First Impressions: Christina Aguilera Is 'Not Herself' On Dance Floor Stomper

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Christina Aguilera is trying on a new pair of stilettos and I'm quite glad, cause I have missed her so, and Back to Basics is so last decade! The pop diva has been teasing us (and no that iamwhoiam viral phenom was not a taunt) as all last week she kept dropping "BIG NEWS" (and the Kanye West caps were necessary). The BIG NEWS came in the forms of single cover art for "Not Myself Tonight", lyrics to the song, the cover art for her album Bionic, and then a snippet of the "Tonight" single...wahoo. 

Now finally Christina has the BIG NEWS I was waiting for and it's the audio to "Not Myself Tonight" that's more like it! The Polow Da Don produced track is a ram-bam dance explosion, with squeaky synths and punchy percussive rhythms. At face value, it's got "hit" smeared all over it because it's that electro-pop sound that dominates Top 40 airwaves nowadays, it's infectious and Christina's vocals just slide over this like a more funkier "Dirrty". Some will no doubt compare this to Lady GaGa (since they are sooo alike *rolls eyes*) for argument sake, yet, in a way this is a nicely polished return for Christina. Though I was hoping for something a little more left field, in all, it's truly not what I was expecting and that's the fun of it.  

Bionic will be in stores June 8th, so mark your calenders.

Not Myself Tonight
