Give her some room, this album is overdue!
So, it’s been a long while since we got a new album from Christina Aguilera. Her last proper album, Lotus, was released in November of 2012. And in the years since she has insisted that her new album was “coming soon.”
In fact, it’s a bit of a joke…she’s been talking about her new album “coming soon” going back to at least 2015 (as this video compilation points out):
Well, late last night, Xtina posted this image to her Instagram Story:
YUP!!! Not only did she announce that her album is truly coming out soon, but, she also acknowledged the running joke about it.
There have been some signs that her new album and era was coming soon. Back in November, Xtina pulled a Taylor and deleted all of her old photos on her Instagram and just left this one up:
Pink recently revealed that she had recorded a duet with Xtina for the new album. While other rumored collaborators include Thundercat and Janelle Monáe.

Honestly, it sounds like this new Xtina album is going to be EPIC.
