Christina Aguilera's 40 Best Songs
From 'Candyman' to 'Beautiful,' we count down Christina Aguilera's 40 best songs.

Christina Aguilera is one of the most versatile artists of her generation, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that she has a knack for collaborations. Whether Legend X is singing the hook on a rap song or experimenting with country, the 40-year-old elevates any and all material. That makes ranking her best collaborations a tricky proposition. How do you pit “Lady Marmalade” (AKA the most iconic all-female collaboration of the ’00s) against a song like “Moves Like Jagger” that still gets blasted before every sporting event?

In the end it comes down to personal taste. I’ve included a little bit of everything on my list. There’s Christina’s foray into electro-pop on Pitbull’s “Feel This Moment,” her hugely underrated collaboration with T.I. (2010’s “Castle Walls”) and both of songs with A Great Big World. Other classics in the mix include Nelly’s “Tilt Ya Head Back,” Lady Gaga’s “Do What U Want” and Christina’s epic duet with Ricky Martin, “Nobody Wants To Be Lonely.” Dive into my countdown of the superstar’s 15 best collaborations below.
