Christina Aguilera Wiki

Lotus is the seventh studio album by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, released on November 9, 2012 by RCA Records. Its music incorporates pop styles with elements of dance-pop, rock in the form of upbeat songs and piano-driven ballads. Aguilera described the album as a "rebirth" to her, drawing inspiration from events in her life, including the low sales figures of her sixth album Bionic (2010), appearing on The Voice, and her divorce. She recorded the album at her home studio; as executive producer, she enlisted new collaborators, such as the known Alex da Kid, Max Martin, Lucas Secon, and new producers such as Mike Del Rio, Jamie Hartman, Aeon Manahan, Chris Braide, Supa Dups and Jason Gilbert.

Upon its release, Lotus was met with generally mixed reviews from music critics, who were ambivalent towards its lyrics and found its music conventional. The album debuted at number seven on the US Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 73,408 units. Internationally, the album charted moderately, marking career lows for Aguilera. Its lead single "Your Body" reached number 34 on the US Billboard Hot 100, while reaching the top-forty in several countries.
