Christina Aguilera Not Fazed by Low Sales of ‘Your Body’

Christina Aguilera was poised for a big comeback with her latest single, ‘Your Body’ — which, for the record, we love. However, sales for the song have been slow, and as a result, its charting hasn’t been the greatest. Still, ‘The Voice‘ coach isn’t bothered by it one bit.

“I’ve already put out a greatest hits record, so I’ve been in this business for a while, and … I’m a risk taker, that’s just who I am at heart,” Aguilera told MTV. “It’s who I can’t help but be. It’s who I always am in nature, as a person and as an artist. And with that comes hurdles and certain areas where people aren’t going to get it and understand it artistically; sometimes it will go over their heads and it will not be as commercially successful.”

While we’re not sure if ‘Your Body’ necessarily went over anyone’s head — it’s a pretty straightforward song, to say the least — it wasn’t, as Aguilera predicted, very commercially successful so far. The track peaked at No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 before plummeting to No. 64. To be fair, she faced some pretty stiff competition, with chart queens Kesha, Taylor Swift and Rihanna also releasing singles recently and possibly stealing some of XTina’s thunder.

“[And] personally, I’m someone that’s always growing and evolving,” she continued, “And at this point of my life, I feel that I’ve reached a place where I’m completely embracing everything about who I am, and I’m having more of an understanding of myself.”

Fair enough, but let’s hope that ‘Lotus’ fares better than ‘Bionic’ did!
