[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
[photogallerylink id=54569 align=left][lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]T.I.[/lastfm]’s been enjoying his first days of freedom after splitting his time in federal prison and a halfway house for the last 11 months. After his release last week, he has already premiered new music.
The first is a feature on the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Young Jeezy[/lastfm] track “F.A.M.E” ( No relation to the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm] tour), which features a somber T.I. promising not to go back to jail, “Another year in prison, promise this is it for me/ Trying to make it through the storm should be making history/ No feeling sorry for me, keep your pity and your sympathy/ Good or bad, take it like a man whatever meant for me,” he spits.
The second, a [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Big K.R.I.T[/lastfm] featured and produced track called “I’m Flexin” is reminiscent of the early days of the Trap King. His boastful rhymes are NSFW but once you get in the car, this is one you turn up real loud at red lights and bounce your whole body to like you should be a 90’s rap video. Or maybe that’s just me, but this upbeat, bass-heavy jam should have your party crackin’ in 2 seconds flat!
Still, T.I. raps what he knows and even in the midst of he post-prison celebrations, the topic never escapes his rhymes, “Feds want me back behind that wall, that’s the only place that I can’t go/ I’m focused, dog, and I ain’t wit’ that f-ck shit, think it sweet but it ain’t, doe/ I’m tried and true when I’m ridin’ through, I ain’t hidin’, they can just hate me/ My top is down and my pockets fat and my diamonds clearer than HD.”

With so many celebrities doing endorsements, there’s one face you can’t buy.
There is no such thing as ‘Never’ in celebrity-dom, so take this one with a grain of salt. As of right now, everyone’s favorite singer, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm], has no plans or even interest in being branded or endorsing products.
“I don’t want to see me plastered everywhere,” she said before adding that even millions couldn’t sway her, “If they offered me £10million, I’d be like ‘f*** off.'”
Whoa! That’s tough talk from the woman who sings some of the most sentimental songs on the radio right now. But at AMP, we are giving her the benefit of the doubt!
This is her latest video for her single “Someone Like You” by Adele.
