Xtina’s P!nk Collab Didn’t Make ‘Liberation,’ But She Wants To Release It Anyway
Christina Aguilera says P!nk “sounds amazing on the record.”
Christina Aguilera gushes over P!nk.
UPDATE // JUNE 14:
Fighters had reason to believe unknown artist XNDA, featured on Liberation track, Pipe, was a pseudonym for P!nk, but Legend X confirms in a new interview with Paper that it is not in fact the Beautiful Trauma singer. She actually wouldn’t reveal who XNDA is, but had some pretty candy-coated compliments for P!nk.
“I would love to! And I’m dying for everyone to find out because they’re definitely multi-talented and I think it will take a lot of people by surprise,” X says about XNDA. “I have been sworn to secrecy so I can’t say anything, but they’ve got a great voice, yes.”
As for the P!nk song… will it ever see the light of day?
“I would love for it to, yeah,” she says. “There’s a great song we did together. And there’s a few songs that didn’t see the light of day on this particular record, but are in my back pocket. I’d definitely like to release that song in a really fun, cool, collaborative way. She’s just such a great artist and has grown into be such a strong force for women and I think she’s awesome. And she sounds amazing on the record.”
We’re going to need receipts.
Liberation drops Friday, June 15.
EARLIER // MAY 21:
Xtina’s new album features Keida & Shenseea (“Right Moves”), Goldlink (“Like I Do,” reportedly produced by Anderson .Paak), Demi Lovato (“Fall In Line”), Ty Dolla $ign & 2 Chainz (“Accelerate) and an unknown artist who goes by the name XNDA on a track titled “Pipe.”
Fighters are under the impression it’s an alias for P!nk. The Beautiful Trauma singer spilled the beans last year she and Legend X linked up in the studio.
“We did a duet for her album and I don’t know when it’s coming out but it’s amazing,” P!nk told The Sun at the time. “We did it two years ago so I don’t remember the title, but she’s incredible.”
It’s very plausible Xtina is keeping the collab a surprise because of this. I’m choosing to believe that. Perhaps XNDA stands for X (Xtina) and NDA (the non-disclosure agreement that was obviously broken)?
