Pop diva Christina Aguilera has ample cause for celebration today. For, not only has her new single been well-received, it’s stormed straight to the top of the iTunes chart.
Details after the jump…
Xtina lent her vocals to ‘Say Something’ – the newest release from Indie-Pop duo A Great Big World. And following a haunting performance of the track on The Voice this week, the song has charged past the competition on US iTunes, where it currently sits at #1.
Having made a mega splash on the digital tally and currently gaining traction on mainstream radio, ‘Something’ looks poised to impact the Billboard Hot 100 next week in a major way.
More power to Christina!
We’re elated to see the commercial revival of Christina’s music career. Yes, she’s making them diva dollars over The Voice, yet – as keen supporters of her talent – we’ve long been salivating for a chart comeback. And while, last year’s (criminally underrated) ‘Lotus’ didn’t bring that moment, it’s clear Team Xtina are making the right power moves to ensure her next project is set up on the firmest of foundations.
Indeed, this January’s guest spot on Pitbull‘s Platinum-certified ‘Feel This Moment’ nabbed Aguilera yet another top 10 after peaking #8 on the Hot 100. While Flo Rida‘s latest single ‘How I Feel’, which she guests on, is being touted as a super smash-in-waiting.
Notice the pattern? Feature on a number of major hits, re-establish that radio presence, and then capitalize on it all when your own material arrives. Sounds like a potent plan to us!
