GoldLink Joins Christina Aguilera on New Song “Like I Do”
Christina Aguilera taps yet another rapper, GoldLink, to join her on the new single, "Like I Do," the latest release from her comeback album Liberation, which will be released on June 15.
The sunny number opens with the D.C. spitter serving church-y romantic wordplay over Soulection-style synths. "Having you is heaven/Talk to the reverend," GoldLink opens, and a few bars later, "All that little bullet in your trunk/Make a man wanna sing 'Hallelujah' when it jump." Aguilera enters to serenade a lover with the promise of her sexual prowess, balancing soulful vocal runs with spurts of rap phrasing.
The track is Aguilera's fourth drop from her project, and the second to infuse hip-hop into the mix. The singer released Liberation's lead single, "Accelerate," featuring 2 Chainz and Ty Dolla $ign, and produced by Kanye West, in May.
Aguilera also shared the album's tracklist today (June 7), as well as dates for her upcoming tour, which kicks off in September and features Big Boi as an opener. In addition to Ty, Tity Boi and GoldLink, Liberation also features Demi Lovato, who joins Aguilera on the single "Fall In Line."
GoldLink's inclusion on the project follows a relatively quiet year for the "Crew" rapper so far in 2018. In Februrary, he jumped on a remix to Diplo's song "Get It Right," but has otherwise laid low. The rhymer spoke about his come-up in an interview with XXL in May.
