When Cee Lo Green mentioned to Jimmy Fallon that he and his The Voice colleague Christina Aguilera recorded a song together, we knew the Internet would come to the rescue way before either Xtina or NBC could have a chance to release it. And it did! (Thanks, Internet, we owe you a coke.) The surfaced version of the diva and the R&B star’s collab, “Nasty”, may be super low quality, but that won’t stop you (or us) from grooving to it for the next hour or so. Listen below. UPDATE: We’ve got the high-quality recording now.
Christina Aguilera feat. Cee Lo Green – “Nasty”
Christina takes the lead on this bombastic song, and we can practically hear Cee Lo grinning ear to ear while chiming in with, “Hey baby, wanna see ya get nasty, wanna see ya show your ass, babe!”
It’s bouncy fun, super catchy (especially Xtina’s “hey!” that keeps popping up), and for a song called “Nasty”, includes no crude-for-the-sake-of-crudeness TMI bon mots found on Bionic.
Sure, this tune was a leftover track intended for the Burlesque soundtrack, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve to be heard. Xtina should save this one for her next album, hopefully out sooner than later.
Blake Shelton and Adam Levine must be feeling left out right about now. Maybe Blake can guest on a Maroon 5 track and make it even stevens?
