    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    I still think it has a chance in the states because JAF has crossover appeal.
    radio is like key to a song being a hit. Just need radio to start spinning this song.

    the horrible thing about radio is taht they're always scared to play a song unless its a hit already. which is stupid imo

    whichever the song from Lotus as a single
    as long radio not supporting n playing it.... it's all the same
    Let There Be Love, Army of Me, etc etc

    she needs to do Radio Tour interview maybe?

    I put my hope high for this People's Choice Awards Performance!!!

    Well nothing has happened with Just A Fool despite it being a great song. It was released more than a month ago and it still going the same place than the rest of the album, nowhere. Xtina's not even trying though (as usual), no video for the song yet? C'mon.

    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    you're not supposed to release a music video this soon. you're supposed to release it to give sales an extra oomph later in the game. RCA know this. There is no use in releasing it YET.

    yes its been a month but you cant compare a slow ish Xtina song with like a Katy or Kesha song which does well real soon and then peaks early. Just look at Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire." That was released several months ago and it just now starting to get massive radio airplay. Just gotta have patience. and in the meantime, don't let up on radio requests and by radio requests, I mean texting and calling (which is harder to ignore than online requests...they know that online requests might be sent by stans even if they're like 4544645 miles away from the actual radio station)

    Longevity is key. Just a Fool has been building slowly but surely. It just hit 5 Million audience impressions today so to say nothing has happened is not true. For as long as it has been, Just a Fool has only had 3 negative radio updates out of an entire month of radio updates. and one of them was on Christmas Day (the so called "XMas Freeze" on radio) and the other was like on New Years Day (year end countdowns take away from radio spins)

    I don't think moving slow is a good strategy on today's music market.

    Its not really a strategy...its just how radio works sometimes with songs that arent considered necessarily radio friendly. However moving slow is fine...tons of songs move slow in the beginning. Rolling in the Deep, Moves Like Jagger, Girl on Fire, Home, etc.

    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    While it's sad that her career has reached a low point (which doesn't mean that it's over - La Carey came back from that Glitter disaster and Whitney Houston exploded back into the mainstream thanks to 'The Bodyguard', even though everyone thought that she was forgotten), it's also true that she only has herself to blame.

    First of all, she seems to think that her voice is the best and most unique of her generation, which is far from true. She has an extremely limited belting range and horrible technique, which has made her live singing an unbearable collection of choked bellows and agonized yelps. Instead of going about the world behaving as if she were above hard work, she should dedicate a couple of years to studying and properly developing and her instrument, and then come back being able to properly sing in the lower and mid-upper ranges, which she definitely cannot (and could never) do.

    Second, her material has been sub-standard for years. 'Back to Basics' was extremely uneven, 'Bionic' was a mess and 'Lotus' has dated and mostly unmemorable material. Maybe working with actually talented songwriters and producers would improve her chances of selling records and filling venues again, because she would actually be delivering good quality material. Maybe running back to Linda Perry is in order for her. As things stand right now, she will be a nostalgia act before she reaches the age of 35.

    I really like her tone, but she appears to be lost and needs to stop thinking that everything she does is amazing for the sole fact of being sung by her. Also, she needs to start promoting the very few decent songs she's released so far... However, I have noticed that people seem to be a bit tired of her, which is surprising, since she only releases an album every three or four years, in average. Anyway, good luck to her! She definitely needs it.

    You just said B2B and Bionic were sub standard and then you say she should go back to Linda Perry?
    um that seems contradictory
    and maybe working with actually talented songwriters? er how bout Sia? oh wait she already has done that twice.

    I'm all for differing opinions but I kind of wonder how many of the people who go on and on about her vocal technique are actually even qualified to give their two cents about the subject.

    You lost me at that first sentence. Lotus might be selling low but this is in no shape of form a low point of her career. She got paid almost 30 million to be sitting in a chair for 2 seasons...Plus her perfumes sell really good. I wouldn't call it a low point, I just think she's focusing more on other activities besides music.

    She had the flu and all things considered it was a very nice performance. 10x than the AMA hot mess. Not liking the hair that much but I love this song so much. I did feel that in the beginning she was out of time with the piano for a bit.

    Some fans tend to say (with no proof whatsoever) that she's sick when they feel she didn't live up to their standards. I don't think she was sick and I think she sounded amazing.

    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    I thought it was a lil shaky at first but when she got into it, it improved a lot
    there was a video taken by an audience member...for some reason, it sounded a lot better than the televised version. I'll post it if I find it again

    but she was def sick at the AMA's. You can tell by how nasally and stuffy her talking voice was when she talked on the Voice at that time (live shows)
    she prolly wasnt sick at PCA's...though maybe she has something going on. It does sound a lot different from how it sounded during Bionic promo. Her voice sounded fine for the You Lost Me performance at American Idol for example. Which is not long ago. like at all tbh

    The red carpet correspondents were saying (before the show) that she was a little under the weather but was going to perform anyways.

    Just A Fool is hovering outside the top 100 of USA itunes despite the fact that its stalling on radio. Its outselling songs that have larger audience impressions. There is definitely hope for JAF. just dont give up and keep requesting!

    But we have been going in hard on radio. For a long time for quite a few singles.

    Her last really successful solo single was ANOM... breaking the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and making an impact for a while.

    I'm just starting to wonder if Christina's days on the radio are limited. What artist that broke into the scene in the 1990's is seeing their singles do incredibly well on radio today? I'm genuinely curious. Are there any? I'm not trying to sound stupid or naive.

    It certainly doesn't mean that Christina can't continue to make music. She'll be making music forever and I'll be enjoying her voice forever.

    I'm just over her needing to be on the radio. I don't even ever listen to the radio.

    would suit and tie have done as well if radio give it limited play? of course not.
    this radio politics shit is bullshit.

    also when i say we need to go in hard, i mean we need to be persistently going hard. some stans call it quits really easily when it comes to requesting.

    btw Feel this Moment and Just a Fool are rising on itunes. the former rose like over 40 spots in the past two days.
    Just a Fool is at 105...was 116 few days ago. Would be in top 100 already except they have two versions of the song. one at 105 one at 166. this is all with like no promotion.
    and yet radio chose to play keshas new single despite it flopping on itunes prior to radio. its like radio is shoving what they want us to buy and hear down our throats.

    also some people on afterld are doing a download day tmmr for just a fool.

    Um no. When she puts out the right thing she gets the airplay in no time.

    Her problem with Lotus is she put out a terrible first song and isn't properly promoting the other songs. It's almost as if she doesn't care, so that public doesn't either.

    go on any forum that tracks radio airplay.

    Just because you thought Your Body was a "terrible first song" doesnt mean anything. Her album may have gotten mixed reviews but Your Body didnt. Reviews for Your Body were overwhelmingly positive.

    artists that do far less promotion and dont give the impression that they care receive more radio airplay than her.
    the hell has Justin Timberlake actually done to promote Suit and Tie? The fuck has Britney done?
    and what does that even mean, the "right thing"? I fail to believe that Not Myself Tonight, Woohoo, You Lost Me, Your Body, and Just a Fool all happen to fall under the "wrong" thing.
    when has radio ever immediately jumped on board the second Christina released a song?

    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    Timberlake did not break out into the solo scene until late 2002.

    And Britney is featuring on will.i.am's song, much like Christina was featuring on Maroon 5's song.

    Although, Britney did do well with her last album. She got at least one number one song on the Hot 100, right? Maybe two. Not sure.

    Those are decent examples though. I guess my next question would be who on radio has vocals like Christina and gets massive airplay?

    Maybe radio and most listeners just don't dig Christina's amazing powerhouse vocals anymore? I just don't know. I wish I knew why she can't get radio play. It really is confusing.

    Buuut, you don't know that for sure. You really don't. And it's only your opinion that Your Body is a terrible song. Lots of songs don't get radio play. Are they all terrible? I think the stuff that radio doesn't play is a lot better than what they do play.

    Radio is mostly shit.

    I wasn't the only one, because the song didn't chart strongly.

    And radio has always supported Christina when she's put out the right things. Christina was the #2 singles selling artist of 2000s, trailing only Madonna. You don't sell singles well if radio doesn't play them. Radio does play them.

    Truth is nobody really cares about Lotus except Christina's core fans. Get over it and yourself.

    Justin Timberlake got personal with his fans before releasing Suit & Tie with some Youtube promo. His website also started a single release countdown. Scream & Shout's video was premiered on The X Factor so it got a strong initial audience viewing.

    er I never said you were the only one but you are obviously in the minority when it comes to people who have actually heard the song
    the reason it didnt chart well was because of radio not your PERSONAL opinion on whether or not the song was good. what it needed was exposure via radio. plenty of arguably horrible songs can do well if radio rams it down your throat hard enough.
    so dont give me that shit about the "right thing" unless you can give me a concrete reason why Your Body is the wrong thing while Suit and Tie and the generic as shit Scream and Shout which fucking recycles the Britney, bitch catchphrase is the "right thing"

    and yes she was the #2 singles selling artist of the 2000's but the reality is that radio has been shady ever since Bionic. Radio now is not exactly the same as radio ten years ago, now is it? Don't even.

    and really? wtf. Justin got "personal" with some Youtube promo? what? a video talking about "I'm Ready"?
    compared the several videos that Christina did on HER personal channel talking about the new album
    and how many people exactly have subscribed to his personal channel? Your point is invalid.

    and yes Britney premiered Scream and Shout on the X Factor but here's the wonderful thing about promo. Its important but without radio, Scream and Shout would never have lasted as long as it did or achieved the peak that it did. It might have had higher sales the week she premiered it but its risen ever since due to RADIO.
    Christina performed Just a Fool TWICE. Once on the Voice (which has higher ratings than X Factor), once on Ellen. Each led to HUGE increases in Itunes sales. But it hasnt had that longevity because RADIO has BARELY played it. Again your point is invalid.
    You honestly just sound like you're making excuses so clearly someone needs to get over something and its not me hunty.

    "It's almost as if she doesn't care, so that public doesn't either."
    I highly doubt the general public thinks about pop artists like, "oh she doesnt seem like she cares, I wont buy her shit" The general public doesnt know if it seems like she cares or not, only her core fans do.
    If radio plays a song enough, people will hear it, if they like it, they'll buy it. More radio airplay means more chances of this happening. Simple as that.

    Did radio programmers jump onto Catch My Breath the way they did with Scream and Shout? No. Released October and is just NOW starting to get substantial radioplay. That's bullshit.

    Truth is nobody really cares about Lotus except Christina's core fans. Get over it and yourself.

    Justin Timberlake got personal with his fans before releasing Suit & Tie with some Youtube promo. His website also started a single release countdown. Scream & Shout's video was premiered on The X Factor so it got a strong initial audience viewing.
    What kind of sick world do you live in that the only singles to be considered any good that Christina puts out are the ones that only chart well?

    I don't need radio to tell me Christina makes good music.

    Christina got very personal before Bionic was released. All new web site with a countdown. Her own channel on I Heart Radio with a strong build up to Not Myself Tonight. Plus performances, interviews, you name it!

    In regards to Lotus... Christina joined Twitter! And she released a bunch of new information via Twitter. It doesn't get much more personal than that with fans and new fans from The Voice.

She will not always be as big as she is now. Although her debut single from her debut album was a hit, 19 did not do really well until 21 came around and people realized she had an album out before that and started buying 19 too.

    Yes, Kelly Clarkson is doing well, not incredibly well, but I guess what I'm trying to point out is Christina's uniqueness.

    She's not Kelly Clarkson. Christina's situation is unique. She doesn't have Kelly's cookie cutter voice.

    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    ^I'm not saying that singles that charted well are good singles. My favorite track by Christina was actually dismal in the US (Dirrty). I still like it and I think it's one of the best things she's put out.

    My problem with Your Body is that it's so effing generic it looks like anything GaGa, Perry, or Rihanna didn't choose to record for their album. And it does no justice to Christina at all.

    I do like Blank Page & Just a Fool and bought those off itunes.

    I don't need radio to tell me what song is good as what isn't, I have my own judgement. In this case, the general public agrees with my judgement that Your Body wasn't a good lead single. There was nothing Christina about it at all.

    Kelly Clarkson's biggest strength comes from her vocal consistency, versatility, and longevity. She started 10 years ago, many of the artists doing well back then (Christina included) are not doing as well now, but Kelly's latest studio album (Stronger) managed to go Platinum, her lowest selling album (My December) also went Platinum, and all her albums are certified Platinum or Multi Platinum in the US.

    Like I said the general public aren't fucking retarded. If a song is good it eventually gets some sort of recognition. This would again explain why, to the above poster, that Catch My Breath is now catching on in airplay. It's uniquely Kelly. It goes back to her Breakaway sound. Nobody else out there would sound good singing it. My point about Your Body is that it's so generic they could have just called it "Anonymous - Your Body". It does Christina NO justice.

    The general public is actually pretty fucking retarded. Like fucking sheep. Kesha's second single flops on itunes. Radio plays it. and like sheep, the public starts to buy it.
    and you're right. if it is good, it get some sort of recognition....which Your Body did.
    for the first half of its debut week, it was in the top ten of itunes. top 20 for the second half I believe.
    sold more copies than NMT yet debuted lower than NMT

    for the majority of its run on US itunes, Your Body was in the lower 20's upper 30's yet on Hot 100 it was around 60. Now to me, that isn't a reflection of a song's quality. That Hot 100 position is more of a reflection radio programmers being shady. IMO radio spins are weighed too heavily in Hot 100 rankings. another example: Gangnam style outsells Maroon 5's One More Night by a bunch yet is blocked from the top spot because RADIO PROGRAMMERS decided not to spin it and not because the general public wouldnt have ate that shit up if they heard it on the radio.

    We will just have to agree to disagree on YB being generic or not. However, YB regardless of whether it was generic could have become a hit if it was played properly.
    I cant imagine anyone going "oh wow this is a catchy song but because it doesnt properly highlight Xtina' vocal prowess I wont buy it" No. just no.

    "Catch My Breath is now catching on in airplay."
    yea and its still bullshit that its getting airplay now several months after release and hence hasnt charted as high while Shitney gets instant airplay and hence higher chart positions

    ^IMO at this point you're like a food critic running around posting what's good and what's not and forcing people into believing something is nice when really they don't like it, lol. You like calamari and other people like chips & dip. Get over it, really.

    Way to insult everyone by saying the general public is fucking retarded. The same public that made Christina a star in the first place. I'm sure they will repent and buy Lotus now.

    Or not.

    Re: The Christina Aguilera Mega-thread

    er someone is missing the point. cuz the point I've been trying to make up to this point is that my personal opinion doesnt matter and neither does yours lol Even if I personally thought Your Body and Just a Fool were shitty songs, my issue is with radio not giving it the chance it deserves, while giving all their airplay time to certain artists who dont seem to care and who sometimes do even less promo than Xtina. Thats shady. So don't give me that stupid oh Xtina seems like so doesnt care enough to promote bullshit hunty
    my whole issue has to do with radio programmers being assholes. You're the one who started giving your personal opinion of how "Your Body" wasnt the "right thing" or whatever when really there is no "right thing" in music

    and oh please. its not like my general public comment is going to be seen by hundreds of people who will now boycott Christina. Whatever.
    If you want to believe that the general public is not so easily manipulated or influenced by radio whatever. But theres pretty obvious connection between increased radio airplay (warranted or not) and increased sales.

    I'll just say this:

    "Your Body" is a shitty, generic, poppy "mess" of a song--but with the proper attention on radio...it could have been a "hit".

    Yes...the general public (radio sheeple) would have eventually gravitated towards it.

    and on my end--I didn't/don't like it and I didn't/don't care. And neither does Christina (or so it seems to me).

    she did Chelsea Lately, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, a bunch of those Extra, Access Hollywood shits, interview with Ryan Secreast (shady piece of shit on radio. maybe cuz xtina fought with his fiancee)
    a twitter q&a, some online streaming interview with the fans, did three The Voice performances, Ellen interview + Performance, AMA's, PCA's.

    most of which (the high profile ones) led to sales increases. BUT WHICH CANNOT BE SUSTAINED WITHOUT RADIO.
    now some of these were poorly timed and some may not reach large audiences (i.e twitter q&a) but to say she doesnt care and has done no hustling is bullcrap.

    Sad thing is Christina's in a mess of a period right now...so much talent but seems like either her or more likely her studio people want her to reinvent and get current. She's 35 or so, not a kid anymore. She has an amazing voice but she's got to trust herself more and the studio people less. I loved her retro style a few years back, with "Ain't No Other Man" and "Candyman" but it's been such a long time from her last really great effort, "Stripped".
