May 4th, 2018, 11:41 amI think the first thing that plays (around 0.32) is either the Liberation Intro or Searching for Maria. It sounds like an Overture and gives me Sound of Music.
Around 1.05 I think it's either Like I Do or Sick of Sittin'. Mainly because it sounds like an Anderson.Paak production.
Around 2.00 it sounds like it could be Maria from the description
2.31, definitely FIL the final version. I can't at me getting ready to stan, but the instrumental sounds hot.
2.59, probably the other Anderson.Paak.
Bet you whatever she's singing is Sick of Sittin'.
Back to Maria in the end.
This needs it’s own speculation thread, but here are my preliminary thoughts:
0.01 to 0.20 are the lyrics for Maria or Searching for Maria (with the instrumental from Maria or Searching for Maria playing all the way till 0.58). Actually, could it just be the Searching for Maria lyrics. Has anyone confirmed whether it’s a full song? If not, Searching for Maria could be a spoken track and we have actually already heard it at the beginning of this song and also at the end.
From about 1 min to about 1.45 mins the instrumental is probably linked to what she’s saying about being an old lady in a young body and being comfortable with herself - I’m thinking it could actually be Liberation cos she’s embracing her true self. It could also be Like I Do.
1.45 to 2.45 (the instrumentals with the strings actually sound like the same key as fall in line which we know comes in at about 2.30). And this whole segment was about her mom’s struggles and letting go of the mask, the face - it sounds like Fall in Line. But maybe it’s two different songs and the first part of the instrumental is like the ending of Dreamers which will lead into Fall in Line, like the Walkaway/Fighter transition.
2.45 to 3.15 is all about her being a woman and being a pornstar in her previous life. And you have that Vibey sexy beat in the background. This is this album’s NMT or GMGY - so maybe Twice? (Like second life). Or it could be Like I Do (Like how I enjoy the xxx).
3.15. Omg the acapella is freaking out of this world. I agree. It’s prob sick of sitting. About how she did not know that it would cost her soul, nothing is free, and how she wants to breathe etc (the Voice brought in the dough but she felt trapped etc).
Back to the end. Omg it’s Maria or Searching for Maria. It’s going to be so epic. I can freakin see why she said that this is her favourite song. It’s cos it’s her.
We are finally seeing this woman bear her true self to us. First time in such a long while (probably since stripped). She’s not wearing a mask, not playing a part. Echoing what someone else said upthread: she’s not Baby Jane, not the Bionic Woman who wears different hats, not an unbreakable flower. She’s herself - Christina Maria
Aguilera. This bitch isn’t playing.
It’s a freakin privilege. I can’t. I’m obsessed with accelerate but I think I am going to love the entire album from start to finish. Like stripped. The wait has been worth it. If she’s going to give us inspired music, she can take as long a break as she wants.
