CHRISTINA AGUILERA, “GENIE IN A BOTTLE”
18th ANNIVERSARY TODAY! I remember reading how Christina didn’t want Genie to be her first single. She wanted a song that showcased her vocal talent more. But it seems like things worked out well 😉
Genie In A Bottle was released 18 years ago TODAY! The song received generally favorable reviews from contemporary music critics, most of whom praised the song’s lyrics and Christina Aguilera’s vocals on the track. The single achieved commercial success, peaking atop the record charts of 21 countries. In the United States, the song peaked atop the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having sold more than 1.4 million copies in the country. Globally the single sold over 7 million copies and is listed as one of the best selling singles of all time!
