Pop superstar Christina Aguilera premiered the new song "Change" on June 16. Proceeds from her powerful number will go toward helping the victims and families affected by last weekend's Orlando nightclub shooting.
"Change" is Aguilera's first taste of new music since the release of her last album, 2012's Lotus. During her break from music, she guested on Pitbull's "Feel This Moment" and A Great Big World's "Say Something" while serving as a coach on The Voice. For the last year, Xtina's been hard at work on material for her next album. Sadly, it took last Sunday's tragedy at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, to move the singer to put out something. She uses her voice to spread some love on the special release.
Aguilera penned "Change" with gay artist Who is Fancy and Flo Reutter, who also doubles as the song's producer. Atop light percussion and horns, she expresses her thoughts on the world today along with some words of inspiration. "Waiting for the day when hate is lost and love is found / Waiting for a change," she belts. Christina seamlessly shift gears between a restrained performance and moments where she vocally lets loose. "Change" is a little soulful tune with a heartfelt message capable of reaching the heavens in Xtina's hands.
"Change" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Sales from the single will go toward the National Compassion Fund. Those looking to help can also donate to official GoFundMe page for the Orlando victims and their families here.
