Christina Aguilera: Lotus
As far as Grammy upsets go, Christina Aguilera might take the crown for her 2000 win for Best New Artist over rival and fellow ex-Mouseketeer Britney Spears. Fast-forward 15 years and she’s back at the Grammys, this time nominated for the smash hit “Say Something” with duo A Great Big World. She harnesses those award-winning vocals on Lotus, a highly personal album that Aguilera describes as a “rebirth” after her divorce.
Ballads and Bangers
In pop diva fashion, Aguilera delivers emotional ballads such as “Sing for Me” and “Blank Page,” cowritten by Sia; the latter showcases Aguilera’s restraint over a bare, piano-driven backdrop. But Lotus offers dance-pop tracks in equal measure, evidenced by songs such as the Euro-style “Let There Be Love” and the album’s first single, “Your Body,” produced by Swedish hitmaker Max Martin.
“Everyone from Lady Gaga to Marina & The Diamonds has raved about “Your Body,” and it’s hard to disagree. The Max Martin/Shellback-produced anthem is an adrenalin-charged shot of dance-pop…” – Idolator
“Uptempo thumper ‘Army of Me’ shares emotional territory with the Björk song of the same name and Aguilera’s old hit, ‘Fighter.’ Aguilera may be in pieces but all those bits have Uzis.” – Guardian
