Target scores Aguilera hits album exclusive
By Katie Hasty
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Target and Target.com (www.target.com/) will be the sole retailers to carry Christina Aguilera's first greatest hits collection, "Keeps Gettin' Better - A Decade of Hits," due November 11.
The RCA Records set will include a pair of new songs, "Dynamite" and the title track, as well as re-recorded versions of her prior hits "Genie in a Bottle" and "Beautiful."
Fans will receive a free download of "Keeps Gettin' Better" when they pre-order the CD beginning September 30 via target.com/music. The track goes to top 40 radio on September 22.
Aguilera will perform the title track at the MTV Video Music Awards in Hollywood on Sunday, her first televised performance since giving birth to a baby boy in January.
She told reporters on Thursday that she will unveil a new, futuristic look contrasting with the vintage-glam style of her previous album, 2006's "Back to Basics."
The hits collection will contain all four of the pop star's No. 1 hits: "Genie," "Come on Over (All I Want Is You)," "What a Girl Wants" and "Lady Marmalade," her collaboration with Lil' Kim, Mya and Pink on a remake of the LaBelle classic.
Aguilera joins Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, the Jonas Brothers and John Legend as artists who've released music exclusively through Target in recent years.
Aguilera is at work on the follow-up to her 2006 album "Back to Basics," but no release date has yet been announced.
