Christina Aguilera: 12 Years Later
Christina Aguilera: Genie In a Bottle (1999) vs. Not myself Tonight (2010)
Genie in A bottle: "It became a smash hit overnight, becoming one of Aguilera's most successful singles worldwide. The track went #1 on Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks, having had the longest stay at number one for the entire year. The track established Aguilera's place in pop culture as a pop phenomenon, going platinum within a few months of release. The single earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2000 and helped her win theBest New Artist Grammy that same year. Many consider this her signature song (along with "Beautiful")."
Not Myself Tonight: "The tribal-beat infused track is her sexiest record we’ve heard since 2002’s “Dirrty" ... it is a high-octane anthem that is sure to get tons of requests at nightclubs all over. While she gets it going with a sultry whisper asking her fans, “Do you wanna get crazy? ‘Cause I don’t give a f**k".Michael Menachem from Billboard gave the single a positive review: "Aguilera channels a more Euro-glamorous version of her former dirrty alter-ego Xtina on Tonight, dashing lyrics about self-reinvention with breathy chants and naughty expletives. [...] [The] dripping synths, pulsing basslines and tribal house drums [...] sound appealingly unfinished. Paired with Aguilera's unmatched vocal range, Tonight proves that the current dance-pop craze would be incomplete without her."
