Ook Christina Aguilera zet, net als Justin Timberlake en Britney Spears, haar eerste muzikale stappen in de Mickey Mouse Club. Het programma stopt echter in 1994 en het lukt de zangeres niet om een platencontract binnen te slepen.

Vanwege haar stembereik mag ze, in 1998, een nummer zingen op de soundtrack van de Disney-film Mulan. Als het nummer een nominatie krijgt voor een Golden Globe breekt Aguilera alsnog door.

Van haar debuutalbum, dat eind 1999 verschijnt, wordt Genie In A Bottle een top 2-notering in de Top 40.

In 2002 verschijnt haar tweede album, Stripped, waarvan vijf singles in de Top 40 terecht komen.

Vier jaar later verschijnt Back To Basics, wat zelfs een dubbel-cd was. Van dat album is Hurt het meest succesvol met een tweede plaats.

In 2011 scoort de zangeres, samen met Maroon 5, haar eerste nummer 1-notering. Moves Like Jagger staat drie weken bovenaan de Top 40.

Na Bionic is Lotus het vijfde studioalbum van de zangeres dat eind 2012 verschijnt. Geen van de singles bereikt de Top 40.

Als Christina Aguilera in 2013 het nummer Say Something van A Great Big World hoort tijdens So You Think You Can Dance regelt ze een opname met het duo. Het resulteert halverwege februari 2014 in de 21e notering van de zangeres in de Media Markt Top 40.


Songtekst

So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cos I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled

When a female fires back
Suddenly big talker don't know how to act
So he does what any little boy would do
Making up a few false rumors or two

That for sure is not a man to me
Slanderin' names for popularity
It's sad you only get your fame through controversy
But now it's time for me to come and give you more to say

This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout out loud!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave them proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down

Nobody can hold us down
Nobody can hold us down
Nobody can hold us down
Never can, never will

So what am I not supposed to say what I'm saying
Are you offended by the message I'm bringing
Call me whatever cos your words don't mean a thing
Guess you ain't even a man enough to handle what I sing

If you look back in history
It's a common double standard of society
The guy gets all the glory the more he can score
While the girl can do the same and yet you call her a whore

I don't understand why it's okay
The guy can get away with it & the girl gets named
All my ladies come together and make a change
Start a new beginning for us everybody sing

This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
What do we do girls?
Shout Out Loud!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down

[Lil' Kim:]
Check it - Here's something I just can't understand
If the guy have three girls then he's the man
He can either give us some head, sex a roar
If the girl do the same, then she's a whore
But the table's about to turn
I'll bet my fame on it
Cats take my ideas and put their name on it
It's airight though, you can't hold me down
I got to keep on movin'
To all my girls with a man who be tryin to mack
Do it right back to him and let that be that
You need to let him know that his game is whack
And Lil' Kim and Christina Aguilera got your back

But you're just a little boy
Think you're so cute, so coy
You must talk so big
To make up for smaller things
So you're just a little boy
All you'll do is annoy
You must talk so big
To make up for smaller things

This is for my girls...
This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout out loud!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down

This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Should out loud!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down
Spread the word, can't hold us down
