Christina Aguilera is definitely the best artist of our generation. I am going to list some facts that make her the best. First off she has the voice of a angel beating the likes of Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and especially Britney Spears. Her first album sold 16 million worldwide and won numerous awards and a Grammy. Plus she had more meaningful songs like ‘Reflection’ and ‘I Turn to You’.
Britney might of outsold Christina, but she definitely did not match Christina’s talent and she did not win a Grammy. Plus Christina was credited by tons of critics as being the better artist. She also broke out of the pop craze by producing a Spanish album that sold extremely well in Latin America and won her a second Grammy. Britney did not even win one.
She also produced a Christmas record that also sold extremely well and praised by critics. Her next awesome career move was lending her spectacular voice to the ‘Lady Moulan’ soundtrack that went to number one in 50 countries a feat that Britney has never done. The song also won a Grammy and is one of the best songs off a soundtrack in history.
Christina has also performed with many legends, unlike Britney who has only performed with Madonna, who Christina also performed with. The list of artists are Patti Labelle Brian Mcknight and Herbie Hancock.
Christina’s next successful career move was ‘Stripped’. It went on to sell 12 million copies worldwide and won her another Grammy! Off that album she sold more records then any other woman in 2003 something Britney has never done. On ‘Stripped’ were some of the greatest songs I have ever heard like ‘Beautiful’, ‘Fighter’, ‘Voice Within’, ‘Impossible’, ‘I’m OK’, and ‘Keep Singing My Song’. Not even the haters can say anything bad about these songs! They are great and they won praise from even the hardest of critics like Simon Cowell who praised it as being the best pop album that he had ever heard.
The album also gave her ton of publicity and she got the titles of Woman of the Year and Maxims hottest woman of the year! Her ‘Stripped’ tour was also one of the best grossing tours of 2003.
My next point is Christina’s advertising deals that definitely beat out any of Christina’s other rivals. Her most amazing was definitely the Coke deal that she made $70 million off. After that she she did everything from Mercedes to Sketchers to her newest which is Pepsi. With all of this combined she has earned over 100 million dollars. Plus another 60 million from album sales and concerts. That is definitely more money then Britney’s 100 million!
In the end Christina might have not sold as many albums but definitely has won more awards (Christina’s 94 to Britney’s 74) and she has earned more money. So who is the best now?
