Rejoice: Christina Aguilera Readying ‘Back To Basics’ Sound For New Album

Published: Wednesday 17th Sep 2014 by Sam

Having delivered daughter Summer Rain last month, Christina Aguilera is putting the wheels in motion for her chart return.

The vocal powerhouse has made no secret of the fact that she’s working on a new album, the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Lotus’. Indeed, the diva had been piecing together the project throughout her pregnancy.

And with her and fiance Matt Rutler‘s new bundle of joy finally here, the 33-year-old is putting the pedal to the metal.

Find out how below…

Today talent sourcing website Music Gorilla sent out the following ad to its network of songwriters and producers:

Producer looking for songs for Christina Aguilera.

Looking for hip hop inspired songs for next LP. In the same vein as Back To Basics LP with DJ Premier:

Aint No Other Man:

Music Gorilla will be screening this opportunity.

Yes, yes, and yes! While the production of the as yet untitled set has been shroud in secrecy, the ad strongly hints at the direction Xtina will be taking. One we feel is super smart.

After all, with the charts once again favouring tracks with a throwback flair – as well as those with a more stripped back sound – no time seems more apt than the present for Aguilera to revisit exactly what she did on 2006’s ‘Back To Basics’. From where we’re standing, it’s exactly what the career comeback Dr ordered.

    If Mariah is doing 50K, be rest assured Xtina is doing somewhere in the ballpark of 30K to 40K, maybe less.

    Ariana Grande has taken both those divas’ spot (you mad or nah) with her mediocre sound that I enjoy.

    • Career Ender September 17, 2014

      you are a mediocre ass biatch yourself

    • xtinamimi September 17, 2014

      LOL! Ariana’s albums sold like 1m worldwide and both xtina and mimi have had albums hit the 20m mark. FYI lotus did 75k and the elusive chanteuse did 50 or 60. But I get it you were trying to be funny. Oh the delusion at Ariana selling more then them. DAY=Made

      • Stephy. September 17, 2014

        X-Tina has NEVER sold 20,000,000+ an album…

      • Legendtina September 17, 2014

        You’re misinformed darling. Christina Aguilera (debut album) has sold 20 million copies worldwide. Even E! News reported this in Xtina’s documentary last year.

      • Stephy. September 17, 2014

        They lied. That album is not on the worlds best selling albums list.

      • XYZ September 18, 2014

        yeah, they lied and you know it best…exactly… Christina sold 50 Million records worldwide…and we all know These numbers do not come from Bionic or Lotus…

      • xtinamimi September 18, 2014

        XThank you Legendtina!!. Xtina’s debut has sold 20 mil WW according to neilsen soundscan so unless ou have something intelligent to say stephy f*** off my comment!

    • CherylSoldierr September 17, 2014

      Again, stupid comment. Christina has a promo machine. She’s on the voice, and has been releasing top ten singles every year.

      aim for your faves lessors only

      • Mark111 September 17, 2014

        Off the back of t*** pop music in the late 90’s and stunts in 03. How your career over within 10 years. Legend she is not, icon she is not. But she is fat.

      • nope September 18, 2014

        Lmao… NO. She has THE most mediocre sales, considering the era she debuted in and what her market was. Britney, Backstreet boys and Nsync were pushing 25+ million an album and she managed to peak @ 17million with her best seller. Her t*** popstar peers were selling almost triple of what she moved. And she been on a steady decline ever since.
        CA – 17m
        Stripped – 12m
        B2B- 4.5m
        Bionic- LMFAO
        Lotus – Bwaahahhahaha

    • Legendtina September 17, 2014

      Nothing more boring then Aalyiah’s vocals or lack there of.

      • Mark111 September 17, 2014

        Ha! I’ll take Aaliyah smooth vocals over Xtina Fatulera loud, off key mess. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I’ma shade no.

    Anyway let’s here it Xtina, if it’s good you might just get my coins.

    • Career Ender September 17, 2014

      The way you always talk of those “coins” and buying albums in every post, an unsuspecting commentor would swear you are a rich/working surbuban boy
      Buy you’re not, you just another soweto shack dwelling poor creature who affords to eat chicken intestine as thee most prestigious meal you can afford

      • LB September 17, 2014

        Well maybe if you actually put the effort into buying music, Beyonce’s singles wouldn’t be flopping harder than her photoshop struggles

        back to basics was released in 2006 and sold 5.5 million copies. her collab with maroon 5 was #1 on the billbrd single chart for 6 or 7 weeks. it was in the top 10 for almost 12 weeks. it’s on largest selling singles in history list. she also a had a top 10 hit in 2014 with ‘pitbull’ and ‘great big world’. good record for an artist who’s been around 15 yrs.

      • nope September 18, 2014

        Back to basics sold *4.5m. You stans stay inflating. And that was a lowkey flop for someone whose last effort sold 12m. Meanwhile the other major releases at that time were able to sell 7m+. Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black slayed everyone, and she was the one with the true authentic throwback sound, and not that washed gimmicky vegas cabaret music Christina was giving on Back To Basics, thinking she was Billie Holiday or some s***. Fake ass blue eyed soul.

    I would prefer her being skinny again and going back to the “Stripped” era.
    This song right here always use to remind me of Whitney Houston’s “Queen Of The Night” with the vocals.

    • LB September 17, 2014

      I think you clicked on the wrong thread babe, the thread of delusions is in the Tinashe thread, click there.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan (Pre-Order “Aquarius” Now On iTunes) September 17, 2014

        No, what’s delusional and weird is that you’re so taken by my presence. Now please hang dry on the clothing line because you aren’t getting nothing from me.

      How does her body effect the music? I suppose when you stan for another talentless robot living in the house Janet built, looks are all you have. Sad.

    YAY!!!! I Loved Back To Basics!!! I Am Ready!!!!

  6. GEEZUS September 17, 2014

    Back 2 Basics is my favorite Xtina album. I remember being in middle school listening to that album. Understand, Hurt, Back In The Day, Slow Down Baby UGH!!! I’m about to go play it.

    • shaun September 17, 2014

      Slow Down BABY!!! My favorite song!!! I wish I was a single! I heard a rumor that it was supposed to be a single, but then she got pregnant. Puts a whole new meaning to the title now that I think about it…

      • LB September 17, 2014

        I think you meant, she struggles to count to ten

      • Career Ender September 17, 2014

        No. The only struggle is Jabba always getting clocked on twitter

      • SURPRISE……(DEC.13) September 17, 2014

        The only thing struggling is Rihjections’s vocals….Chile those vocals are struggling to live harder than victims of Ebola in Liberia..

  8. LB September 17, 2014

    Yes, I remember when they made that post about the Mariah photoshop scandal, they put that post up faster than Pretty hurts fell off the Bubbling under charts

      When that song gets a grammy , prepare to getscalped , Betty

    • let’s be real September 17, 2014

      please hunny.lets have Rihanna try to count to Beyonce net worth,or blue ivys to start with. Beyonce is Queen Rihanna is her court jester,hence her collection of hand me down nicki wigs…also Pretty hurts is an award winning song so-the delusion

  9. :( September 17, 2014

    Still gonna flop, sadly. Her time is up. She will be able to score a hit every now and then, but her reign as one of music’s big popstars is long gone.
    But i’m here for good music and most importantly good *singing*, get with a vocal coach and learn to stop screaming & caterwauling .

  10. Spirit September 17, 2014

    Who cares? 11K first week

  11. Theman September 17, 2014

    This album will be great.. If she gets a few radio hits then she’s on it !!

  12. Career Ender September 17, 2014

    I live fir the Tinashe stan. She effortlessly scalped Betty #hilarious

  13. Mercy September 17, 2014

    I adored back to basics. Without a doubt one of the greatest albums be female full stop. Can’t wait to see what she brings.

  14. JFB September 17, 2014

    You kids are FOOLS if you dot think Xtina is coming back to SLAY. Shes waaayyyy too talented NOT to. MARK MY WORDS this album will reintroduce Xtina back to the world and place her right back on her throne.

  15. Legendtina September 17, 2014

    This is what I love about Chrissy as an artist! She’s willing to work with unknown local producers and typically strays from the big name pop producers. That’s why Christina is a niche artist in her own lane. You’ll never hear about new girls coming up to replace her because they were poured into the same mold. I want an Adult Contemporary Love Me Back To Life type album, however a follow up to Back to Basics will slay. Christina already has her legacy and had her reign on top. Leave the sales to young girls like Taylor, Ariana, and Rihanna. Xtina needs to focus on QUALITY music, something with her heart into it.

  16. eric September 17, 2014

    That statement isn’t really saying much, because Back to Basics was a lot more than hip-hop; it was art, concept, style, big themes, big performances, etc.

  17. shaun September 17, 2014

    Xtina was like the first pop artist to start working with Sia…. I think they should just collaborate on a library of songs and see what happens.
    She should make an album of the best.
    I love their work together and individually and as a team, they’re magic. But I would like to see them collaborate on a song that isn’t a ballad.

  18. NOLIES September 17, 2014

    SHE IS OVER! Accept the mediocre music she and Brit gave when we were 7 & 8 and let it go. Xtina know she can’t sing AT ALL & I can’t stand her attitude. The only thing that b**** has to cling to for the last 5 years is the voice, and this alleged legacy that is all in her fans heads. #FlopGoSit

  19. CherylSoldierr September 17, 2014

    LB is such a stupid pressed bottom. I didn’t know you lived in South Africa. And you were trying North America? Death!!!!!

  20. BeyRihLiyah September 17, 2014

    where is that (s t d) having Bitttch Futureciara im still not done with that cumm basket welfare crack baby thot

  21. Alonso castro September 17, 2014

    Oh my god!!! I can’t wait!!! I love back to basics! Is such an amazing album

  22. 2 girls 1 cup September 17, 2014

    Can’t wait! Really excited for this one hopefully she releases it early next year, and dead the the pressed queens the hate is real lmao! The haters are usually the first one to comment lol

    • NOLIES September 18, 2014

      Pressed? Does Xtina sing on key? Exactly. No one likes XXLtina anymore. Her only relevancy is being on a hook and a spin off of American Idol. She hasn’t seen multiplatinum WW for Damn near a decade, she is HORRIBLE live act, and she has one of the most terrible personalities and attitudes EVER. F*** her! She will flop harder than AKA or the Divorcing Chanteuse.

      • 2 girls 1 cup September 18, 2014

        GURL bye look how pressed you
        Are over XXLTINA, she has you stressed relax honey is not that serious lol #thestruggleisreal lmao

      • rich86 September 23, 2014

        Hmmm,the haters are always the ones to comment first. B**** have many seats,the fact you are here running around like a pressed basic tired h** shows you are more obsessed with christina than her own fans. I`m sure you`ll be the first to go purchase the album. So stop being so pressed and get off your lame ass,go look for a job and stop living off food stamps.

  23. J.E September 18, 2014

    Well at least most of the Girls topping the charts now admittedly has been inspired by Christina… Like Meghan, Taylor (who was so stunned over an Xtina’s performance), Katy Perry, Iggy, etc. Even Beyonce, have praised Xtina.
    She already made her mark. For her, it’s about quality music now. I will buy a copy of her CD soon it will arrive.

  24. JOHNVIDAL September 18, 2014

    She better serve better material. Lotus wasn´t good. It had a few good songs but it became forgettable quickly. Bionic was much better. Another problem is that her voice is not in a good state (well she has always sounded a mess half of the time from the begining, but you know, it has got worse in the last 4 years). She has to use it like she does in songs like S** for Breakfast and the likes or it´s a wrap.

    • CherylSoldierr September 18, 2014

      Self drag. Mariah & celine.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 18, 2014

        We are discussing Xtina, not anyone else. But now that you mention them: they are well in their 40s and have done everything, way more than xtina and all these girls could ever dream of. I don´t see your point. Mariah´s last album was great (apart from personal like any real songwriter´s album is), Lotus wasn´t. And I don´t see Celine or Mariah being unable to sound effortlessly beautiful at some point of their careers. Again, not Xtina´s case. So, how was my comment self drag? You are one more of those who are too much into nothing, just trying fight in the Internet.

  25. Nick September 18, 2014

    Christina Aguilera is on of my favorite female singers, and Back To Basics is one of my favorite albums, but I don’t think if she wants a big come back, she should do a throw back album again. I think She needs to mix some urban, contemporary r&b and ratchet sounds with her next album.

    even if xtina’s highest selling album was 17 million (some claim 20 million is inflated…as if xtina’s the only one with inflated sales) she still was the second highest selling female pop singer during that era. nsync and backstreet boys may have sold more back in the day but who has had 3 top 10 singles in the last 3 years(1 of which was # 1 on billboard)? even though they were collabs the were still hits.

  27. dotti September 19, 2014

    what’s unusual about an artist’s sales to sliding after 15 years. britney’s sales have also gone down hill. ‘lotus’ 290k ‘britney jean’ 209k. jlo has stinkin’ cd sales and movie ticket sales as just bad. the media still hype her as if she’s the second coming of beyonce.

  28. Cuntina Piguilera September 19, 2014

    More nasty ass screaming like a donkey having a heart attack, no thank you!
