Christina Aguilera's '{Bi~ΟΠ~iC}' is released

Event details

This event begins 06/04/2010 and repeats every year forever

On this day in 2010, Christina Aguilera released her sixth studio album, {Bi~ΟΠ~iC}. It was a drastic departure from the retro, jazz-influenced sound of Back To Basics into more futuristic electronic music. Consisting of 24 tracks in total, the record combines sassy electropop bangers with personal pop / R&B ballads with some rock, new wave, dancehall and disco sprinkled in. For the record, Christina worked both with established hitmakers, as well as more underground, less-known producers and co-writers. For example, it was the first album by a big pop artist to feature songwriting from Sia and had one of the very first Nicki Minaj guest verses on a song ("Woohoo"), something that's very commonplace now.

However, due to many reasons, including a drastic change in sound compared to her previous records, accusations of chasing trends and copying Lady Gaga (spearheaded by Pigrez Perez Hilton), mediocre promotion, a change in the title, a delayed release, no tour, the era being cut short (lasting only 6 months) and Christina's personal problems, {Bi~ΟΠ~iC} underperformed and has been largely forgotten by the general public. Despite this, many consider it a solid record and it has gained newfound appreciation in recent years.
