Christina Aguilera Enlists ‘Ex’s & Oh’s’ Singer Elle King for Upcoming Album
Truthfully, there hasn't been much to SAY! about GRAMMY Award-winning Lotus legend Christina Aguilera's follow-up to her 2012 record in a while now, apart from the fact that she's been pretty inspired by "yoga and breathing," recording a follow-up to her Spanish language debut Mi Reflejo and reuniting with a few producers to make some "classic magic."
But now, at the very least, we've got a new name to add the potential collaborator list.
The Bionic superstar gave a shout-out to Elle King, the spitfire blues-rock singer best known for her rowdy banger "Ex's & Oh's" (which slowly-but-surely exploded across radio over the course of a year) as part of Elle's (fitting!) "Who Are You Listening To?" feature in this month's issue.
"She's raw, relatable, and a little gritty...she has a really honest approach to telling a story," the Voice icon told the magazine, which slipped in the essential X8 info afterward: "Aguilera has tapped [King] for songwriting help on her own upcoming album."
This is very, very good news! Elle's growling delivery and feisty, f--ks-free personality are a match made in outspoken heaven for the "Dirrty" singer, who certainly knows a thing or two about injecting plenty o' sass into her lyricism and calling out those bobblehead exes — and of course, the powerhouse performer is no stranger to a growl.
Can't hold these two down. Xtina's and Oh's! Rejoice, true lovers of music!
