  • Thalia, Paulina Rubio, Christina Aguilera Open Up About Landmark 2000 Albums: Exclusive

    CHRISTINA AGUILERA - Mi Reflejo (Sept. 12, 2000)

    Mi Reflejo was Aguilera's first, and only, Spanish language album.

    "I remember when I was first coming up, there was a big debate around me on changing my last name because all the businessmen around me thought it was too long, too complicated, and too ethnic," she says. "'Christina Agee' was an option, but that clearly wasn’t going to fly. I was dead set against the idea and I wanted to represent who I really was. Being Latina, it is a part of my heritage and who I am.

    ‪"There was another time in my childhood when I was being asked to legally change my name to my stepfather’s to be legally adopted and I was again dead set against it," Aguilera adds. "I've been fighting for my last name my whole life."‬

    ‪She lived up to that last name, recording Spanish versions of her hits like "Genie in a Bottle" and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want is You)." "I was excited to bring a new life to [these songs] and reinvent some things," she says. "I was allowed to create and express new ad libs and vocal runs that I wasn’t given the freedom to do on the original record. Everything sounds better in Spanish. Let's be honest."‬

    ‪What Aguilera enjoyed the most about Mi Reflejo was the new songs she recorded for the album like the heartbreaking "Pero Me Acuerdo de Ti."‬

    ‪"I recorded [the album] in Miami with Rudy Pιrez, who really took me under his wing," Aguilera says. "He helped coach me when I was unsure. He didn't cage me into a specific stereotype, introducing me to classic boleros like 'Contigo En La Distancia,' which I still include in my setlists and love singing to this day."‬

    ‪Before going big with "Despacito," Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi featured on Aguilera's "Si No Te Hubiera Conocido." "I was taken with his vocal ability, talent, and charm," she says. ‬
    Mi Reflejo peaked at No. 1 on both the Top Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums charts. "It was a beautiful thing to experience success in different markets and have a diverse fan base that grew in appreciating who I am," Aguilera says. "I am very proud of my Latin Grammy [for Best Female Pop Vocal Album] in honor of that album. My message, as in all my music, stands for being fearless to explore who you are. It's never too late to open a new door. Although it's scary to dive into territory that isn't your first language, it still doesn't erase who I am and how I want to express myself in all aspects of what intrigues and inspires me."

    As for that next Latin music album from Aguilera, she's ready to be more personal with it. "I am getting back to my roots and exploring who I am now as a grown woman who doesn’t have to cover my own English material in Spanish, but as a woman who can draw from my own personal experiences and express that with honesty," she says. "Having survived decades in this business, I am proud to tell the truth about what that means to me."

                  I think this one is lost forever. That vault combination had been lost probably

                    She probably forgot she said it to be honest, she well known to say things are gonna happen them nothing happens. I’m not expecting anything till 2022 sadly.

                    • The thing is that whatever it was it probably would feel like Liberation 2.0. I'd love that. But knowing how she mixes up things with every new release I'm afraid those songs will end up being overhauled and I just hope it's not something like Flopus.

                                    • I never knew that "Don’t Make Me Love You" was included on the soundtrack of Madonna's "The Next Best Thing". Great song by the way.

                                      • I rlly wonder what it sounds like new version of "Reflection". Hope it's out soon, so we can forget about Mulan songs/soundtrack, and hopefully she'll focus on new real music. Spanish album obvi is "confirmed" and rumored about almost 2 years, so she better release it this fall or she never even has to. I'm not rlly into her spanish material tbh.
                                        I guess we'll wait for at least 2 years more for new english album :( minimum 2 years and knowing Xtina next album wiill be out in 2025 :(

                                        • I just hope the Spanish album has some Spanglish songs so I can at least understand a little, better for streams too.

                                          the Soundtrack is out Sept 4th I think, so 2 weeks and Reflection 2020 is out.

                                          • Xtina's debut album was released 21 years ago today. I'm still salty about that 20th anniversary edition never seeing the light of the day.

                                            Anyway So Emotional, When You Put Your Hands On Me & Don’t Make Me Love You are underrated teen pop gems.
