Christina's back and this is just a ceremonious shout-out to her fans.
Music video for Let There Be Love.
So Xtina's back with her new single (not sure, an accompanying music video was made), but still, it's from her prominent 7th studio album, Lotus, which fans around the world have come to conclusion that it's pretty much amazing and well, showing off what Christina does best. I wouldn't say Bionic was my favourite, but Lotus kind of tops that any other side of the weighing scale.
If it is a single, then Let There Be Love would be Aguilera's 3rd single off of Lotus, with Your Body and Just A Fool featuring Blake Shelton, with the latter feature Aguilera's partner on The Voice. If it goes this way, then Your Body would be your opening champagne, the hour that everyone starts dancing to. Just A Fool makes you start wondering where your partner went, and how miserable it is. Let There Be Love then makes you re-encounter these dreams again, and it is a basic reflection to basically the ones you love. Until now my favourite single so far though would have to be Just A Fool, easily hitting a remarkable high with Blake performing one of his best vocals to date.
Is that to say this single is far from average or even worse compared to the first two? Not at all. There's the characteristics of a Christina song written all over it. From the beast vocals to even the pleasing falsettos, Christina just offers another way to put her vocals to test. She's done it for over a decade, and now it's soothingly easy to do it all over again, the pressure now slightly tipping off. It is a potential party anthem, but also an anthem for those who need to start over again, as the song also offers the piece of vibe that sticks with your throughout and plays in your mind for another few minutes. Let There Be Love had the right message, and seems more radio-friendly and a little complex to judge it as mainstream, though which Christina single isn't mainstream?
Let there be let there be love
Originality: 8/10 - Aguilera's Lotus hardly is even upsetting to say the least. The creativity and innovation is there, and she shines definitely.
Sound: 8/10 - What is there to complain or even highlight? Aguilera's vocals are humongous.
Lyrics: 7/10 - The song had me a little confused about what it was trying to be, but it was the chorus that mattered most anyway.
Overall: 23/30 - Let There Be Love is a token to the Christina's fans, and this song will be truly related to them, all ways of how it's going to be heard. I'll be playing it for days, for sure.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
