Christina Aguilera sings in Spanish for the first time in almost a decade on her female empowerment anthem “Pa Mis Muchachas,” featuring Becky G, Nathy Peluso and Nicki Nicole, which dropped Friday (Oct. 22).
She teased the single earlier this week with a sultry snippet of the music video before confirming the song’s title and three collaborators. “I am proud to reveal mi primera canción from a body of work that lives so closely to my heart,” she wrote on her socials. “And these beautiful, strong and talented women are joining forces with me for this first Guaracha.”
In the spring, Xtina revealed that she was working on her “overdue” second Spanish-language album more than 20 years after 2000’s Mi Reflejo, which peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 and ruled the Top Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums charts.
“It’s a big deal right now and it’s really nostalgic and part of my Latin culture and history,” she told Billboard in an interview in July. “So this is really, really fun to get into some family roots and explore who I am now as a woman musically. Things are coming from a different approach.”
