Jagger-meister Christina Aguilera got in touch with her Latin roots on 2000′s Spanish language album Mi Reflejo, and now the chanteuse, who is of Ecuadorian heritage, is singing en espanol once more. Her new song, “La Casa” (aka “The Home”), comes from the soundtrack for the upcoming Will Ferrell movie La Casa de Mi Padre, and the bilingual Xtina practically drowns us the melodrama (even more than usual!) yet still manages to maintain control over her incredible vocals. Be wowed below.
Christina Aguilera — “La Casa”
The song, with horns blaring and Xtina emoting the whole way through, is a sexy yet melancholy mariachi melody. It’s full of passion, feeling, and Aguilera’s flawless voice, something her last LP Bionic mostly lacked.
As for the song’s lyrics, well, we admit we aren’t fluent in Spanish, but Will Ferrell (who, evidently, is fluent) might be able to tell us what Xtina is singing about. Watch the trailer for La Casa de Mi Padre below.
