Unlike our previous single in the countdown, this fine pop specimen (criminally) wasn’t a hit. It wasn’t a massive hit anywhere with the exception of Lebanon, where (according to the gospel source Wikipedia) it smashed the top ten.
Which is a bloody shame. ‘Cause Christina’s ‘Your Body’ had the perfect pop pedigree and all the right ingredients for it to be huge across the globe.
Max Martin co-penned and co-produced it. Christina vocalled it. It was a match made in pop heaven. It’s just that radio on the whole didn’t want a bar of it.
The video featured Xtina knocking off her potential beaus one by one, all while delivering those powerhouse vocals and writhing to those sexy, pulsing beats. Max Martin and Christina Aguilera both bang on form.
It’s our No.6 Pop Single Of The Year for 2012… Christina Aguilera’s ‘Your Body’.
