Christina Aguilera launches new track with Demi Lovato
Christina Aguilera must realize that a six year gap between albums was way too long to wait for her fans, because she is now dropping new songs like there is no tomorrow! The pop star finally announced the release of her upcoming new record Liberation next month and dropped first single ‘Accelerate’ two weeks ago. Only a few days ago she followed it up with the gorgeous ballad ‘Twice’. Now it is time for ‘Fall In Line’, a duet with the one and only Demi Lovato!

Vocally, ‘Fall In Line’ is exactly what you would expect a Christina and Demi duet to sound like. Let’s just say that both are not exactly known for their vocal restraint… As expected, they belt their hearts out here! ‘Fall In Line’ could best be described as a soulful ballad with a progressive production. Producer Jon Bellion made some bold choices in terms of sound that effectively underline the message of the song. This is a proper feminist anthem that speaks directly to young girls. “Little girls, listen closely, cause no one told me, but you deserve to know, that in this world, you are not beholden. You do not owe them your body and your soul”, Aguilera tells her young female fans. Lovato adds: “Show some skin, make him want you, ’cause God forbid you now your own way home”, only to conclude powerfully: “You’re more than flesh and bones.”

The distorted male voice in the background tells them to shut their mouth and asks who told them they were allowed to think. To underline their message, they completely overpower him vocally with a key change that was designed to snatch some wigs (as the kids say these days). Two generations of contemporary pop stars come together on a big tune with larger than life vocals and an important message to young girls. There is literally nothing not to love about that!
