By Nikita Chee Cue female-power ballad of the year: “Fall in Line”, by Aguilera and Lovato: soul sisters and now singing duo! “Fall in Line”, is the third song on Xtina’s new album, “Liberation”, and has been the most highly anticipated release featuring Demi Lovato. The song is aimed at young females emerging into the world.
Like a sister-to-sister heart to- heart chat, we are told from the first verse, “Little girls, listen closely, ‘cause no one told me…but you deserve to know. That in this world, you are not beholden…You do not owe them… Your body and your soul”. From its un-syncopated beginning, we are questioning what this will be about.
Then in comes Aguilera with her unmistakable power-vocals; vocals that were destined to initiate 21st-century warrior princesses that embrace their strength in womanhood. The music itself has a gospel-r ‘n’ b groove with a full brass instrumental sound. As the title suggests, the women singing want the listener to know that they don’t have to fall in line with what the world says they have to be, but that they can think for themselves and are precious at the core
