Lotus is the seventh studio album by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, released on November 9, 2012 by RCA Records. Its music incorporates pop styles with elements of dance-pop, rock in the form of upbeat songs and piano-driven ballads. Aguilera described the album as a "rebirth", drawing inspiration from events in her life, her appearance on The Voice, and her divorce. The album was recorded at Aguilera's home studio. As executive producer, she collaborated with a wide range of producers, including new partners Alex da Kid, Max Martin, Lucas Secon and Tracklacers…
The soundtrack to Christina Aguilera's silver screen debut Burlesque shines the spotlight on Xtina, who is in full-bore diva mode – a return to the splashy swing of Back to Basics after the robotic R&B of Bionic. Of course, many of her collaborators from Bionic remain on Burlesque: Tricky Stewart is responsible for the glitzy dance, and Sia Furler co-writes the ballads, their contributions slotted between two Cher songs designed to push the narrative forward, two Etta James covers, a slice of heavy camp in the mincing "But I’m a Good Girl", and a Nicole Scherzinger co-written interpolation of Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People" that provides a bewildering conclusion to this soundtrack. Some of this stuff is quite good, particularly when Christina swings her hips to Etta's lead, bringing to mind the zest of "Ain’t No Other Man".
"Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti" (English: "Today I Want You") is a song written and first performed by Spanish singer-songwriter Miguel Gallardo. It was released as the first single from his studio album Autorretrato (1975). The song is about a man who confesses his love to a woman who is leaving that he is known for a long time. In 2007, Venezuelan recording artist Ricardo Montaner covered the song for his studio album, Las Mejores Canciones del Mundo, as one of the covers for the album. His version peaked #23 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart and #1 in Venezuela. In 2013, Mexican singer Alejandro Fernández and American singer Christina Aguilera performed a duet cover of the song for the telenovela La tempestad.
