Bionic is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Christina Aguilera. It was first released on June 4, 2010, by RCA Records (Sony Music). The eighteen-track album sees Aguilera collaborating with a new range of producers and songwriters including Tricky Stewart, Polow da Don and Samuel Dixon, each of whom have three producing credits on the album. The album incorporates several different musical styles including R&B, pop, electropop, and synthpop.

Bionic is Aguilera's first studio album in four years since Back to Basics (2006). Upon release in the United States, the album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 albums chart with sales of 110,000 copies. It had mixed success in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number one but then went on to register the largest single weekly decline for a number one album in UK chart history. Upon release, the album received mixed reviews from most music critics, who were ambivalent towards its musical direction and Aguilera's lyrical persona.

The lead single from Bionic, "Not Myself Tonight", premiered on March 30, 2010 via Aguilera's official website. The song was officially released as a single on April 13, 2010, and charted within the top 40 in most countries. The second single, "Woohoo", featuring Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj, was sent to US rhythmic radio on May 18, 2010, and failed to make much of an impact, only charting at number seventy-nine on the US Billboard Hot 100, due to digital sales. The third and final single, "You Lost Me" was released on July 6, 2010. Aguilera promoted the album by doing a number of television appearances, and further planned to promote it on the 2010 Bionic Tour, which was canceled shortly after its announcement.

Background and development

On the Asian leg of the Back to Basics Tour during the summer of 2007, Aguilera said that her upcoming album would be "short, sweet and completely different" from her previous long play Back to Basics (2006). After the birth of her son, Aguilera stated in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that her forthcoming album would include a totally new aspect of herself as an artist, because of the pregnancy with her son.[1]

Recording

In a February 2008 interview with People, Aguilera stated that she was going to start recording new material for her forthcoming album at her Beverly Hills home.[2] DJ Premier, who at the time was working on projects for his label, Year Round Records, shared plans to head back into the studio with Aguilera, saying "She's doing an all pop album again, but she wants me to keep the tone like what we did before. She's ready to start next month."[3] Linda Perry, who had previously worked with Aguilera was to be included in the project too.[4] In an interview with Billboard in October 2008 Aguilera said that the album would be mostly produced by Perry.[5] Aguilera set about contacting collaborators on her own accord, at the behest of then-husband Jordan Bratman, without relying on the record label A&R.[6] Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler and her collaborator Samuel Dixon worked with Aguilera on a number of tracks for the album.[7] Aguilera told Billboard that she is a big fan of Furler and stated that she was thrilled when Furler said that she wanted to work with her as well.[8] They recorded together in the studio in January 2009,[8] and according to Furler's blog, the duo wrote four songs together during the sessions.[9]

Members of British electronic band Ladytron, Daniel Hunt and Reuben Wu, went to Los Angeles to meet Aguilera in December 2008 after hearing that they were one of Aguilera's favorite bands. During the meeting, Aguilera identified what kind of Ladytron songs she liked, with Hunt later saying "We were impressed because she had a real deep knowledge of our music – album tracks, not just the singles!".[10] Ladytron said following about the sessions with the singer, "We went in with no expectations; the whole thing was a massive surprise. But it was incredible. She was so musically talented, a vocalist who really knows her voice. The first takes sounded really amazing, and while we'd made demos, it was only when her voice was on them that it all came to life. It's nice to talk about them, we've been sitting on this for a while."[11] They finished the work with Aguilera in March 2009 and produced 4 or 5 tracks,[10][12] but only 3 songs made the final cut.[13] British band Goldfrapp said in a January 2010 interview that they did not finish the studio session and did not know whether their songs will make the final cut.[14]

The Australian said that the production team The Neptunes were to work with Aguilera on the album.[15] In an interview with HitQuarters, Dr. Dre protege Focus... said, "We did a song and an interlude together."[16] He produced the beats for the track "Sex for Breakfast" which were then worked on by Aguilera and producer Noel "Detail" Fisher.[16] Focus... got involved with the project because he and Aguilera share a loyal, long-time engineer in Oscar Ramirez and Ramirez suggested and arranged the pairing.[16] Of the experience Focus... commented, "[Aguilera] knows exactly what she is looking for and is not afraid to tell you. It was the first project I've ever worked on where someone sent me examples and showed me exact parts in the song they were looking for."[16] Aguilera announced on her E! Special that she was going to be working with American dance-punk band Le Tigre.[17][18] Aguilera said in August 2009, that she co-wrote tracks with British Tamil songwriter M.I.A. and Santigold, and according to the producer Tricky Stewart, Flo Rida would be featured on the album.[2][19] Producer Polow Da Don, who produced two of the three singles released from the project, was the only producer to be suggested by RCA and not contacted by Aguilera personally.[6]

Additionally Stewart and Claude Kelly wrote the song "Glam" which will appear on the album. It was described as "a hard club song that's about high fashion. It's really for the ladies about getting dressed and looking your best, working it in the club and getting glam and sexy before you go out. ... It will surprise people. I'm calling it a modern day "Vogue." I wouldn’t say it unless I believed it."[20] Kelly also co-wrote three other tracks for the album, including first two singles "Woohoo" and "Not Myself Tonight". He described the four tracks as all being "up-tempo and fun, they're party anthems but at the same time have underlying messages."[21] Commenting on the experience of working with Aguilera, Kelly said, "What people don’t know about her is that she’s actually a really good writer. She has good ideas, good melodies, good concepts … She’s really involved from the very beginning to the very end."[21]

Composition

"Working on this album with so many talented artists and producers that I admire was really an amazing experience. The artists I chose to work with added so many unique sonic layers to Bionic. My intention was to step into their world and what they do combined with my own vision and sound. The results were magic."[22]

—Aguilera on working with working with many producers

Aguilera described the album as a unique mix of many genres and styles of music: "I was able to explore and create a fresh, sexy feel using both electronic and organic elements with subject matter ranging from playful to introspective. I am so excited for my fans to hear the new sound. It is something I don't think anyone will expect."[22] She later went on to say "Each album I release is a representation of my personal life experiences and how they have shaped me. ... Over the past four years ... I have become a mother, a wife, and most recently an actress ... This album was put together to capture all of these characteristics [therefore] I chose to collaborate with a variety of artists and producers across different musical genres. I was able to explore and create a fresh, sexy feel using both electronic and organic elements with subject matters ranging from playful to introspective. This allowed me to challenge myself by using my voice in ways I never had before."[22]

Bionic received mixed reviews from most music critics.[33] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 56, based on 21 reviews, which indicates "mixed or average reviews".[33] Slant Magazine's Eric Henderson commented that the album is as "efficient a pop entertainment" as was Britney Spears' Circus.[30] Jon Pareles of The New York Times criticized Aguilera's "sexbot" persona on the album and noted that its musical direction "makes her sound as peer-pressured as a pop singer can be."[27] Omar Kholeif of PopMatters commended its tracks with "retro mixture of shouty pop and robot glam", but stated "it is Aguilera’s overzealous penchant for excess that leaves this comeback short of, well, being any good".[28] Rolling Stone writer Rob Sheffield gave it two-and-a-half out of five stars and criticized its "Gaga-style robot glam" and "cranking up" of Auto-Tune.[29] Christopher R. Weingarten of Spin commented that the album's "forward-thinking production" is buried under "reverb, distortion, and computer st-st-stutter[s]" and wasted on tracks that contained "cringworthy lines".[31] Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt viewed that Aguilera's vocal talent is "too often negated" by her "penchant for stock step-class beats and an aggressive, exhausting hypersexuality."[24]

However, Allmusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine viewed that the "robot-diva hybrids are often interesting even when they stumble".[23] Los Angeles Times writer Margaret Wappler complimented Aguilera's "hyper-sexed lover bot" persona as the album's "most successful vein"[26] USA Today's Elysa Gardner gave the album three out of four stars and wrote that Auguilera "harnesses her prowess with greater maturity and imagination".[34] Kerri Mason of Billboard viewed that Bionic "shows an artist confident enough to take direct cues from her tuned-in creative team".[35] The Times writer Pete Paphides gave it four out of five stars and complimented Aguilera's musical direction, writing that the album sounds "older and more confident" than her previous work.[36] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian commented that the album is "occasionally brilliant and brave, occasionally teeth-gritting and stupid album."[25] Dan Martin of NME gave it a five out of 10 rating and stated "Daring as some of the tracks are, they overwhelmingly loop her vocal around a generic house lick that has the effect of giving her very little to do vocally".[37] Allison Stewart of The Washington Post called it "noisy, robotic and overstuffed" and felt that one of the album's "greatest disappointments" is its "virtual abandonment" of Aguilera's voice.[38] The A.V. Club's Genevieve Koski viewed that Bionic's heavy reliance on a cadre of music writers and producers resulted in a "extremely muddled effect."[39]

Entertainment Weekly later named Bionic the fifth worst album of 2010 in a year-end list.[40] The album was named by Billboard the best mainstream pop album of 2010.[41]

Commercial performance

"The way she played the album to me was her original vision. She was on the right track but the record label f**ked up everything, to be honest. All the good stuff got pumped into disc two. I think that if she would have done what she had in mind it would have been better. I also think that with what she had in mind she could have [sidestepped] all the kind of potential comparison with Lady GaGa which, you know, at the time it was that nightmare for her. She would have done it in the smart way and she would have been renowned now, but her record label instead wanted to put her against [GaGa]."

Ladytron talking about "Bionic" not meeting their expectations.[42]

Unlike Aguilera's previous studio albums, Bionic had trouble maintaining commercial success in the international markets. On the week ending June 26, 2010,[43] the album debuted at number three on the United States Billboard 200 (first-week sales of 110,000 copies).[44] However, those first-week sales were comparatively less than those of Aguilera's previous studio album, Back to Basics (2006), which hit number one with 346,000 copies sold.[44] The following week the album fell to number nine with sales of 36,388 copies.[45] In its third week, Bionic dropped to number 22.[46] It has since sold 295,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen SoundScan.[47]

The album ranked as the year's 76th-best-selling album in the United States.[48] On the week ending June 26, 2010, Bionic debuted at its peak position, number three, on the Canadian Albums Chart.[49] In the following week, it charted at number nine.[50] In the United Kingdom, Bionic debuted at number one on the Top 40 Albums Chart, becoming Aguilera's second consecutive studio album to enter at the top of the chart[51] although with 24,000 copies sold; it became the lowest selling UK number one album in eight years.[52] However, in the album's second week on the UK chart, it made UK chart history when on June 20, it registered the largest drop in chart history for a number one album by falling twenty-eight places to number twenty nine.[53] Bionic fared somewhat better on mainland Europe. On the week commencing June 14, the album entered and peaked at number three on the Australian Albums Chart, by the third week, Bionic descended to number sixteen on the chart.[54] Bionic debuted at number one on the European Top 100 Albums Chart, becoming the singer's second consecutive studio album to top the chart.[55] The album held the top position for one week.[56]

Bionic was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for shipments exceeding 35,000 copies.[57] It also charted and peaked at number eight on the Italian Albums Chart[58] and number six on the Germany Albums Top 50 Chart.[59] The album charted within the top twenty on charts in Poland, Finland and Norway, peaking at number seven, number ten and number twenty.[58] On the twenty-third week of 2010, the album debuted at the top position of the Greek Top 50 Albums Chart,[60] replacing Soulfly's Omen.[61] By its third week, Bionic fell out of the charts top 50 positions, and re-entered the next week at number twenty-seven.[60] Another successful charting territory for Bionic was Switzerland, where the album peaked at number two.[62] The album charted within the charts top twenty-five positions for five consecutive weeks.[62] Bionic charted within the top twenty-five positions in Belgium Flanders and Belgium Wallonia, peaking at number four and twenty-three respectively.[58] The album also managed to become a top ten hit in Austria, Ireland, New Zealand, Mexico and Sweden.[58] In Denmark, the album peaked at number twelve.[58] On the week ending June 12, Bionic debuted on the French Albums Chart at number 23, and fell to number 135 by the fifth week.[58] As of December 2010, it has sold over 10,000 copies there.[63]

Singles

"Not Myself Tonight" was released as Bionic's lead single on April 13, 2010. It debuted and peaked at number twenty-three on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Aguilera's third solo highest debut on the chart after "Keeps Gettin' Better" (2008) and "Ain't No Other Man" (2006).[64] Internationally, the song had a moderate commercial success, peaking at number twelve in the United Kingdom,[65] in the top thirty in both Austria and Australia and in the top forty in New Zealand and Sweden.[66] The song received generally positive reviews from critics, who complimented its club nature and Aguilera's vocals on the track; some reviewers also referred to it as her best uptempo recording since her 2002 single "Dirrty".[67] The accompanying music video, directed by Hype Williams, featured a S&M theme, with Aguilera sporting different bondage-inspired looks.[68][69] Paying homage to Madonna's music videos for "Express Yourself" (1989) and "Human Nature" (1995),[68] the video received mixed reviews from critics, who complimented its aesthetic but called it unoriginal.[70] "Woohoo" featuring rapper Nicki Minaj was released as the second single from Bionic. It was made exclusively available to the iTunes Store on May 18, 2010[71] before being serviced to rhythmic radio on May 25, 2010.[72] The track peaked at number 148 on the United Kingdom's singles chart due to high digital sales, but it was never released as a single there.[73] The single has received generally positive reviews, with critics praising Minaj's appearance in the song and commending Aguilera's powerful vocals.[74][75]

"You Lost Me" was released as the album's third single on July 6, 2010. The song was sent to Mainstream/Top 40 radio on June 29, 2010, in the United States.[76][77] Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly called "You Lost Me" a "lovely" ballad[24] and Amber James of PopEater said the song was a "somber track" that brings the "honesty and emotion that have made Aguilera one of the premier balladeers of our time."[78] The music video premiered on Aguilera's official Vevo account on July 22. The music video's director, Anthony Mandler, also wrote the concept for the video, which features a series of connected vignettes. The song topped the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart, making it the second single from Bionic to do so, after "Not Myself Tonight".[78]

Promotion

Aguilera revealed the title of the album as well as the name of three new songs in the February 2010 issue of Marie Claire magazine. On January 22, 2010, Aguilera premiered a stripped-down version of the Linda Perry produced "Lift Me Up" during the Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief telethon.[79] Aguilera was also featured on the June cover of GQ Germany,[80] the June/July cover of Latina[81] and the June cover of Out.[82] On May 7, 2010, Aguilera performed "Not Myself Tonight" on The Oprah Winfrey Show.[83]

"You Lost Me" was performed on May 26, 2010, on the American Idol finale.[84] Aguilera performed a medley of "Bionic", "Not Myself Tonight" and "Woohoo" at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on June 6.[85] On the release day of the album in the United States, June 8, 2010, Aguilera performed a medley of "Bionic" and "Not Myself Tonight" as well as "Beautiful", "Fighter" and "You Lost Me" on The Today Show.[86] On June 9, 2010, Aguilera gave and interview and performed "You Lost Me" on the Late Show with David Letterman.[87] She performed "Not Myself Tonight" and gave an interview on Live with Regis and Kelly on June 10, 2010.[88] Aguilera performed "Fighter", "You Lost Me", "Not Myself Tonight" along with a medley of "Genie in a Bottle"/"What a Girl Wants" on The Early Show on June 11, 2010.[89] On June 13, 2010, Aguilera was featured on VH1 Storytellers[90] as well as on Behind the Music.[91]

"I Hate Boys" was released as a promotional single from the album in Australia only. It was sent to Australian radio on June 28, 2010,[92] and released digitally on September 3, 2010[93] in a two-track single.[94][95] It was the eighth most added track to radio stations from the week ending July 23, 2010.[96] It has peaked at number 28 on the Australian Airplay Chart[97] but failed to chart on the Australian Singles Chart.

Aguilera planned to further promote the album by embarking on the Bionic Tour. Twenty concerts were scheduled across the United States and Canada between July 15, 2010, and August 19, 2010. British singer Leona Lewis was scheduled to be the tour's supporting act and the tour would be considered the North American leg of Lewis's The Labyrinth tour.[98] On May 24, 2010, Aguilera postponed the tour until 2011. In a message on her website and from tour promoter Live Nation, Aguilera stated that due to the excessive promotion of the album and her then upcoming film debut in Burlesque, she felt she needed more time to rehearse the show and with less than a month between the album release and tour, it was not possible to create and perform a show at the level that her fans expect from her.[99][100]
