m8riarchy Name Their Favourite Christina Aguilera Songs Ahead of Xtina’s One-Off Melbourne Show

Christina Aguilera will perform at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on Saturday, 25th November. It’s her first Australian performance in 15 years, and a one-off appearance in the country as part of the Victorian Government’s ALWAYS LIVE festival.

The US popstar is returning down under 18 months after the release of her latest album, Aguilera, the second Spanish-language album of her career. The multi-part album includes guest appearances from Puerto Rican artist Ozuna, Mexican-American artist Becky G and Argentine singer TINI, among others.

Christina Aguilera – ‘Genie in a Bottle’

Aguilera’s solo career dates back to the turn of the Millennium, when she released the chart-topping single ‘Genie in a Bottle’. The corresponding album, 1999’s Christina Aguilera, was a huge success in the US, Australia and the UK, likewise its English-language follow-up, Stripped (2002).

Plenty of songs from the aforementioned albums have been embraced by Melbourne/Naarm pop duo m8riarchy, who’re one of three acts supporting Aguilera at Flemington Racecourse. Ahead of the show – which will also feature Jessica Mauboy and Natalie Bassingthwaighte – m8riarchy’s Krissy and Tarsha tell us about their favourite Xtina hits.

Christina Aguilera’s Top 5, According to m8riarchy

1. Dirrty (feat. Redman)

M8riarchy: Could this be one of the most iconic moments in pop culture history? Christina brings the sexy vocals, big beats and an unforgettable music video that sent our hearts and wardrobes into a tailspin.

2. What a Girl Wants

M8riarchy: Such a vulnerable yet confident track from Christina’s debut album. We love the pairing of Xtina’s dynamic R&B vocal with that quintessential 90s production.

3. Can’t Hold Us Down (feat. Lil’ Kim)

M8riarchy: An anthem for the matriarchy. The fierce energy, powerful lyrics and playful feminist messaging has shaped our songwriting and production. Girl Power Energy!

4. Beautiful

M8riarchy: Now, who doesn’t love a heartfelt ballad? The result of two amazing women in music combining their talents. The song’s writer, Linda Perry, has worked with Alicia Keys, Pink, Ariana Grande and loads more. Another incredible song that showcases the range of genres that Christina’s voice lends itself to. Yas Queen!

5. Santo (feat. Ozuna)

M8riarchy: We’re all about connecting with our roots. ‘Santo’ is such a sexy Latina dance-floor banger. We’re vibing on the hypnotic Colombian beats paired with Christina’s sultry vocal delivery.
