Christina Aguilera has released “Your Body,” the first single off her upcoming fifth English-language album, Lotus.
The dance song reminiscent of “Dirrty” and “Not Myself Tonight” premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Friday and will be available for download on iTunes Sept. 17.
As expected, the lyrics were toned down from the demo that was leaked in August.
“All I wanna do is love your body/ Tonight’s your lucky night/ I know you want it,” Xtina sings in the chorus that was much more explicit in the earlier version.
“It’s true what you heard, I am a freak, I’m disturbed/ So come and give me your worst/ We’re moving faster than slow,/If you don’t know where to go, /I’ll finish off on my own,” she continues.
”This album is about self-expression and freedom,” she told Seacrest. “There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do.”
The pop star is going on three seasons of coaching on The Voice, but is rumored to be taking a break after this season to focus on her music, reportedly telling Billboard.biz that the singing competition had taken her “away from my heart, which is creating my own music.”
A sneak peek at the “Your Body” music video, directed by Melina Matsoukas – who has directed music videos for Beyonce, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Rihanna – airs on The Voice Monday.
