Single Cover: Christina Aguilera – ‘Not Myself Tonight’

Not Myself Tonight

Christina Aguilera gets naughty on the black-and-white cover for “Not Myself Tonight,” the first single from her fourth studio album Bionic. The pop singer has collaborated with M.I.A., Flo Rida, Sia, Claude Kelly, and Tricky Stewart, among others, on the project.

“She’s mixing it up again. She’s singing R&B again, she’s doing pop. She’s doing it all, but she’s found a way to make it all meet in the middle because she’s so many different things,” Tricky told Rap-Up.com last year. “She’s a real serious musician, she’s a real serious pop artist, and she’s a real serious singer. She’s making all her audiences happy at the same time.”

    Hmm.. idk what to say. It’s very dark, & demonic to me. I love her, but this is a bit much. But, since I love her, & more importantly her MUSIC, i’ll take it with a grain of salt for now.

    Well its about time. Xtina can sing circles around just about most of the pop stars out today. Not crazy about the cover but I will let the music speak for itself. So when can we expect the song???

    can’t wait….been a fan since Back to basics (one of the most original pieces of pop music in the 00′s in my opinion). She’s probably one of the smartest and most creative popstars of this generation. You never know what she’ll come up with next…..I’m especially looking forward to her collab with M.I.A….now that will be wicked!!!

    I love the cover, but I cud do without the horns, and everything else thats drawn in, it looks a little cheesy to me. I am excited to hear wat shes gonna bring to the table,she has a tough act to follow with Lady Gaga being on the scene, especially since she publicly dissed her wen asked if she was copying her style.

    Christina is back, y’all! By the way it’s just a single cover, probably won’t have much to do with the album cover or artwork.

    I really dig the single cover. It’s edgy, yet classy. The perfect combination of her B2B and Stripped looks.

    She betta werk! I can’t wait to hear her new material. I’ve been missing her on the radio. Sounds like the album will have a lot of more urban tracks on it. Maybe we’ll get some urban electro, but then again Christina has been a diehard R&B fan since she was little and will always incorporate her roots into her records. She looks everyone from Nina Simone and Billie Holiday to Aretha and Chaka to Whitney and Toni and D’Angelo, India.Arie and Erykah Badu

    Christina is taking over 2010….I cannot wait to see what she brings out this album. She’s working with some of the most creatively different writers/producers out..she’s always doing the unexpected. I like the cover I think its hot and artsy.

    Something about what she’s wearing and the way she’s posing remind me of Madonna in the “Hard Candy” photo’s. Looking forward to the song though!

    [Reply]

  43. nikki

    I think Christina is great, but it’s obvious that the photo is almost the same as Madonna’s Hard Candy

    [Reply]

  44. ...

    would love if christina brings more urban sounds back, a little tired of everyone doing electro and working with guetta

    and of course it reminds you of something…nearly everything reminds one of something! we have 2010!

    and not everyone can put a lobster on their heads

    Below are the final radio premiere times. The single will now premiere LIVE everywhere around the world. Previously, there was a slight delay in the times when you’d be able to hear the song locally on radio. This is in a bid to have the new song on radio and other media at the exact same time no matter where you are in the world.

    Here’s a brief timezone rundown of when you listen to hear the new single.

    New York, Z100 – World Exclusive premiere. Tuesday, March 30th @ 6pm (local time).
    Los Angeles, Kiis FM – Tuesday, March 30th @ 3pm (local time).

    London, Radio One/Capital FM/Kiss100 – Simultaneous premiere. Tuesday, March 30th @ 11pm (local time).

    Paris. Wednesday, March 31st @ 12am midnight (local time).

    Australia. Wednesday, March 31st @ 9am (local time).

    Auckland, NZ. Wednesday, March 31st @ 12pm (local time).

    India. Wednesday, March 31st @ 3:30am (local time) (local radio to premiere at 6am)

    For other timezones you’ll need to convert them yourself. These timezones are just a guide.
