Christina Aguilera certainly brought the memes with the Lotus era, if not the sales: #BuyLotusOniTunes is still iconic, as is the GIF from this very song’s music video of her enthusiastically clicking a PC mouse.

But despite seeing a big drop in commercial performance from her heyday, Your Body remains a truly enormous banger; Aguilera passionately howling for a good dicking over roaring electropop production from Max Martin and Shellback. That middle-8? WHEW!!!!
