New Video: Christina Aguilera – ‘Accelerate (ft. Ty Dolla $ign & 2 Chainz)’

Published: Thursday 3rd May 2018 by Sam

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.’

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…

It’s definitely…different.

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.

Your thoughts?

  3. Gurlwepa89 May 3, 2018

    I want to like the song, maybe a few more listen. I was hoping for more.

  4. Jeans May 3, 2018

    Yasssss! I hope it goes #1 on itunes

  5. Jeans May 3, 2018

    Hmmm, don’t know how I feel it.

  6. Erica May 3, 2018

    Definitely different, she has my interest

  7. Yan May 3, 2018

    It’s not bad but I don’t see it as single material. Will radio play this?

  8. pat May 3, 2018

    I was ready to drag, but I think I like it. I hope she gets back to dancing too.

  9. L May 3, 2018

    Being 37 and having a 5.5 year break from music
    AND releasing something different like this???
    this is just SO RISKY and might not work for her
    the song is something new and the video is so simple
    I do not understand the concept yet..
    I AM a fighter and am not sure about this ..
    Xtina is always a risk taker (except lotus) and this is what SHE wants
    The song might be a grower, and be big with a lil support from radio
    AM SURE this album is going to be amazing. the is just a tease.

  11. Hmmm May 3, 2018

    The song is awful, I don’t know what everyone else is listening to. It’s unpleasing to the ears. You’re a divorced, 37 year old with 2 small children that’s been on hiatus for years and this desperate, s**-soaked mess is what you come back with? GTFO

      If beyonce can have 3 kids then go onstage half naked and do her repetitive stripper moves, then Xtina can do what she wants.

      • pat May 3, 2018

        u betta!!

      • DanYiel Iman May 3, 2018

        Luckily Beyoncé isn’t worried about what other artists are doing

  12. DanYiel Iman May 3, 2018

    I actually like it, it’s different from most of her earlier tracks!!

  14. Liam May 3, 2018

  15. DC3 FOREVER May 3, 2018

    I LOVE IT! I love how gratuitous this video is! And I hope this no makeup thing she has going on stays! She looks and sounds great!

    Good job!

  16. Dee May 3, 2018

    Songs not bad but the hell is that Kylie Cyrus video all about? All that tongue action was gross. Nope it girl

  17. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 3, 2018

    She sounds like she trying to fit in with the SZA’s, H.E.R’s and Kehlanis of today. This song is so basic and generic, it’s been done before. She failed with this one, this is worse than your body and on top of that she’s not singing, she’s talking. Bad first single choice especially for a “comeback”

    • Faf May 3, 2018

      They don’t make generic music so

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 3, 2018

        Faf Stan’s for nicki Minaj yet tries to decipher what’s generic or not?!? Oh the irony and self written jokes lmfaoooo. FYI I like SZA and her and kehlani. But all generic and blend together with little to no distinction or major diderentiation to tone, cadance and content.

    • Jasmine May 3, 2018

      Shut up Suicide TRASH Blond. Stop using my name and stop impersonating me b|tch. I am the only Jasmine on this site that was born a woman you ugly queen…

  18. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 3, 2018

    You came back to fit in and dumb down your singing? People already doubted your vocals for oversinging and being flat and sharp but now you just said “f**k it I’m not going to sing at all”?. You will appeal to those who are fans of basic music but to fans who r real Christina fans and fans of Christina the singer, musician and person who’s musical, this is a turnoff and a dumb down from anything you’ve ever done

  19. Gurlbye May 3, 2018

    WTF is this trash? Sad to see Xtina playing catch up to these other new ans more effortlessly cool girls on the block. This was an experiment that didn’t pay off at all.
    She better come with that fire next single, pronto!


    The last half of this okay but only because StrainTina HAGorrilla is barely in the last half. Overall it’s GARBAGE and even Rihanna could make this a hit. ANOTHER FLOP PENDING…

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 3, 2018

      It’s sad that she would even think of putting something as vocally basic that Rihanna’s vocally basic self could sing, as her comeback single. That’s crazy. She missed tha ball

    NOT even Rihanna could make this a hit. Xtinas voice doesn’t suit urban, never did never will. ITS GARBAGE to go along with the WHITE TRASH

    • Casual May 3, 2018

      Where have you been? I used to find your posts funny.

  22. BeyJayBlu May 3, 2018

    a mess!

  23. Aj May 3, 2018

    Its more like a teaser than a lead single. It’s a bit all over the place but the new direction, concept etc sounds good!

  24. Whut? May 3, 2018

    I was waiting for Xtina powerhouse vocals for her return. What is this?!

  25. Bad_B May 3, 2018

    Giving me Justin Timberlake Filthy teas…these ‘established’ acts need to stick to good melodies and nice build up pop anthems. This rnb trap business is better left for the newbies coz they just do it better and its more believable. A good example is P!nk. Shes consistent musically and stays relavant coz she delivers to her core fanbase

  26. Casual May 3, 2018

    I’m surprised to find myself liking this, but it’s kind of wrong for her fan base. Her standing at radio is shaky as it is. I am trying to imagine where she will be able to get this played on radio, and I do not see a groundswell of streaming support to gain momentum. Overall not bad, but it’s going to take more to get this album off right.

  27. KD May 3, 2018

    I don’t like this song at all. I remember feeling the exact same way when Beyonce released Run The Word (Girls). I’m really hoping a heart wrenching ballad, or a kick ass rock-ish anthem similar to Fighter are next on the line-up, this is just noise.

  28. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. May 3, 2018

    This sounds like a Beyonce or Rihanna song. I don’t like it.

  29. Sza May 3, 2018

    Issa bop!! Yasssss xtina!!!

  30. JOHNVIDAL May 3, 2018

    The video is Ugh material. I suppose this is not the single.

  31. RoyalKev May 3, 2018

    I’m not obsessed, but I am intrigued! I’d like to see what this album sounds like!

  32. Fancy BISH May 3, 2018

    I like this…ok Miss Xtina ??

  33. ann May 3, 2018

    She still hasnt found her sound…this song and the one with Kanye arent all that great imo

  34. #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY/STREAM “JOYRIDE” EVERYWHERE NOW) May 3, 2018

    Im not a fan of slime/milk rolling down a women’s face. Disgusting and tasteless im here for the other tactics though.

  35. eric May 3, 2018

    A hyper-sexual video for a messy song. Someone let me know when Christina is ready to be Christina again, cause this ain’t it.

  36. Jamie May 3, 2018

    Not at all. Honestly!

  37. Latinissima May 4, 2018

    OMG!.. VERY RISKY first single. It’s a grower but not much a radio friendly song. And the video has no salvation… Miley did it first with “Dooo It!” and without the need of lip injections taking the 80% of visual prominence. This is everything but “Stripped” alike. I deeply miss the Stripped/Back to Basics/Bionic sounds, her best to date.
