Christina Aguilera's Lotus album isn't doing so well. It opened at a not-so-great, not-so-bad No. 7 on the Billboard 200, lead single "Your Body" stalled at No. 34 on the Hot 100 and second single "Just a Fool" with Blake Shelton didn't even get a music video. At this point, most artists would pack up the project and move on to the next one.
That'd be the case if it weren't for "Let There Be Love," Aguilera's gem on her latest record. Without any official single announcement, the song has risen to No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play Songs, a chart dictated by the weekly songs played by club DJs across the country. The singer herself even tweeted about the No. 1.
The Max Martin-produced dance track has all the makings of a hit for today's EDM-obsessed world. It sounds a bit like Usher's Top 5 hit "DJ Got Us Fallin' Love, but it goes a step further showcasing Aguilera's otherworldly vocals.
She's teased live performances of the track with her contestants on The Voice and did a few bars at the 2012 American Music Awards, but no solo performances to date. What are you afraid of Xtina? You could nail a song like this in your sleep!
Well girl, take it from the DJs (and your friends at Fuse): Release this song. There may just be a second coming for Lotus.
