Christina Aguilera is back.
Today, May 2nd, the Grammy award winning singer announced details of her new album ‘Liberation’ with the release of her latest single, ‘Accelerate’.
Produced by Kanye West, Che Pope and Mike Deanand, the track features Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz.
Reminiscent of the sound by made popular by West on his 2013 album ‘Yeezus’, ‘Accelerate’ is a stripped down, drum heavy, hip-hop bop from start to finish.
“C’mon babe, pick up the speed. Stamina, fill me up, that’s what I need.”
Often referred to as being the powerhouse vocalist of her generation, Christina delivers a more restrained, laid back vocal style on the song, singing the tracks sexy lyrics with confidence and ease.
The singles accompanying highly stylised, moody music video, directed by Zoey Grossman, shows off Aguilera in minimal makeup and slicked-back platinum hair.
The suggestive clip features Christina licking milk from a cup and rubbing a gel over her naked body, along with periodic close-ups of her glitter-covered lips.
