AceShowbiz - Christina Aguilera is finally back to the music industry. Recruiting Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz, the pop superstar premiered new single called "Accelerate" as well as its music video on Thursday, May 3. The new single marks her first song in six years.
Directed by Zoey Grossman, the partial black-and-white visuals alternates between scenes of the songstress of lapping up milk and sultry close-ups of her face covered in honey-like substance as she belts out the song.
"Accelerate, c'mon babe, pick up your speed/ Stamina, fill me up that's what I need," she sings, before Ty chimes in with his own verse, "Another shot, you comin' home with me/ F**k all these drugs, f**k all these clubs/ What's wrong with me?"
"Accelerate" is the first single off her upcoming album "Liberation". The song was produced by Kanye West, who has been receiving backlash due to his controversial remarks. In an interview with Billboard, Christina shared that the song was made when the rapper was working on "The Life of Pablo".
"I've always been a huge fan of Kanye," she said of the "Famous" rapper. "Outside of, you know, his controversial aspects, I just think he's a great artist and musicmaker and beatmaker. The artist that he chooses to pluck from different walks of life are so interesting."
"Liberation" is expected to be released on June 15. Among the songs on the 15-track effort is a collaboration with Demi Lovato on track "Fall in Line". During the interview, the blonde beauty also revealed that the album was influenced by hip-hop and R&B.
"To me, there's nothing like an amazing hip-hop beat," she noted. "At the end of the day, I am a soul singer. When you strip back the words 'pop star' and the many things that I've done, singing soulfully is where my core, my root and my heart really is. And as you can see, it's what I'm inspired by."
