New Music: T.I. f/ Christina Aguilera – ‘Castle Walls’ [Snippet]

T.I. and Christina Aguilera

T.I. explains the difficulties of living in the limelight on the somber “Castle Walls,” the latest single from No Mercy (Dec. 7). Produced by Alex Da Kid and co-written by his artist Skylar Grey, the track features a haunting instrumental over which Christina Aguilera sings a touching chorus.

“Everyone thinks that I have it all/ But it’s so empty, living behind these castle walls, these castle walls/ If I should tumble, if I should fall/ Would anyone hear me, screaming behind these castle walls/ There’s no one here at all/ Behind these castle walls.”

Listen to Xtina’s part on the 30-second snippet below.

    I can just imagine Christina ripping that chorus up – pipes for days! Hopefully TI goes hard. Alex Da Kid, huh? Sounds a little like another song he just produced…no complaints though!

    Alex said they already shot the video before he went back to prison, so all is good. “Airplanes” didn’t have much promotion either, but it still did well. Same with LTWYL. Those songs did well just off of being great songs and had peaked way before they were even performed live.

    First commenter is a major hater lol! Imma have to hear the full song with the beat, and Tip’s parts to actually judge it. But based off this snippet, T.I. and Christina are about to make a comeback into the top ten of the Hot 100. It’s been awhile since both of them have been on it
