Christina Aguilera Makes Full-Throttle Comeback With 'Accelerate'

Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera has marked her long-awaited return to music by dropping her first single in five years - Accelerate. It will mark her first record in almost six years. The video showcases Aguilera in all her glory showering in a honey-like substance with lots of glitter licking.

Fans were excited with Aguilera's musical comeback, and both her nickname Xtina and Accelerate quickly became trending topics on Twitter as they shared their joy. "I didn't get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules] ..."

"I've always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage", she said. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. "Anything like that to get me out of that zone, that TV mode", she said. "I'm looking forward to getting back out and actually showing my kids what Mommy really does!"

The Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz-assisted track is the first preview of Aguilera's upcoming sixth studio album Liberation, which will be out June 15 via RCA Records.

Of the album, Aguilera told USA music site Billboard: "To me, there's nothing like an incredible hip-hop beat".

I know you've been waiting. "And as you can see, it's what I'm inspired by".
