The ‘Stripped’ era is iconic and I love how it has influenced todays popgirls like Miley and Demi.

True BUT... she’s better than a career with only 1 iconic era. Honestly, I’d call her a lazy popstar, but the ‘popstar’ part just isn’t true anymore :roll:

IMO her first three eras were iconic; her debut proved she is the new generations vocal slay queen. Stripped solidified that status. And then her third album theme was a well calculated risk and different to what her peers were doing.

Yeah, her debut is pretty iconic too - but I understand what menime123 is saying. There's so much more potential in her and her career.

What I didn't like about her during the time she released Stripped and Back to Basics was that she somewhat disowned her first album era, I guess it was because of the experiences from the conception of the album where she was not in control. I can still remember when she went here to Manila and paid the Christina Aguilera album dust! People expected her to sing some of the old songs but it was a 70% Back to Basics songs and the concert was quite dull for a casual fan. Then, for some random retrospective bug that hit her, she began embracing it during the Bionic era which was nostalgic but sadly, she was already forgotten by the masses. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Her first album isn’t iconic though - it was pretty standard, run of the mill bubblegum stuff. Aside from her voice, there isn’t anything about that stands out and marked her a huge star. Aside from Genie, it’s a pretty forgettable era (I get it was huge in the US, but in the UK it wasn’t).

Stripped however was huge here and she showed some personality and star quality. Iconic.

BTB is my favourite Xtina album and despite the creative side of the entire project, and finding a way to stick with pop music in a very un-pop era was great. But nowadays it’s pretty forgettable outside of ANOM - which is the last time she had a top 10 hit here (outside of her features).

The last time she ever really had genuine success as a solo star was with BTB era and she must know it. I’m all for her taking time to have a life, figure out what she wants to say and raise her kids away from all the madness...

But she’s wasted the last decade really, as far as her career has gone.

^ I don’t think her debut is forgettable at all. And neither is B2B - I actual think that out of the 3 singles from this album ANOM is the most forgettable one.

I do agree that she waste the last decade. Unfortunately I think it will very hard for her to have a successful comeback

Depends where you are in the world I suppose. For example, her first album was a US #1produced 3 US #1 singles. In the UK, it stalled at #14, produced just 1 UK #1 and ITTY was a certified flop (only #19).

If she hadn’t been an international act and had instead been a UK act, at the time an album at #14 and a flop at #19 would have almost certainly meant she’d have been dropped here.

So you know, it depends where you are I suppose when looking st her first album. Stripped however was huge here - Dirrty and Beautiful both gave her a UK #1.

As for her debut I think it depends on where you live. I think it is mildly iconic in certain places while it is forgotten in some others. "Back to basics" was her last successful era and "Hurt" did become one of her signature songs in some specific markets (Austria, etc) while it is forgotten in others, but overall I do agree with menime123, its not really a much remembered era outside of her fanbase.

"Stripped" has the "Dirrty" / "Beautiful" / "Fighter" set which became a core in Xtina's career and among her most memorable songs and most remembered periods.

Other than:

Genie
Moulin Rouge
Dirrty
Beautiful
Fighter
Voice Within
ANOM

People might struggle to name more (her features aside). And really, the only ones I’d add to that list would probably be Candyman/WAGW.

I'm not interested in a Demi duet, I feel like it's so predictable for her to release a song with another big vocal singer. I am more interested in the solo stuff.

I don't like Demi Lovato and don't need featuring anyway, so my interest in a song with her is kinda low

Not a big fan of Demi, but a duet could be good.

A Demi Lovato duet is better than no music at all :)
