Christina Aguilera Releases 'Liberation' Featuring Demi Lovato, 2 Chainz & More
It's official. It's Christina Aguilera's world, we're all just living in it. Her highly anticipated eighth studio album Liberation is here.
On June 15 the GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter released the full studio album, her first since 2012's Lotus. Aptly titled Liberation, Aguilera sets herself free across the album's 15 tracks.
We already heard "Like I Do" with rapper GoldLink, "Accelerate" featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz and "Fall In Line" with none other than Demi Lovato. Now we also get to sink our teeth into tunes such as "Right Moves" with Keida and Shenseea, "Pipe" featuring rapper XNDA, "Dreamers," "Unless It's With You," "Deserve," and "Twice."

The album features songwriting and production from the likes of Kanye West, Julia Michaels, Justin Tratner, Anderson .Paak, and Che Pope, collaborations that have led Rolling Stone to hail the album, saying Xtina "flexes her diva power" while calling her "the leading voice in the 21st century's own class of pop divas." Was there ever any doubt?
"I'm a performer, that's who I am by nature," Aguilera told Paper about the album. "But I'm at the place, even musically, where it's a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty."
