Land   Verenigde Staten

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

Y'all small tuna fish, I'm one big catch
(This is a Shark Tale exclusive)
Y'all small tuna fish, I'm one big catch
(Here we go again)
Y'all small tuna fish, I'm one big catch
(Say what, say what, yeah)
Y'all small tuna fish, I'm one big catch

Ooh, do do do do do do do
Car wash, car wash
Ooh, do do do do do do do
Car wash, car wash

(Yeah, let's drop it on 'em like this)

Ooh, do do do do do do, na na na ah, ooh
Ooh, do do do do do do, na na na ah, ooh

You might not ever get rich, ha
Let me tell you it's better than digging a ditch
There ain't no telling who you might meet
A movie star or maybe a common thief

Working at the car wash (oh oh, yeah yeah)
At the car wash, yeah (ooh, yeah yeah)
At the car wash (sing it with me now)
Working at the car wash, yeah

(Oh, oh)

Come summer the work gets kind of hard
This ain't no place to be if you're planning on being a star
Let me tell you it's always cool
And the boss don't mind sometimes if you're acting like a fool

Working at the car wash (oh oh, yeah yeah)
At the car wash, yeah (ooh ooh ooh)
At the car wash (ow said, now come and work it with me now, yeah)
Working at the car wash, yeah

Said, said, said, sing

(Work and work)
Well those cars never stop coming
(Work and work)
Keep those rags and machines humming
(Work and work)
My fingers to the bone
(Work and work)
Keep on and can't wait till it's time to go home

Hey, get your car washed today
Fill up and you don't have to pay
Hey, get your car washed today
Fill it up, right away

[Missy Elliott:]
Work at the, car wash
Sharks in the water make they jaws lock
When I swim through the grim, I'm too hot
Y'all can make y'all bets
Y'all small tuna fish, I'm one big catch
Shark slayer, bow down playa
'Cause this right here will be your worst nightmare (nightmare)
Work that, work that, pop back, hurt that
Turn this up and bang it all up in the surface

(Work and work)
9 to 5 I got to keep that fat stack coming
(Work and work)
No matter how big the shark is, the right keep running
(Work and work)
Washing cars ain't no place to be a superstar man
(Work and work)
That's why I work, and work

Working at the car wash (ohhh, yeah)
At the car wash, yeah (come on work, baby work it, say now)
At the car wash (ahh)
Working at the car wash, yeah

So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

Ooh, do do do do do do, na na na ah, ooh
(Now keep it coming)
Ooh, do do do do do do (woo, so), na na na ah, ooh
(You may not ever get rich, but hey)

Hey, get your car washed today (hey)
Hey, get your car washed today
Hey, get your car washed today (phenomenal hit)
