After some time away, Christina Aguilera is fully back in music mode: She’s readying Liberation, her first album since 2012’s Lotus, and she’s getting set to head out on her first tour in five years. Even based just on the single “Accelerate,” we know that she’s pulling in some big names for her new album: The song features Ty Dolla Sign and 2 Chainz, as well as production from Kanye West and Mike Dean. Now she’s added Demi Lovato to her list of collaborators, as she just shared the new collaborative single, “Fall In Line.”
Aguilera says that the bombastic, bass-heavy ballad is about being unafraid to be yourself and take a stand, writing on Twitter, “To anyone who’s ever felt silenced and repressed, the truth seekers and bold thinkers… may you liberate your voice and break the mold, never back down, and never fall in line.”
Aguilera and Lovato certainly seem excited to have had the opportunity to work together: Lovato shared a photo of the pair and tweeted, “BUCKET LIST ITEM 1 […] I hope you love this song as much as I do. It’s such an honor to lend my voice to this anthem for women with one of the most inspiring individuals I’ve ever met.” Aguilera responded, “I believe our paths were destined to cross and I’m so proud to come together from the pasts we’ve overcome; to the strong women we are today! You’re truly a GEM, I have immense love and respect for you! You are an inspiration for future young girls of your generation. Beautiful work!”
