You might be forgiven for actually forgetting that Christina Aguilera is still a player in the Rihanna/Gaga/Ke$ha-dominated pop game. Hell, even Britney Spears has put out two album since Xtina’s last studio LP, Back To Basics.
That said, Aguilera graces the February cover of Marie Claire. The article mentions that her new album, which is scheduled to be released in March, is titled Bionic.
As for tunes on Christina’s upcoming opus, there’s “Glam,” described by the writer as a “poppy, hip hop-inflected throwback to Madonna’s ‘Vogue’.” There are also three ballads she co-wrote with Australian “You’ve Changed” singer Sia—including one titled “Lullaby”—and the album’s “electronic” title track, “Bionic.” (Here’s hoping some of those collaborations with Goldfrapp actually made the cut!)
So has pop music moved on during the four years Aguilera has remained somewhat quiet, professionally? (And, yes, we’re well aware there was an exclusive-to-Target greatest hits collection out last year!) Either way, if things don’t pan out with Bionic, she’ll also be splashed across the big screen in Burlesque, an upcoming movie musical that features Cher and Stanley Tucci.
