Christina Aguilera's new song, 'You Lost Me,' perfectly captures one of the most difficult experiences young lovers have to go through -- heartbreak. After a somber orchestral opening, Aguilera states declaratively, "I am done / Smoking gun," before admitting, "We've lost it all."
Eventually, though, the ballad's tone begins to brighten up, as Aguilera looks back on what was -- even if it ended in infidelity. By the end of the track, Aguilera's voice and her music crescendos dramatically, as we all witness a painful, but necessary catharsis.
'You Lost Me' is the latest single off of Christina Aguilera's new album 'Bionic,' released on June 8, and follows her single, 'WooHoo.' As Aguilera has stated before, 'Bionic' is something of a futuristic album, featuring an eclectic mix of R&B, pop, and ballads. As cutting edge as the album may be, though, Aguilera's new song proves that sometimes, we all need to look back, before moving on.
