Christina Aguilera’s Next ‘Lotus’ Single Confirmed

Published: Friday 16th Nov 2012 by Sam

After ample debate and speculation, Christina Aguilera‘s team have finally confirmed which song from her ‘Lotus’ LP will be awarded the single treatment.

Without further adeiu…

As per RCA, the follow-up to ‘Your Body’  is…

Just A Fool (ft. Blake Shelton)




Yes, yes, and yes!

Having hit #13 on iTunes without any form of push, it was overtly clear what Aguilera’s fans and more importantly the general public wanted as the LP’s next offering.

‘Your Body’ may have peaked at a respectable #34 on the Hot 100 (without a single performance to back it, we must add), but with the industry being what it is and Aguilera needing a hit at all-costs, this was not just the right decision but (honestly) the only decision. A decision we’re glad Team Xtina made, as -having done “this” for almost 6 years – we’ve seen many an obvious single choice ignored, ultimately leading to the premature death of many a promising project.

Here’s hoping the Claude Kelly penned cut helps give ‘Lotus’ legs so as to strut towards the upper echelon of the album tally – even if it’s a slow, yet eventual rise.

Your thoughts?

    Smart choice team Xtina. This is and “let there be love” are the best song on the album. This should help the album sell. RCA seriously sucks…..I mean Brandy and Xtina should not be getting these weak numbers…..C’mon team Xtina, shove your way through to make this album happen. I don’t even see it on itunes at the moment.

    The song is ok… most likely will be a hit on the country charts!! Good Luck XXltina

  3. My Forehead Tho November 16, 2012

    She f***** up any chance of selling this album when she pulled a Rihanna on The Voice.

    The song is brilliant though…

    • Jer November 17, 2012

      I didnt see her being fierce and serving s** goddess realness so gurlbye

  4. ArmyOfXtina November 16, 2012

    TGJ are psychic. Haven’t you guys been pushing for this to be a single since last week?

      • ronnoc November 16, 2012

        rca chose this song because of it’s itunes position, not because of a post on lol just saying…

    • HOTSTUFF November 17, 2012

      yea just like when they said diamonds was flopping….

  5. Lolax November 16, 2012

    Let there be love >>>>>>>

  6. Beautifuileira November 16, 2012

    This is how you know the labels read the blogs. Sam has been saying this should be a single for weeks!

  7. JJFan1814 November 16, 2012

    “Hang it up, flat screen.” *in my best nicki voice*

  8. Beyonce Carter November 16, 2012

    Chile this has absolutely nothing about reading blogs, especially this ghetto s*** for a blog. Just look at the single doing great on iTunes, hence why this is the next single!!!

    • name November 17, 2012

      If it is a ghetto s*** then why are you reading?

  9. HoldItAgainstMe November 16, 2012

    Depending on Blake to get a number one. Tut tut tut. Floptina has really fallen off the charts and the treadmill.

    good choice! love this song. hope it does the job.

  12. Sal November 16, 2012

    Amazing song

  13. AmbeRussell November 16, 2012

    ppl must forgot about 3 albums in the past few yrs, the ductess, fame and doo-wops. fame sold less that 20k in its first week of release and look at it now. the right single will push this album with the right promo.
    great single choice, blake is a huge country success since the show, and it’s winter so slow songs work well here, or at least in the past they did better in winter/late fall compared to summer/ warm months. world move is a spring release, let there be love summer/spring, and if the album does well, red hot kinda love released with blank pagefor end of 2013 and sing for me for the grammy awardswith current single. this ONLY will be possible if she starts to promote the right way. go to wendy, ellen, the view, the chew, jay leno, jimmy, cohan, carson, more radio interview, s*** go on 106 and park again. BUT talk about the album and new music, not just the voice

    o and tone the f*** up. u obviously cant perform like u used to bc of ur weight. u dont even gotta get to a size 0, but dont be out of shape. the type of performer she is isnt one that fits her body shape. yes there are a ton of plus size, bigger shaped girls singing and doing well, BUT they are not pop singers o and she needs to go on snl again. s*** ur on nbc already, host and be a performer. and idk why brandy aint do that s*** smdh

    Xtina needs to step up her promo game there is no reason y this album should flop she is a talented artist it would be a shame if she was chucked in the has been pile im rooting for yah

  16. JER November 16, 2012

    Ummmm it was performed on The Voice how is that not promotion IT’s currently at #27 on iTunes, we’ll see where it’s at on the sales chart. Holding a position on iTunes for…. minutes is nothing to brag about. Call me when she’s in the Top 10 for months even with a barage of countdown songs and singles dropping

    • MC November 16, 2012

      She performed “Make the world move” with Cee lo….or did she perform this song on The Voice too? IDK I don’t watch it so……

      • irene46 November 16, 2012

        she and cee lo performed ‘make the world move’.

        you’re missing a good show. all the judges are awesome and fun to watch not annoying and pretentious like simone cowell.

      • MC November 16, 2012

        lol….I don’t watch TV that’s why I don’t watch The Voice.

    • AmbeRussell November 16, 2012

      only 1 song was performed on the voice this past week. that sure is a lot of promo…

  17. PrettigurlrockD Bitchess November 16, 2012

    Ehhh this isn’t epic like her other ballads. I also wanted let there be love to be the next single. I’m still sad at how the album sucks too :((((

  18. Nichole November 16, 2012

    It was apparent that JAF was gonna be the next single because of its success on iTunes thanks to Blake and Country fans.

    Christina needs to get a smash hit ON HER OWN.

  19. Beyonce’s Weave November 16, 2012

    I really like this song, I think it is a good choice, plus country fans will buy it because Blake Shelton is on it. This might even help move Lotus off the shelves. Good choice, Don’t forget to purchase your copy of Unapologetic Nov 19.

  20. WhiteBoi November 16, 2012

    Stop tryn to make christina happen, shes not gonna happen

    • Jeff November 17, 2012

      Can me and you happen?

      • WhiteBoi November 17, 2012



  21. Remey November 17, 2012

    This puzzles me all the time. You have an artist with so much potential, but it all goes away because of terrible PR.

    How do you expect LOTUS to make as big of a commercial hit when there is absolutely NO PROMO! The Voice is not promo. True promo takes your music to all channels of distribution. It’s as if XTINA’s team woke up one morning and said, O s***! We forgot the promo behind this LP.”

    Promo can turn something great into something magical! You see the difference it did between Rihanna’s Loud vs Talk That Talk. Both were good albums, but Loud was considered better because of it’s clear PR. When an era is all over the place, unclear, or not present, fans get confused and lose interest….which means your music better be good (hence why TTT still prevailed).

  22. mobwife: “Nobody’s Perfect”….well, but me November 17, 2012

    Did I miss the post on her 1st week CD sells figure? 0_o

    Anywho, this next song ft Blake “disgusting ADULTERER who left his pretty wife for an UGLY cheap H**” Sheldon, should go over big. He is very popular in the world of Country music. And let’s be honest, Country like Pop & Hip Hop are the most supported genres. She is doing well to find a “country niche” like Kelly Clarkson!

  23. The Perrylicious Is Taking Over… November 17, 2012

    I’m not a huge fan of xtina. But honestly, she has a great voice and i love it. People please give her chances to be back on Pop radar. This so is amazing. For her 3rd single, Empty Words would be perfect. Btw, Scream & Shout going to slay pop charts in next few months. Good luck Legendary Britney!

  24. MRDIVABITCH November 17, 2012

    HAHA! Another flop. If she were smart she would have released “Army of Me”

    • Pop Royalty (The International Navy’s Representative) November 17, 2012

      you clearly lack the basic requirements to call someone a “flop” .

    • all4u1 November 17, 2012

      @ Diva

      You’re a flop to keep checking for her! You have no life!!!

  25. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare November 17, 2012

    Yep, smart move indeed. Then she should release ‘Let There Be Love.”

    Not because I like either song b/c I don’t but only b/c it’s a smart marketing plan.

    Whatever, *bumps* “Get Mine, Get Yours.”

  26. williNalli November 17, 2012


  27. YEAKELLY November 17, 2012

    Singles order should be:

    1.) Your Bidy
    2.) Just A Fool
    3.) Let there Be Love
    4.)Light Up The Sky
    5.)Empty Words or Make the World Move

    Granted, there needs to be success from the second single and the album to even warrant a third single, but if success does come I think this is a smart plan to keep the ball rolling.

  28. WHEN B****** FLOP”THATS THAT S*** I DONT LIKE” November 17, 2012


  29. HoneyB November 17, 2012

    Yass! love the song xtina sounds PERFECT on it <3

  30. Pop Royalty (The International Navy’s Representative) November 17, 2012

    i saw her team and her finally showed interest in “lotus”.

    great choice.

    i think this song will do as great as ” nobody wants to be lonely” back in the day.

  31. mike November 17, 2012

    Christina’s cd is all over the place. We were promised a STRIPPED type cd and we got a back 2 basics flop like cd mixed with some bionic ballads. Christina aguilera is all over the place. She does these live performances and sounds so soulful but her cd’s LACK SOUL. Who is she? Just make a soulful cd it works for you….stop making these part Celine dion part UK bullcrap mid-tempo’s.

    This girl is so arrogant to think she can just make junk and the public will buy it. Make a soulful CD christina….a smokey bluesy cd. damn. is that so hard.

    • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare November 17, 2012

      “Just make a soulful cd it works for you…Make a soulful CD christina….a smokey bluesy cd. damn. is that so hard.”

      Yes!!!!! I need “Loving Me For Me” Christina. & we KNOW she can do it!

  32. Peter G November 17, 2012

    I don’t like country music but I actually thought this was the best song from the album. Wish that Blake guy wasn’t on it as much though.

  33. Moody ToXic November 20, 2012

    IMO she MUST have chosen “Best Of Me”, best ballad on this album…

    Choosing Your Fat Body as a debut single was a dead wrong choice that screwed up her album sales anyway, but she still could choose more than one ballad… Next single choices imo should be: Army Of Me, Best Of Me and Cease Fire…

  34. JRDASHING November 23, 2012

    Christina is so great and it’s sad how the media only concentrates on her weight over the awsome music and postive messages she spreads. The world needs to quit hating on such a great artist and concentrate on slamming the auto tuned bimbos I hear on the radio. Christinas “Your Body” was repeatedly voted the hottest song on AT top40 week after week and yet it only peaked at #22. CRAZY!!!She is gorgeous and wonderful!!
