    Let The Be love instrumentals sounds like MDNA’s Girl Gone Wild! but just on a different Tempo.

    • Rihanna Navy November 1, 2012

      LOVE WHAT I HEARD. I always love when she sings ballads her voice is so soulful and at it’s best when she does…

  2. Dave October 31, 2012

  5. christinastherealtalent October 31, 2012

    It sounds like this album is all her albums put together and I f****** love it!

    I wish the standard edition had more songs but ill be buying the deluxe anyway. The ballads are the best on this album.

    Her voice is definitely still in tact and powerful!

  6. It’s Utterly Bizaar! October 31, 2012

    I love what I’m hearing! #Excited #Can’tWait

  7. Lolax October 31, 2012

  9. Nahjee October 31, 2012

    NO disrespect to Christina.. But I just wanna say congrats to Taylor swift the girls fan base is UNSTOPABLE! She moves units like its nothing it’s sad for all you hating b******.

    • Peter G October 31, 2012

      Please be quite.

    • BOB November 1, 2012

      whats this got to do with swift? shes boring as hell anyways and is not as talented as xtina
      swift is for 10 year old children who think they can relate to her songs

  10. DIOB October 31, 2012

    EXCITED!!!!!!! every song was different but made the album sound really complete. I Love cease fire and blank page so far

  11. IOTA October 31, 2012

    Buying! Damn they really sped YOUR BODY all the way up lol

  12. Peter G October 31, 2012

    What’s up with ask the profanity? I have a grim image in my head of someone sitting on Xtina’s chubby middle finger. Album sounds good tho.

    • Peter G October 31, 2012


  13. cumonme October 31, 2012

    YES XTINA GURRRL. Cant wait Lotus OMG . BUYING

  14. Realest October 31, 2012

    Follow me on twitter and Instagram mario_miguelito

  15. Nahjee October 31, 2012

    Again…no disrespect to christina but we all know this will flop,perhaps just as hard as bionic,ryt….besides,she’s fat,overweight,thick and large

    • Peter G October 31, 2012

      Sounds very disrespectful.

    • Dee October 31, 2012

      No disrespect to Xtina then you proceed to post disrespectful comments. Why do people do that?

      She may be fat or thick, but that woman has soul and a voice 95% of the industry couldn’t even dream of having.

      • Peter G October 31, 2012

        Don’t jump on your high house. I don’t say no disrespect to then disrespect. You might as we’ll say your piece and be done with it.

      • Peter G October 31, 2012

        *house=horse. What the f**** up with my spell check!

    • psh October 31, 2012

      quit being a fake ass pressed mother f*****… and at least own ur hate. you’re OBVIOUSLY intending disrespect

    • Dee November 1, 2012

      eh? I was responding to Nahjee.

      • Peter G November 1, 2012

        Oh soz lol I thought it was Nahjee saying that to me lol. Where’s my glasses!

    • DionneLee November 1, 2012

      Nahjee is everyone in the world or the entertainment business supposed to be skinny? For one thing Xtina isnt fat, shes just not skinny like she used to be and so what? why does everyone think that everyone should be thin? That irks the hell out of me. your body is probably f***** up while trying to diss hers. the people who are the most unattractive usually are the ones trying to diss others.

  16. Gilberto October 31, 2012

    ‘Army Of Me’ sounds good, but the rest… Well, they sound safe. I know that she’s trying to recover from Bionic era, but these new songs sound so uninspiring that make them boring.

    • mr.m November 1, 2012

      you know you’re buyin’ to dotcha? lol
      Lotus >>>>> al Thiefyonce’s career 😀

    • LOTUSCHRIST November 1, 2012

      WE THE RUN THE WORLD X200 is inspiring huh…..*play diamonds and love your body.

    • JAZMINE SULLIVANS FAN November 1, 2012

      B****, please! Go listen to Diana Krall or Frank Sinatra and leave pop music alone!



      • Rafa November 4, 2012

        or he is gay or Britney or Gaga fan SOMETHING LIKE THAT…..obviously a hater……so stupid guy from FAVELAS!!

  17. She’s It ! October 31, 2012

    AMAZING !!! really knocked it out of the park Christina !!

  18. Dee October 31, 2012

    She’s baaaaaaack! Good lord woman. I hated Bionic except for the tracks on the deluxe edition. This is more her. Personal lyrics and THAT voice. I loved ‘Your Body’ but from the snippets it sounds like she released the weakest song as her lead single. I want a performance of “Just a Fool” on The Voice. Oh and sampling the MMC theme song in MtWM? Yeah, I’m here for that.

  19. Monstarebel October 31, 2012

    Sounds like some decent songs on here…

    • all4u1 November 1, 2012

      Yes maam!

  20. OMG October 31, 2012

    I want to slay the pig!!!

  21. R****** Navy: Broke,Ugly & bitter October 31, 2012

    Chile! These songs sound uninspired & dated. Poor Xtina, she just can never get it right.

    • mr.m November 1, 2012

      Just wait and see how your fave will be slayed 😀
      Especially her fat negro nose will be gone .. bye hun woho

      • DionneLee November 1, 2012

        racist b****

  22. nikko October 31, 2012

    ALl the songs sound the same….. NEXT!……

    • mr.m November 1, 2012

      pressed much?

  23. Joseph Vryheid October 31, 2012

    There was maybe two or three that I liked.
    Kind of disappointing.

    Stripped was a classic.
    Lotus is conformity.

    • ronnoc November 1, 2012

      if she released stripped now, nobody would buy it. music has changed since then. although i agree stripped is amazing

    • mr.m November 1, 2012

      Y’all who’s been slayed by the standard version SHOULD listen to the other 3 deluxe tracks .. you’ll be salyed till eath!!!! Xtina is coimg HARD y’all AHHHHH!

    • mr.m November 1, 2012

      Y’all who’s been slayed by the standard version SHOULD listen to the other 3 deluxe tracks .. you’ll be slayed till eath!!!! Xtina is coimg HARD y’all AHHHHH!

  24. @THE_MALEMADONNA October 31, 2012

    People are so stupid… Christina Aguilera has more TALENT in her right thumb then half of these chicks in the industry. FIGHTERS BUY THIS ALBUM AND PUT OUR GIRL BACK ON TOP !

  25. LoveHoney October 31, 2012

    I’m def. buying this album. Your Body was a nice song but with good songs, they don’t always equal good plays on the radio. But this album is given me life. I’ll def. be getting Lotus Nov 13th. I trusted the reviews here and brought 2/11 by Brandy, so I’ll trust the reviews again, and get slayed twice back 2 back.


  26. Ugh! Really October 31, 2012

    I’m sure I’ll love it, I love all her albums, I just need to hear the whole thing. Some of these snippets did nothing for me…

  27. Beyonce’s Weave October 31, 2012

    OMG I cannot wait, So freaking ready for LOTUS.

  28. all4u1 October 31, 2012

    I can’t wait to hear the album in it’s entirety. Judging by the snippets, the album seems to be solid and refreshing.

    I can’t wait!!

  29. La Aguilera November 1, 2012

    Saying these snippets sound uninspired? You’ve got to be kidding me! These snippets alone slay everyone in the game right now! I can’t stand when people hate on true talent! Her vocals & the production sound amazing from what I can tell…I didn’t want to even listen to them prior to buying Lotus but I am so glad I did!!!! I get it & I have been moved…So proud to be an Xtina fan! The songs sound so universal, like everyone can vibe to them regardless of genre preference. I also feel like once I have the album, my favorite song will change everyday, IMO a quality of an amazing album, it’s a mood album…Well worth the wait!! IDK if the new album will be a “commercial success” or not, because apparently she’s too talented & real for people’s taste LOL, but she did the damn thing!

  30. ronnoc November 1, 2012

    IN LOVE with this! the only negative thing i can say is i kinda wish there was less electro and more songs like “best of me”. but at the same time i want her to be back on top and electro is in right now. cannot wait to get my copy on the 13th. xtina always delivers

  31. Dyllypickles November 1, 2012


    The snippets sound GREAT.

    She’ll be getting my $.

  32. christinastherealtalent November 1, 2012

    Haters are always going to hate. Whether Christina is thick or skinny, wins or flops, happy or sad, single or taken…you just cant win with them. If she loses the weight, the haters will call her anorexic or bellemic, if she’s happy haters will say she’s faking it, if she’s mad or sad haters will call her a bitter b****, if she dresses more conservatively haters will say she looks old…haters are like an old broken record player.

    If Christina does more ballads, the haters will accuse her of trying to be like Adele (even though a lot of them say she should stick to big ballads and a non commercial sound), she can’t win with that either because even if she does more commercial music, the haters will accuse of her trying to rip off of everybody else.

    Haters will always be against Christina because she is a true threat to all those other manufactured gimmicks who are untalented and rely on cheap tactics just to stay relevant. They will never show growth in their music like Christina does and their relevancy will not be as thick or strong when they are in their 10th year, like Christinas is.

  33. Amy November 1, 2012

    7.49% of the people who voted either have no ears or are Gaga fans. Only logical conclusions to why you wouldn’t enjoy these clips! (Unless you aren’t a pop fan) LOVE IT. I will be buying and my ears will get a taste of heaven!

    • Rafa November 4, 2012

      of course all this people hating are Gaga fans…. poor people……they are sad because their “GAGA” will never be able to create talent music as Christina does…

  34. mr.m November 1, 2012

    Y’all who’s been slayed by the standard version SHOULD listen to the other 3 deluxe tracks .. you’ll be salyed till eath!!!! Xtina is coimg HARD y’all AHHHHH!

  35. christinastherealtalent November 1, 2012

    I’m kinding feeling this is what Bionic should’ve been. Like this was what Christinas original vision for it was before her label f***** everything up to pit her against all the other females.

    • irene46 November 1, 2012

      i don’t care what anyone says, bionic was greaaat. although i wasn’t that crazy for nmt she brought it with the rest.

      i loved birds of prey, woohoo, vanity, lift me up, you lost me etc.

  36. My hip, my back November 1, 2012

    Better than Rita Ora’s “Ora” but not quite as good as Two Eleven

  37. X November 1, 2012

    What is Christina doing? Can’t she realize Stripped is what made her famous. She is way better than this pop nonsense and should be going back to the raw and jazz tones of Stripped. I understand this album is a ploy to sell albums but if we are going according to record sales, maybe she might want to take a queue from Adele. With her incredible voice, she needs to make sure she stands herself apart from the norm…maybe next time?

    • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

      I’m glad she didn’t stay the same. She’s trying to evolve with the times. And TBH, I am sick of electro music and the dance craze but I’d rather hear xtina’s vocals rather than Rihanna and Katy Perry over a loud dance track.

  38. Robin November 1, 2012

    Blank Page is Beautifull 2.0 !!!!!

    This will be all epic !! Love it !!

  39. KD November 1, 2012

    She’ll be lucky if she sells 200K 1st week. After the catastrophe that was Bionic’s sales she needed to come back with a BIG loud ass BANG and honestly speaking “Your Body” is hardly smashing the charts.

    • MaginaMonroe November 1, 2012

      Honestly thats her labels fault…waht promo has she gotten or done???? NOTHING

    • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

      It’s moderatey performing on the charts. That’s still better than it bombing which a lot of her haters wish would happen. Y would they want someone so talented to fail? Lame ass ppl.

  40. MRDIVABITCH November 1, 2012

    The Good: Her middle-low register sounds warm and very nice

    The Bad: Many of the songs sound like last year’s Rihanna B-sides

    The Ugly: Why so many songs for her “haters”? I feel she dedicated the whole damn album to people like me, LOL. It comes off as bitter and insecure.

    • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

      Excuse me but in what universe do you actually think you are that significant to Xtina. Yeah, you might be a music and voice expert/scholar (so you like to brag) but I don’t think she actually invests time to worry about negative opinions like yours. She’s a multi millionaire and grammy winner and received lots of accolades from her artisty and career. And fyi, she’s versatile. Been doing different styles of song like these (see ‘Stripped’ i.e “I’m ok”, “Soar”) on each and every album except her first one since pop was the craze of the late 90’s.

      Bitter and insecure? Keep reaching. Weirdo. SMH. Lol.

      • MRDIVABITCH November 1, 2012

        And yet she records song after song to address her “haters”. For someone who “doesn’t care about negative opinions” that seems awfully strange. So…get off my d***.

    • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

      I’ve only heard her address her haters on the interlude of “stripped” which was cuz of bad press. And what other song after song do you speak of? I guess that would make you insecure and bitter too since you take time out to address your haters? Smh…
      Oh and plz continue staying on her d*** as well. Makes her more famous.

      And these songs sound nothing like Rihanna. Maybe Adele though.

    • Xadax November 1, 2012

      @MRDIVABITCH um, many? They’re only 3. It has more love than hate. Ur totally guilty.

  41. Sleazy November 1, 2012

    Wow sounds amazing I’m a little worried cus there has been NO promo *stressed face* but her first week numbers will be good she just needs to Push and push the album

  42. the real xoxo November 1, 2012

    let there be love sounds like girls gone wild.

  43. honest November 1, 2012

    This album will flop….Christina has had chance after chance to release a new single after seeing that your body was flopping and still nothing… You never can judge an album by snippets. I did with 2/11 and was sorely disappointed when I brought the actual product.Here’s hoping she goes gold this time.
    This album has no buzz(aside from stans),no big single and public opinion of her hasn’t soften even with her being on the voice. Its sad to see our great talents fade away but Christina,Beyonce,Kelly, Britney,Pink,Kelly Clarkson all of those artist are fading and nothing their stanbase can say to deny it.

    • BOB November 1, 2012

      Last time i checked PINK just had a number one album and
      and her single was top ten for a long time still is
      her tours always sell out and did in england in like ten mins she had to put on extra uk dates
      er thats no flop or fading star

      Beyonce will never fade her last era was messy promo wise and some wrong singles released she still sold well
      and im sure will again in the future she even said she wanted to manger herself learn from her mistakes hope she learns

      Kelly just done a successful tour and not really had a dip since my December

      britney is on a major tv show last album had major hits off it top ten

      agree with messy xtina comeback thats all

      but 2.11 is amazing album
      but how is anyone else fading really?? if thats fading id LOVE to fade ha! its winning to me

    • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

      I actually didn’t really like Brandy’s album besides the two songs “PID” and “Wildest Dreams” a lot of the songs sounded the same and she kept using the same singing register in every song. Kinda boring.

      Good thing about Xtina is that you will never hear her use the same tone. And her music has an unpredictable sound to it.

    • Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ November 1, 2012

      What?! “Two Eleven” is a GREAT album! Anyway, to each his/her own I guess.

      In terms of X, I’ve simply come to realize that, at this point in her career, “Stripped” will remain my favorite album from her. I like stripped down, jazz, live instrumentation Christina, with a dash of hip-POP influence. Oh well….

      She seems to continue to push her sound and I can definitely appreciate that about her. I am definitely going to preview the album in its entirely & I’ll determine whether or not I’ll purchase it after that listen.

  44. LaLa November 1, 2012

    Can’t wait for them all.
    Judging by the snippets, I love:

    Lotus (intro)
    Blank Page
    Empty Words
    Red Hot Kinda Love

  45. Aynon November 1, 2012

    Why why why isn’t she promoting she’s going to flop again the woman could have had a smash album if she would promote properly.

  46. JOHNVIDAL November 1, 2012

    I´m always late
    I can´t listen to any of the snippets. And I can´t trust anyone cos most of you are biased schizophrenics. For some people it is great, amazing, crazy production and great vocals… and for others it is generic pop and she should be doing more than this
    I guess I´ll have to wait

    • ronnoc November 1, 2012

      go listen to the youtube video someone posted in the comments

      • ronnoc November 1, 2012

        i revoke that statement. lol

    • LaLa November 1, 2012

      Good, just wait for the release date. so far the tracks are more cohesive than Bionic. but still has the flavor of the electronic thing like Monday Morning, etc. The Intro is haunting just like when you enter a dream or something.

      • JOHNVIDAL November 1, 2012

        Well… thanks for the info

    • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

      She’s a pop artist. Duh. Given all that, it still stands for the term “popular” but not all pop music is bad. (examples: Whitney, MC, and your fave Celine) I don’t think I’ve heard any songs by her that were generic since the songs sound like no one else. I’llet that be your opinion. But I wouldn’t be quick to call her basic or generic. I’ll leave that to ppl like katy annd rihanna or britney. Xtina actually has a useful instrument and can sing different styles of music jazz, rock, rnb unlike like the other 3

      • JOHNVIDAL November 1, 2012

        I know. I´ve never said she is generic. I said some people say one thing and some other people say the opposite about the snippets. Since I can´t listen to it I´ll have to wait
        Did I say something wrong?

  47. PrettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

    Cant wait to hear the full songs. She’s like a more talented version of Adele. So much power in her voice. Let the slaying begin!

  48. MC (Benron’s #1 stan) November 1, 2012

    I can’t see or hear anything :/ If by what majority of you are saying it is another Stripped/B2B mixed together?!?! I don’t know if its true or stan talking, I guess I’ll just have to wait to see. I think if Xtina has strong material and promotes properly she will definitely succeed. *Patiently waits for Beautiful 2.0 and Stripped 2.0*

      • MC (Benron is my soulmate/husband) November 1, 2012

        I haven’t seen the interview. Thank you so much for posting the snippets! You are the best Fighter, definitely my favorite. All of the snippets sounded promising and a re-creation of Stripped! I am definitely excited to see how this turns out; I can’t wait to hear more.

      • LaLa November 1, 2012

        Your welcome & Thank you dear 😉

        btw, this is the Billboard interview When you see this interview, you will get it (her real persona).

      • LaLa November 1, 2012

        *She mentioned Linda Perry – Mariah Carey near end of the video I think. But the whole video is great to watch (from Part 1 – Part 3) which I post bellow but “holding for moderation”

      • MC (Benron is my soulmate/husband) November 1, 2012

        “holding for moderation” —- it won’t show up; its another way of saying its deleted. Thank you so much for posting this. She came of as a real, honest person. I get what she was saying (Sam) twisted the words and made it sound like a diss. Anyways thanks.

  49. prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 1, 2012

    Ppl actually want her to go back to a sound from 2003. I CANT. That’s just like Michael Jckson going back to his thriller days. An 80’s sound. Clearly his voice blended in with the times of 2002 and proves he can still sing contemporary r&b i.e”Butterflies” , “heaven can wait” and “Break of dawn”

  50. Caramelboi November 1, 2012

    Xtina is backkkkkkkk to slayyy…….I am ready to buy 2 copies nov. 13. She’s going back to the top of the charts. She is thick and curvy not fat. When did weight ever has to do anything with a persons talent? Not to compare adele with xtina but adele is a lot bigger then her but she just stand there and sang and she still sells. I like them both no matter their size.

  51. Chrystal November 1, 2012

    I like what i’ve heard so far. I need to hear the full album to really pass fair judgment on it. I’ll buy it after hearing the full tracks.

  52. @THE_MALEMADONNA November 1, 2012

    This is EPIC s***… She sounds so current yet so futuristic yet so UNPREDICTABLE… Uhhhh… IM HAVING A SEIZURE

  53. twaz November 1, 2012

    WOW! These snippets are such a TEASE!
    This album sounds amazing just by these!
    I just pre-orderded my copy on iTunes!!!

  54. TeamXtina November 2, 2012

    Your Body is still on the billboard hot 100. Xtina is going to start promoting the song closer to the Lotus album release. It still has the possibility to become a hit once she performs on The Voice and at the American Music Awards. Moves Like Jagger took awhile to reach #1 so can your body.
