Christina Aguilera‘s comeback campaign cruises in to full speed with the premiere of brand new song ‘Accelerate.’
The hard-hitting jam sees Xtina team with Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz; it’s being issued as the first taste of the diva’s eighth studio album ‘Liberation.’Array
Word is that the cut is receiving the instant-grat treatment for anyone who pre-orders its parent LP (due June 15th). Hence, jury’s out on whether it’s Aguilera’s “lead single.”
What is for sure is that ‘Accelerate’ is here! So what are you waiting for? Fire up new Christina after the jump…
Indeed, while the track packs on familiar Xtina-isms vocally, sonically it’s a refreshing change of pace that quite literally changes pace at various points throughout.
Sprinkled within are elements of R&B, trap, and Pop.
It’s a risk and we envisiage the material on the way will skew more mainstream.
But in the here and now, we’re feeling this on the merit of her sounding great, the unique production, and inspired lyrics.
If we had any gripe, it’s that Ty Dolla $ign sounded like he needed a throat lozenge, however after a few spins his contribution is less grating and dare we say…works.
