Christina Aguilera, who released her new album Bionic last month, has just released a music video for her second single titled You Lost Me. In a complete 180 shift from her over-the-top and purposely outrageous video for her first single Not Myself Tonight, You Lost Me is a pared down ballad video that focuses more on Xtina the singer rather than the Xtina the sexy minx:
Arguably the best song on the record, You Lost Me is a painful song about betrayal, loss and the sad end of a loving relationship. It is one of those songs that pretty much everyone can identify with on some level, sung in the classic Xtina style. After the jump, check out the video for You Lost Me in full …
As much as I love the upbeat, driving pop jams, I think Xtina is at her best when the focus is on her singing rather than what ever shocking images she conjures up for attention. Bionic is honestly one of my fave Xtina albums so I’m very bummed that it’s not getting the attention and recognition that it deserves … I’ve been loving the album since its release. I’m not sure if You Lost Me is the kind of song that will catch on as a huge Summer hit but I hope it is able to make more people pay attention to Xtina’s new album. There is some great stuff on there, evident from this beautiful and plaintive ballad.
