Artist of the Week: Christina Aguilera

The pop diva is currently gearing up for the release of her highly-anticipated album 'Liberation', which is due out on June 15.

AceShowbiz - Even though she went on a hiatus from the music industry for more than two years, Christina Aguilera proves to the world that she's still one of the powerhouse singers in the industry. Widely known for her powerful and raw vocals, the singer is currently gearing up for the release of her highly-anticipated album "Liberation", her first effort in six years.

Tina released two official singles and two promotional songs ahead of the release of the set. The first single, "Accelerated", was released on May 3, followed by "Twice" on May 11. For the second official single off the set, Tina recruited Demi Lovato to record feminist anthem "Fall in Line". The song garnered praises from fans and music critics as it topped Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and peaked at No. 17 on Billboard's Digital Singles chart.

The pair debuted live performance of the collaboration at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, receiving standing ovation from the audience due to their powerful harmony. Talking about "Fall in Line" in an interview, Tina noted that it was "the song that needed to be heard," adding, "Because of what I witnessed when I've always growing up I always felt really driven to have a voice that my mom kind of never had in my childhood."

The second promotional song off the effort, "Like I Do", was released on June 8, just days before the album's release. Tina enlisted rapper GoldLink for the sultry track, which found her singing about how her and her younger lover should "Marvin Gaye and get it on."

A dominant live performer, Tina is set to embark on a North America tour in support of "Liberation", marking her first tour in ten years. She will kick off the tour on September 25 in Hollywood and wrap it up on November 12 in St. Petersburg. Big Boi has been announced as the special guest for the tour.
