CHRISTINA AGUILERA

Lib­er­a­tion

WHO - - The List -

No longer a coach on the US ver­sion of The Voice— hence an ex­pla­na­tion for the ti­tle of this al­bum?—for­mer Mickey Mouser Aguilera has had time and headspace to work on her sixth stu­dio al­bum, her first in six years. Lib­er­a­tion show­cases a few stand-out sin­gles. There is the big vo­called #Metoo duet with Demi Lo­vato, “Fall in Line”, a per­for­mance of which rocked the crowd at the May 21 Billboard Mu­sic Awards. Then there is the catchy up tempo “Ac­cel­er­ate”, bring­ing Aguilera into the hip-hop cred zone with as­sists from Ty Dolla $ign and 2Chainz. And for the real big gun: Kanye West pro­duced “Maria”, which bor­rows from both Michael Jack­son and the Sound of Mu­sic. It’s an eclec­tic but in­ter­est­ing al­bum. (Out Fri., June 15)
