Demo of Christina Aguilera’s new single leaks

Your Body - Christina Aguilera

If the demo for “Your Body” is any indication, Christina Aguilera’s impending comeback may turn out to be an epic one. The Max Martin-produced track abandons the popular pop-dance route in favour of a more urban sound.

Xtina vocals soar — and she sounds sexy. More importantly though, she sounds like herself — i.e. she’s not trying to be Lady Gaga in this track.

Full review coming when the HQ leaks.
