“This isn’t my first language, but once it’s in you, it never leaves you,” Christina Aguilera tells Apple Music. Indeed, she’s no stranger to Spanish-language music, having notably released Mi Reflejo the year after her massively successful 1999 full-length debut. Now, all these years later, the pop icon makes her formal and formidable return to the Latin pop world with this six-song EP. “La Fuerza represents being a strong force of nature, having had the career I’ve had over the last couple of decades,” she says.
One need only see some of the collaborators on this project to see just how powerful she continues to be. She unites with Becky G., NICKI NICOLE, and Nathy Peluso for the empowering “Pa Mis Muchachas” and duets with reggaetón superstar Ozuna on the dance-floor-centric “Santo.” On the moving piano ballad “Somos Nada,” she reminds anyone in need of a refresher just how powerful her voice can be, no matter what language she chooses. “It’s so important to me, at this point in my career and my life, that I literally do things that energetically feel so good.”
