This Christina Aguilera x Camila Cabello Mashup Deserves Your Utmost Attention

Recommended Posts

Download worthy.

1999 meets 2017

If you're like me, you were probably expecting a whole lot more from Camila Cabello's solo pop debut, "Crying in the Club." It's in no way a bad song, especially considering today's pop climate, but it's still not a number that exactly screams inventive. Nonetheless, the Sia-penned track does deserve points for its shining interpolation of Christina Aguilera's own debut single, "Genie in a Bottle."

Early last week, some Internet genius created a mashup of the former Fifth Harmony bandmate's track with Aguilera's 1999 smash, and the results are pretty stunning. Layering Cabello's 2017 instrumental atop the latter's vocals sounds appropriate at the very top, courtesy of the pop vet's ad-libs, and the remaining four minutes after that just feels right.

While "Crying in the Club" is still gaining heavy radio airplay, the dance cut isn't faring as well on iTunes. At time of press, it was sitting at the No. 107 position. Given the song's global marketing promotion, her solid performance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards and the simultaneous release of even more new music from the budding star, the air feels a little murky. It's been less than two weeks since the release, so here's hoping that the cut is more of a slow burner for her ala her MGK-assisted "Bad Things."

If not, Cabello will surely have some push with her Major Lazer collaboration, "Know No Better," which also features Migos' Quavo and Travis Scott.

Which song do you prefer: "Crying in the Club" or "Genie in a Bottle"? Let us know in Exhale.

Everything from Sia sounds the same and so generic... she was great in the beginning, but now it's so predictable.  Stop trying to make Camelia happen too... this is just no.  I do miss this softer Christina though... it suits her so much better than the shrieking over the top version lol.
