A Great Big World must be super thankful that Christina Aguilera is a fan of So You Think You Can Dance. The “Beautiful” singer fell in love with the track when she saw a beautiful number choreographed by Stacey Tookey on the FOX show. Her team then contacted Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino to re-record the ballad as a duet.
With X-tina on board, “Say Something” has grown tremendously. The track is currently No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold nearly 200,000 copies in its first week. No doubt in part to their lauded live performance on The Voice. With a brand new visual, the track will surely climb higher on the chart. Much like the beautiful single, the video is simple yet powerful.
Once again, Aguilera shows that less is more when it comes to her image. She looks sensational in a basic black slip dress and minimal hair and makeup. Check out the emotional clip below. A Great Big World’s debut album Is There Anybody Out There? is due out January 14.
I first heard “Say Something” when it was featured on this season’s So You Think You Can Dance in a beautiful dance choreographed by Stacey Tookey. Clearly I wasn’t the only one who fell in love with the track. Christina Aguilera also did.
Her team contacted A Great Big World’s manager to propose the idea of re-recording the track but as a duet with her. Given her star power, obviously they agreed. The result is absolutely sublime. Gotta give props to Xtina for not overpowering them with her bombastic vocals. Instead, she complements their vocal stylings and elevates the track.
“[This song] is sort of coming to me at a time when I’m feeling very inspired…it’s so simple and it’s so quiet and still and steady and in a way pleading to hear something, to hear some kind of answer or get an answer in the most humble, unassuming, non-demanding way” – Christina Aguilera
“Say Something” is off A Great Big World’s upcoming album Is There Anybody Out There? On Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, they’ll perform the duet with Aguilera on the show. Definitely give the gorgeous ballad a listen below.
The past couple of days have been a downpour of riches for all you Hunger Gamers. Not only did another poster for Catching Fire debut, but two cuts from the soundtrack made their way online in full.
We’ve already heard a preview of “We Remain” from Christina Aguilera, but now we have the full version. As expected, it’s flawless. Xtina is back in her wheelhouse, belting out a power ballad with her even more powerful vocals. This is the Christina I fell in love with years ago.
The other leaked track from the highly-anticipated soundtrack is from the phenomenal Sia. Lately, the Aussie singer has mostly stayed behind the scenes penning tracks for the likes of Celine Dion, Ne-Yo, Alexis Jordan and numerous others including Aguilera herself. I’m glad she’s returned back to the mic to deliver a wicked track produced by Diplo and featuring The Weeknd.
“Elastic Heart” is an emotional track which complements Sia’s throaty vocals with The Weeknd’s vulnerability. Definitely a keeper. Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterward on which track you think is better. I can’t wait to hear the entire LP. This will definitely give The Great Gatsby a run for its money as best soundtrack of the year.
I thought The Great Gatsby had the best soundtrack of the year honors all locked up, but The Hunger Games: Catching Fire album is shaping up to be a serious contender. We’ve already heard the epic “Atlas” by Coldplay and now we have the full track listing. On paper, the roster is epic.
There are contributions from Sia, Santigold, Ellie Goulding, Mikky Ekko, Imagine Dragons and The Lumineers. New Zealand sensation Lorde is also involved by covering the Tears For Fears classic, “Everybody Wants to Rule The World.” As impressive as that line-up is already, the cherry on top is none other than Christina Aguilera.
The Voice judge lends her vocals on a soaring power ballad titled “We Remain.” Some of Xtina’s best work has appeared in movies including “Reflection” (Mulan), “Lady Marmalade” (Moulin Rouge), “Car Wash” (Shark Tale) and anything from Burlesque. Check out a preview of her new track below and see how it stacks up with the rest of her movie contributions.
Season 5 of The Voice kicks off this Monday and as always, it begins with a group performance from the coaches. In the past, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green tackled hits from Queen, Prince, The Rolling Stones and Green Day. When Shakira and and Usher filled in, they joined Levine and Shelton on “Come Together” and “With A Little Help From My Friends” by The Beatles.
For the original coaches‘ first performance back together they’re rocking it out on the classic Joan Jett & The Blackhearts cover, “I Love Rock ‘N Roll.” For me, Christina steals the show. She looks and sounds friggin’ fantastic. Check out the performance below.
After almost a decade not performing live on television, the “Woman’s World” singer choose the NBC singing competition to debut her comeback single. Cher must’ve really enjoyed her time on the fourth season finale of The Voice. She returns to the show, but this time as one of the mentors during the battle rounds for Season 5. Find out who she’s paired up with below, along with the other three mentors.
“This group of wildly successful musicians will add their distinctive talents to their respective teams” Paul Telegdy, NBC’s late night and alternative programming president said in a statement. “I know Christina, Adam, CeeLo and Blake are very much looking forward to having them come aboard.”
Absolutely ridiculous. Christina Aguilera looks insanely hot on the current issue of Maxim magazine. With a svelte new body, I don’t blame her for showing off all her hard work at the gym. It’s sexy without being too trashy like her previous editorials with the publication. Remember her slut-tastic one during her “Dirty” era?
In addition to posing for photographer Mark Liddell, the 32-year-old singer opens up about what she finds sexy in guys. Speaking of sexy guys, Maxim asks her which of her former Mickey Mouse Club co-stars was cooler, Justin Timberlake or Ryan Gosling? Find out her answer below, along with a few other memorable quotes and more photos from her sizzling photo shoot. Side note: Love the headline, “Hear the Voice, See the Body!” Preach Maxim, preach.
I’m such a down-to-earth girl, I’m comfortable in just a jersey and boy’s underwear. Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing you can do. Sexiness should be effortless.
Simply stunning. Christina Aguilera looks absolutely gorgeous while walking on water in a new promo for The Voice Season 5. As if she already didn’t have a deity-like complex already ;)
The “Genie In A Bottle” singer pops out of nowhere to serenade Adam Levine and Blake Shelton who are on a fishing trip. The two boys lament how much they miss their former partners in crime before belting out Peaches & Herb’s classic love song “Reunited.” Cee-Lo Green also joins in on the fun, accompanied by three mermaids. Check out the extremely campy, yet awesome video below.
