Christina Aguilera: Billboard Cover Story

Christina Aguilera hasn't felt this way in a decade. The singer is reflecting on the eventful two years leading up to the release of her fifth studio album, "Lotus," from her home in Los Angeles -- a period that heralded the commercial disappointment of her album "Bionic"; a divorce from husband Jordan Bratman; the release of her first movie, "Burlesque," and its accompanying soundtrack; her highly successful stint as a coach on NBC's "The Voice" and accompanying appearance on Maroon 5's mega-hit "Moves Like Jagger."

The last time she felt so inspired, the result was 2002's Stripped-a creative breakthrough that helped distance Aguilera from her teen-pop peers and produced memorable hits like "Beautiful," "Dirrty" and "Fighter."

 Due Nov. 13 on RCA, "Lotus" refers to the "rebirth" Aguilera underwent both personally and professionally, opting not to work with longtime songwriting partners like Linda Perry in favor of such newer collaborators as Alex Da Kid, Sia, Candice Pillay and even pop maestro Max Martin, on first single "Your Body," which hit radio and iTunes last week and bows at No. 33 on Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 chart this week.
