Global Superstar Christina Aguilera to Premiere Video for "Your Body" Across VEVO & Various MTV Network Properties Today
Global superstar Christina Aguilera will be premiering the video for her new single “Your Body” across VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, as well at various MTV properties today. “Your Body” is the first single off Aguilera’s upcoming album Lotus which will be released on November 13th through RCA Records. "Your Body" is currently available for download at: http://smarturl.it/yourbody.
At 12pm EST today the video will premiere across VEVO and be broadcast simultaneously on mtvU, MTV Hits, Logo and will also appear on MTV.com, VH1.com and Logotv.com. Additionally the video will debut on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown on Saturday, September 29th.
On Wednesday a 30 second clip of the video premiered on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and yesterday that 30 second clip was made available on VEVO. Earlier this month the first exclusive sneak peak of the video premiered on NBC’s The Voice.
Filmed over 2 days on location in and around Los Angeles with award-winning director, Melina Matsoukas, the video takes an unexpected and whimsical approach to the song. The imagery is fun, colorful and campy with a bold twist one would expect from this highly visual artist.
Aguilera says, “I really had fun shooting this video and getting into the characters that Melina created. There are little vignettes that tell a playful and tongue and cheek story. Nothing in this video should be taken literally from the scenarios, to the colors to the wardrobe….and that’s what made it so much fun.”
Stills were shot on locations by photographer Mark Hunter, aka thecobrasnake.
One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, Christina Aguilera has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved four No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won five Grammy awards. She has also received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has the prestigious honor of being the only artist under the age of 30 included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest singers of all time. In 2011 she entered the world of TV as a coach on NBC’s Emmy Award nominated show The Voice. Christina continues to use her voice for good. She has served as global spokesperson for Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief effort since 2009 where her participation has helped raise over $80 million for the World Food Program and other hunger relief agencies.
