Its been six years since Christina Aguilera released her seventh studio album Lotus and her fans have been patiently waiting for her next project. Now, we officially have a new album teased and a new song released.


Xtina dropped "Accelerate" with an accompanying video. The song is more hip-hop influenced than her previous work and its clear the singer is getting grittier for her new era.

When you strip back the words pop star and the many things that Ive done, singing soulfully is where my core, my root and my heart really is. And as you can see, its what Im inspired by.

The song has features from Ty Dolla Sign and 2 Chainz and a masterful production from Mike Dean, Che Pope, and the one-and-only Kanye West who is making waves for his opinions more than his beats right now.


In the video Xtina is more stripped down. She's not wearing as much makeup as she usually does and the Zoey Grossman-directed video is very edgy and artistic.


The album will be titled Liberation and it's due out on June 15th.
