Christina Aguilera Transforms Into Disco Diva In New Video “Telepathy”
Christina Aguilera released a disco music video for her new song “Telepathy” on Monday.
The singer premiered a short clip for a condensed version of her latest single, marking the her first solo video in over four years.
“I wanted to make a fun video for my fans since ‘Telepathy’ from The Get Down is #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart,” she wrote on Facebook. “Thanks to all the fans, radio and DJs loving the song! XoXtina.”
The track, which features Nile Rodgers, makes part of the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix series The Get Down, released in August. The TV show is all about disco and the evolution of hip-hop.
The disco-themed music video takes place in glittering set, embellished with flashing lights and bright colors, reminding fans of the singer’s “Lady Marmalade” era.
Though the “Beautiful” hitmaker hasn’t released a new album since 2012’s Lotus, “Telepathy” marks Aguilera’s second single released in 2016. In June, she debuted the ballad “Change” whose download sales were donated to the National Compassion Fund to benefit the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida.
As Aguilera is currently working on Lotus’ follow-up, she took a break from her judging role on popular show The Voice, with Miley Cyrus taking her place on the hit NBC program.
