Christina Aguilera Dishes on Her New Album, 'Lotus': 'It's My Labor of Love' (VIDEO)
Christina Aguilera’s new album Lotus is her “labor of love.”
“I give my heart and my soul into every record that I do,” Aguilera told reporters after Tuesday's The Voice. “I’m very detail oriented. I’m quite the perfectionist and hard on myself, so that I can make the best product and expression to my fans to help motivate them to be the unbreakable flowers themselves which is what Lotus stands for and represents.”
The superstar explained that her seventh studio album is “a celebration record.”
She continued, “Lotus represents throughout the toughest of weather conditions and being in this business is going to come with a lot of tough weather conditions.”
This season on The Voice, there has been more than one contestant who has taken on the judges' golden pipes performing “Ain’t No Other Man,” “Fighter” and “Lady Marmalade.” Aguilera, 31, revealed if there was a song she’d like a contestant to cover off her new album, it would definitely be “Sing For Me.”
“'Sing For Me’ is a song I wrote specifically about before I had success in my life, sitting on my bed being lonely,” she said. “All I had was those three little notes or melodies to cling on to and to be able to express myself and release myself from a chaotic day or whatnot.”
Lyrics for “Sing To Me” as well as the other songs on Aguilera’s new album available on Direct Lyrics.
Aguilera’s Lotus is available in stores and on iTunes now.
