Billboard -- CHRISTINA AGUILERA "Your Body" (4:00) Producers: Max Martin, Shellback Writers: M. Martin, S. Kotecha, Shellback, T. Amber Publishers: various RCA
Although Christina Aguilera released music throughout 2010 (the underperforming Bionic trotted out three singles, and she contributed new songs to the "Burlesque" soundtrack), it's tempting to call "Your Body" her long-awaited comeback. Given that it's her first collaboration with mega-producer Max Martin, it's clear the diva is going for broke. Featuring a chorus that allows Aguilera to unleash her giant pipes, "Your Body" makes it almost easy to look past its wince-worthy lyrics about anonymous sex ("So don't even tell me your name/All I need to know is whose place," goes one couplet). Indeed, the song was shipped to radio with a kid-friendly chorus, "All I wanna do is love your body," while an explicit version swaps out "love" for something far more transactional. With new album Lotus arriving Nov. 13, Aguilera, love her or hate her, has earned the right to belt "I think you already know my name" on the song's bridge.-AH
