Christina Aguilera may be on a hiatus of sorts, yet that hasn’t stopped the Pop powerhouse from nabbing another #1 on the Billboard charts.
Details after the jump…
The diva’s latest triumph comes courtesy of ‘Let There Be Love’ – a Max Martin produced club anthem featured on her recent studio album ‘Lotus’.
This week saw the cut, which has been a That Grape Juice favourite, rocket to #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Songs tally – during its first “official” week of release. An “LOL” to some, yet a #1 nonetheless. ‘Love’ becomes Aguilera’s seventh song to top the chart.
For us, the feat is somewhat bittersweet. Indeed, while it’s great to see such a deserving number receive some kind of recognition, we feel it could have achieved so much more had it been given the “proper” single treatment (one decent performance on The Voice, and a terrible one at the AMA’s will not suffice). Why? Because next to ‘Your Body’ (also produced by Martin), it’s the best thing she has released in years.
Still, with Xtina back to being Xtina (take from that what you will), we’re hopeful she’ll back her next project to the fullest.
For now, though, bask in the Pop brilliance that is ‘Let There Be Love’ below…
