[center]You teased new music last fall. What's the latest with that?
I’ve been loosely working on it the last couple of years. But I really started toward the middle and end of last year to really buckle down and meet with new collaborators and producers, people I want to work with and people I have never worked with before. I can’t say much about it yet because I want to wait until it’s good and ready. I am working on it and will be ready when it can be the authentic masterpiece that it deserves to be. But later this year, most likely.

Her manager said she was nearly done with it September 2015 .. Who knows what's happening. Knowing Christina, she's probably scrapping stuff, adding stuff, looking for new stuff.

This album is going to slay. The only thing that's missing so far is a concept - I miss her concept albums - they have been her best and the ones she's seemed the most passionate about (Stripped, B2B, Bionic . . . )

It'd be sooooo awesome if the album turns out to be a total gem. Ideally, the best of her career so far! My recent obsession with her would just be multiplied by a billion times....then again, better that it won't be that good, otherwise I'll refuse studying, working and eating :D

I'm keeping an open mind....but ideally, I'd want it to be R'n'B, Soul and Blues and with very powerful lyrics and showcasing different aspects to her words, from hitting unsuspected notes to holding a note for the longest time to rawness to whispers.

Also, I'd love it if in some years she gave electronica another shot and this time make it the most amazing album ever.

Hope she releases her Spanish album to quench our thirst for new music first, then the English one after the Grammy cutoff date. This way we get new music, keep the hype going and she won't have to compete with Adele for Grammy 2017.

@Bionic Dreamer good thinking! You should be her manager :D that's a solid strategy; instead of doing what she did with her debut, that the English version came first (which was right for the time so she could be known) this time around whetting our apetites in Castilian sounds like a good move and of course, avoiding Adele. Then again, it'd be so ace if they faced each other and our girl came out the victor (a boxing match a la dirrty, while at it?).

I don't think she should avoid Grammy 2017 deadline because of Adele. Next year it will be Gaga, Beynce, new Sam Smith or whatever. You never know. She never received that AOTY, SOTY or ROTY nominations, and some shitty basic songs and albums did. Yet she can slay those "best pop vocal" and "best duo/group" categories despite of Adele.
