This week I’ll be posting three brand-spanking-new sets of the Diva Series before giving that edition a rest for a couple of months.
To kick things off, the one and only Christina Aguilera is being re-inducted to the Diva Hall of Fame and by all accounts, she fits the true definition LOL. The attitude, the voice, the looks were all on full display during her three-year run as a coach on The Voice. You can credit that stent on the show for putting her back into the spotlight (something she desperately needed)
Since the release of Bionic and it’s subsequent pan by critics (whether justified or not …me think not) and a star turn in the mega-flop Burlesque (alongside three-time Diva Hall of Fame inductee Cher), her star power started to rapidly fade. Coupling that with some seriously added poundage, led folks to believe she just wasn’t all that into it anymore, or worse experiencing serious depression.
Her follow-up album Lotus didn’t fare much better and despite a loyal following, people began to scratch their heads and wonder what the hell was going on? Fortunately, high-profile collaborations with Maroon 5 and Pitbull have kept her on the charts not to mention a return to The Voice this fall should maintain that momentum.
Far be it for me to make any suggestions towards her music career but I’m gonna anyway. If she wants to be relevant, she will have to adapt to the current scene at radio. I’d suggest working with William Orbit, Benny Benassi or Calvin Harris (actually all of them) on her next project. She can still be Christina but these producers know their shit and could easily shape a new sound and image for Miss X. Take it for what it’s worth, but putting out another dated formulaic album will be the final nail in her coffin.
WOW! I didn’t mean for this induction to come off so harsh. So that being said, Party Favorz honors the woman, the voice, the TRUE DIVA and all that she has contributed to our lives. Without further ado, please welcome Xtina a.k.a. Christina Aguilera! XOXOXO
