It’s been almost two decades since Christina Aguilera released an album in Spanish, and she’s finally ready for its follow-up. The five-time Grammy winner decided to go back to her roots and work on a Latin-themed album the next time she goes back to the studio.
Aguilera shared the exciting news shortly after kicking off her Las Vegas residency, Xperience, and set down with Billboard to explain why she decided to work on this project.
“I want to really experience it from the ground up. I always heard my parents speak it in the house, but I never fully learned [Spanish]. I’m even digging in and trying to start the lessons – it’ll take a little time balancing the show and the recording hours, but it’s coming,” promised Aguilera.
She also shared her plan to work with and learn from musicians who “eat, sleep and breathe” Latin music.
It’s great to see how passionate she is about this project, and expectations are running high. Her Spanish-language album Mi Reflejo from 2000 won Latin Grammy for best female pop vocal album of the year.
