Gonna' stop with all the caps for the song titles starting from this review: Your Body by Christina Aguilera.
Music video for your viewing pleasure can be seen here.
Lotus. What is that? We all know what that is. But what we should know, is that Lotus is Christina Aguilera's seventh studio album. More than that, it paid tribute to a decade at the top of the music industry. Christina Aguilera has been more than just our artist, giving us hit, after hit after hit.
Aguilera, also a music judge alongside Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on The Voice, it clearly showed she never left her music path despite all she's done. Though it is clear that Bionic, her previous studio album, which was still a commercial success despite her canceled tour and disappointment overall, still reminded us of her singing prowess. As always, Xtina's voice is remnant to her past songs and is still as devastating and loud as ever.
Your Body marks her comeback, and with that a volatile message to the underlying music industry that they still have a vocal superpower in their ranks. However, does it really show she still have what it takes? Let's go on with the song.
Your Body starts off pretty slow, but when Christina kicks in with her vocals, it starts drumming your ears. The chorus, which was the most powerful part of the song, totally ripped what Christina could do into fractions. It was one of the most authentic and clear chorus she has ever done, and was definitely very different from her past hits. One thing is for sure, her vocals tore the song apart, as always. With that, it seriously deterred from her past singles and songs on Bionic, and this was just meant for something bigger.
Anybody else hyped up for Lotus? I sure am. Christina Aguilera pulls it off once again, but does she does so overall? Let's find out.
ORIGINALITY: 8/10 - An 8. You don't get songs like these that just chokes your ears.
SOUND: 8/10 - Aguilera's vocals are on fire, while otherwise a contemplating electronic background would be rather disturbing.
LYRICS: 8/10 - Doesn't dither, nope. Xtina's writing still means she's got it. However, some parts lacked flair while others were commendable.
OVERALL: 24/30 - The song just enough makes it, and I can somehow sense Your Body go into top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, though I might be wrong.
However, Your Body goes into My Playlist, which makes sure that I'll be playing it for days.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
