[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] has been in the pop music world since the late 90’s, rushing onto the scene with her hit songs “Genie in a Bottle” and “What A Girl Wants.” Since then, she’s made music ranging from club bangers like “Dirrty” to pop ballads like “Beautiful” and old school sounds like “Ain’t No Other Man.” So when she thinks a track is ‘unique,’ there has to be some merit in her assertion.

[photogallerylink id=109253 align=left]In fact, Christina says she knew the new “Moves Like Jagger” track by Maroon 5, which features her, was something special immediately, “The first time I heard the song, I loved it,” she said. “The song has elements from the ’60s and ’70s, yet is so current and unique,” she told reporters.

The homage tune for rocker [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] is Aguilera’s first number 1 single in 10 years. Her last reign at the top was with fellow female stars, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Missy Elliot[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lil Kim[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pink[/lastfm] in their 2001 “Lady Marmalade” remake.

This is just the beginning of the Christina’s resurgence though, along with her role as a judge on The Voice, Christina has an album on the way, reportedly due next summer. And while, “Moves Like Jagger” was released earlier this summer, the song is proving to have staying power atop the charts and may climb into the fortune of becoming a song of the Fall.

Well, we have been talking about it for so long, it’s only right to play it! “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera
