Christina Aguilera is bringingBionicback in a special way…
The 39-year-old half-Ecuadorian American Grammy-winning singer has released a new merchandise collection to celebrate her album Bionic‘s 10-year anniversary.
The five-piece collection includes t-shirts, hoodies, face masks and stemless wine glasses emblazoned with an updated version of the bright red lips Xtina wore on the album’s futuristic 2010 cover art.
The official off-white anniversary tee features the words “Christina Aguilera Bionic 10th Anniversary” written across the back of the shirt in bold and all-caps.
Released on June 4, 2010, Bionic served as Aguilera’s sixth full-length studio set, and marked a pivot into the realm of brash, sex-positive electro-pop for the singer following the big band-inspired throwback sound of 2006’s critically-acclaimed Back to Basics.
The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and was preceded by the lead single “Not Myself Tonight” and the raunchy Nicki Minaj-assisted “Woohoo.”
Bionicis also notable for being the first mainstream pop album featuring songwriting credits from a then-little-known Sia, who penned third single “You Lost Me,” album cuts “All I Need,” “I Am” and bonus track “Stronger Than Ever,” and went on to work with Aguilera again on the Burlesque soundtrack later that year.
Aguilera previously dropped a surprise for the album’s anniversary earlier this month, making bonus track “Little Dreamer“— previously available only on the iTunes deluxe edition — available for the first time on streaming platforms.)
Although the album was met with mixed reviews and underwhelming sales back in 2010, Bionichas since gained a legacy among Aguilera’s fan base as being ahead of its time, and occupies the coveted place within her discography as an underrated fan favorite release worthy of regular calls of #JusticeForBionic across social media.
