Much like that other eardrum shattering diva, Xtina Aguilera is another chanteuse you either hate to love, love to hate or if you’re like Philly Mixtape, you simply live for. Of course, those who don’t know her extensive catalog at least know her roaring hits, “Genie in a Bottle,” “What A Girl Wants,” and “Lady Marmalade,” and you’ve even most likely worked it out at the gym to her blazing bangers, “Fighter” and “Dirrty” But, indeed for us die hard fans, we’ve lived out our life to Stripped, know every Sia-penned ballad–even the ones on Bionic and Lotus–and we simply live that Xtina music life to the fullest.
Today, you’re about to get served up with some personal Christina favorites, whether they almost hit the chart mark, got overlooked on an album, or just need some more of that good old fashioned diva music love, these next 15 Xtina tracks are perfect for whatever playlist your cooking up for Philly pride weekend and beyond.
The Mulan number that really started it all….now playing in supermarkets everywhere.
“Nobody Wants to Be Lonely”
Pre-Xtina with a pre-out-of-the-closet Ricky Martin equals pure underplayed pop bliss.
“Can’t Hold Us Down”
Her delightfully ratchet gurl-power anthem with Lil’ Kim that was an “almost there, but not quite” top 10 hit that no one really speaks of anymore.
The title pretty much speaks for itself.
“Get Mine, Get Yours”
The best song about NSA-action ever recorded.
It’s Christina and Missy. Enough said.
This forgot about Diddy laced ditty is essential for all Xtina playlists and beyond.
“Slow Down Baby”
This saucy Back to Basics number is absolute perfection….that should’ve been a bigger hit.
“Back in the Day”
A jazzy ode to a buffet of dearly departed music legends…why would you not want to play it everyday?
“Not Myself Tonight”
“Woohoo” w/Nicki Minaj
You don’t even need a plate….just your headphones.
While the lyrics are a little over the top (“take ya supersonic…”), it’s one of her most wonderfully weird music creations…
If only this version would’ve made the video….
“Let There Be Love”
Next week-500 Reasons Why this delightful romp should’ve been a bigger hit. Not to mention, it’s an Xtina flavored pride anthem at its very best.
