Christina Aguilera's No. 1 Hits, Ranked

#1Maroon 5 - “Moves Like Jagger (ft. Christina Aguilera)”

Christina Aguilera’s most recent chart-topper, “Moves Like Jagger” is, unfortunately, also her least interesting. The Maroon 5–led, Rolling Stones–referencing smash was an obvious play for a big radio hit, and it worked beautifully, even if it didn’t really require either the pop band or Aguilera to be there. The song’s success is due nearly entirely to Shellback and Benny Blanco’s production, which prepped it for the masses perfectly. Levine and Aguilera were the right people for the job, but had one (or both) of them been swapped out for other acts, the song likely still would have performed just as well though Adam's falsetto and Xtina's belts do nicely anchor the track.
