks! CA babe you better make this electro s*** work for you, cuz pop is really starting to bore us Americans! We are known for soul music, rock n’ roll, good sounding pop music from the 80’s!!

    I want to ask anyone out there that is into astrology, does that have anything to do with music being shitty? Cuz I feel that an astrological explanation could shed some light on why music is so shitty today! Just a thought!

  58. Beysus!! March 30, 2010

    .Hmm….not a good look indeed. No chorus/ no hook/ a terrible song. How the f*** are you gonna belt over a dance beat? Bithc plz. GTFO. She’s done, and tell Britney to come get her swag back. This song is too generic and cheesy for “LEGENDTINA”. She’s so pathetic. Ciara/Britney/and even Rihanna would have RIPPED this s*** right. This is like the new gay National Anthem. Next!!!!!!!!!

  59. trina b March 30, 2010

    I was expecting so much with a title like Bionic. Oh what a dissappointment. I hope the whole album isn’t like this.

  60. Dan March 30, 2010

    Love it! I’m dancing!!!! 😀

  61. Jerome March 30, 2010

    People, even her fans, are expected to react differently whenever Christina releases a new single (remember Dirrty???) given the fact that she doesn’t stay in the same place. She always jump from one genre to another, I don’t know what you think about that, but I prefer that than having all these cliches of artists doing the same god damn thing on every album that they release.

    I have high hopes for Christina and that’s not only because Im a huge fan, but because she’s one of the few out there who are not only artists, but are also singers. It’ll be the most saddening turn if the industry stop paying attention to the likes of her.

    This song, just like “Dirrty” and “Aint No Other Man”, introduced a new Christina to me. I can’t wait to get my hands on her album because I know she’ll take her fans on another journey.

    More power to her.

  62. Blasian March 30, 2010

    I don’t like it!

  63. Jamie March 30, 2010

    So I guess everyone was wait to hear what Kelly’s new song would sound like before releasing theirs…

  64. Kevin March 30, 2010

    Ok, I’ve been listening, and now I cannot get enough of this song.

  65. the one March 30, 2010

    this sounds very psychotic and out of control ! waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too damn loud!

  66. Jp5892 March 30, 2010

    Does anyone else feel like this is break the ice part 2 this honestly could be on britneys blackout album nice try christina but I really think u should shy away from gaga britney music it’s not your fit

  67. black March 30, 2010

    yessss thats when i heard the song i thought of britney, sounds just like break the

  68. Jp5892 March 30, 2010

    I so prefer break the ice tho lol

  69. mike March 30, 2010







  70. geronimo March 30, 2010

    i will wait for X Y & Z to comment on this one.

  71. Darren March 30, 2010

    BOOOO! SUCKS! what the f*** is happening to this world? every music star who used to be great is putting out complete s***. Christina, Usher, Mariah… good for them for doing something new and different that THEY are into but the only people who will follow are their fans and even some of them are giving up.

  72. Jp5892 March 30, 2010


    Yea your so right Mariah definitly is over but I wouldn’t give up on usher and christina yet..another thing is is that these artists are willing to give up their true artistry to make some 3min s*** fest/auto tuned mainstream song just to get a #1 hit. And we can’t blame them because we’re eating it up

  73. KENDALL March 30, 2010


  74. A, B, C and D and E March 30, 2010


  75. Jasmine March 30, 2010

    Why do I keep hearing Justin Timberlake “S*** Back” when I listen to this song? Did she use the same beat and edit it cause I thought that song was produced by Timbaland while this one is supposedy produced by someone else? Also, the lyrics are repetitive and this song could have been better with better lyrics.

  76. boomchakalaka March 30, 2010

    I cannot stand Polow. Arrogant f**k actually thinks he’s versatile. I don’t mean to hate, but I was actually excited for this album – hoping this song would deliver after seeing the iamwhoiamami viral video (assuming it is in fact Christina), but this is just boring and preditable stuff. I’m being genuine when I ask for somebody to please answer this, specifically: What is fresh about this song?

    It’s just the predictable Pop/R&B injected with some trance saw-synths, 4-4 beat salt-n-peppa sample. The only thing that i’m feeling is the bassline… otherwise this is just another disposable, unmemorable song. I thought Christina was going to bend the curve as she has in the past with pop; this sounds like she’s given in.

  77. Simon March 30, 2010

    Really like the track…. good beat, catchy lyrics and trademark powerful vocals we expect from Christina. SHE IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!

  78. malyeh March 30, 2010

    Ohhhhhhhh no =(
    This song is #carbomb

    I agree 100% with Darren !

    Somebody please save music, in other words Michael come back please !!!!!

  79. BeyonceStan March 31, 2010

    Her voice is f@cked up. I never thought she was all that anyway. And if you think that StankTina can sing better then Whitney or Mariah, then you are one deaf-toned BIATCH

  80. OPTICAL March 31, 2010

    The song sucks. This album will flop. This is not something new. I was impressed by her Back To Basics since she was the only artist who released an album with that 20’s sound. I’d prefer her coming back to the Dirrty genrae and perform rolling in mud with her baby for this year’s VMA performance.

  81. Corey March 31, 2010

    Christina was talkin bout makin a futuristic record back in 2007. I knew that by the time the album came out, people would say she was following the trend. I guess that’s one of the cons of releasing albums every 4 years. Her real fans have been wanting a club banger from her for ages and she finally delivered. I expect this song to be tearin up the clubs and I feel that it’s gonna be a smash on the charts; if not #1, then at least top 5.

  82. Corey March 31, 2010

    And by the way, the 1st single doesn’t always represent how the album will sound. She’s working with some pretty dope producers that I feel other people flock to once her album comes out.

  83. KD March 31, 2010


    Well atleast it is better than Keeps Getting Better.

  84. Kingnoah3000 March 31, 2010

    cool track..nice to hear her vocal again!

  85. ADE March 31, 2010

    umm what the hell?? wheres the song and what the f*** is this Christina Aguilera radio b*******, playing me “A Spoonful of Sugar” by Julie Andrews…just for that Christina can kiss my ass

  86. Corey March 31, 2010

    It’s her own radio station so she can play whatever the he’ll she wants.

  87. TG March 31, 2010

    Oh my God ! This is sooooooooo terrible !!!!!
    This Sound and her great Voice ? A very big No Go !!!
    I really hate it !!! Sounds like Britney Spears meets Lady Gaga in a bad Way !!!

  88. roadsareendless March 31, 2010

    dirrty part 2? but i actually like it.
    and its not ‘futuristic’ its NOW.

  89. Kevin March 31, 2010

    The consumer is making upbeat/techno whatever songs hot right now.

    Don’t blame xtina for trying a new sound, especially if it’s working.

  90. kj March 31, 2010

    This is so a rip-off of britney’s blackout era n a bit of Gaga.
    SAD!!!!!. This song could have done with some tone down vocals. Gaga or Britney would tear this s*** up.

  91. TeamGAGA May 1, 2010

    uhh isn’t she a mother now? What a s***. It’s just funny how she pulls this s*** right after Gaga’s bad romance video. At least give it a couple of years if you’re going to copy someone else’s music video. Sheesh

  92. Silver May 30, 2010

    But… we’ve seen her all sexed up before. We’ve had the in-your-face sexuality. We’ve had the big platinum afro in Lady Marmalade.

    Just so tacky and expected.

  93. Silver May 30, 2010

    AND… I could barely understand what she was saying in that song. All I heard was rapid-fire slurring.

  94. Michelle June 5, 2010

    I def think Christina is following the trend. The video is too over sexed (why our youth is so messed up) and it is just not her. She needs to stick to being true to herself. That is what got her the 1st grammy and made her a legend. I hate fads.
