Christina Aguilera Welcomes Us Into Her “Haunted Heart”
September is creeping to a close. That means spooky season is right around the corner. And we can count on Christina Aguilera to get us in the mood with her new song “Haunted Heart.” Out today (September 27), it is Legend X’s contribution to the soundtrack for The Addams Family. And it’s a seriously catchy bop. On it, she toys with a lover over a supersized, jazzy instrumental. “There’s no ground when you fall for me. You’ll be falling for miles,” she warns. “I’m bewitched by your misery. But I love it when you smile.”
That leads into the chorus. “My heart is a haunted house. Once you’re in, you ain’t getting out,” she warns. “It’s the trap you’ve been waiting for. Ain’t no windows, ain’t no doors. No escaping the way you feel.” Christina was not playing games with the vocals on this one. She is seriously coming for blood and taking no prisoners. And the end result is a wildly good time that is vaguely serving Back To Basics vibes. At least in my opinion. And here’s the best part. It’s abundantly clear that she had a great time working on the track.
“I’m so excited to be a part of this iconic favorite creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky fam,” she gushed on Instagram earlier this week. Check out the lyric video which features footage of Xtina in the recording studio below.
