Christina Aguilera is hard at work on not one but two albums, including her “overdue” Spanish-language LP.
The U.S. pop veteran is recording an English LP and a Spanish set, just her second after 2000’s Mi Reflejo (My Reflection), which peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and ruled the Top Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums surveys.
“I’m months away from anything being announced,” she tells Health magazine. “I’m simultaneously working on my English record and the follow-up to my debut Spanish album – about 20 years overdue.”
The New York City-born singer scored her seventh Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 when most recent album, 2018’s Liberation, opened at No. 6. Liberation was her first album since 2012.
Aguilera updated her fans last month with two posts from the studio.
“I’m a perfectionist and want to give everything my best – especially because of the soul-searching I’ve done over the past year and the new perspective I have,” she tells Health. “I am reinspired and have reconnected with myself. I’ve fallen in love with music all over again, which is a really big thing to say, having spent my entire career in music.”
It’s too early for release dates or titles, though Xtina says her new works are all about honesty. “I’ve been approaching all of my writing sessions by being an open book and saying, ‘Look, this is how I felt’,” she explains.
Aguilera’s father is from Ecuador. In 2015, she visited his birthplace for the first time when she made the trip for relief efforts.
