Christina Aguilera gets all the way naked in her new music video with Kanye West

Xtina's new single is called Accelerate and Yeezy's fingerprints are all over it...

Christina Aguilera is finally releasing her first album since 2012's Lotus and she's just dropped the first single, Accelerate, along with a raunchy new film clip.

On Thursday (May 3), the artist formally known as Xtina unveiled the new song featuring 2 Chainz and Ty Dolla $ign and co-produced by sometimes rapper/full-time prolific tweeter, Kanye West.

The clip accompanying the track is steamy and, as well as involving a lot of the Dirty singer licking her lips and putting her fingers in and around her mouth, the 37-year-old chucks a Kim Kardashian and gets fully nekkid, with just some carefully placed modesty tape.

There's one moment where she's covered in some kind of clear goo, but she kinda pulls it off.

In the past few years the singer has been paying the bills with lucrative stints as a judge on talent show The Voice, but she's recently said her days on the "churning hamster wheel" are over.

This latest, stripped-back incarnation of Aguilera told Billboard magazine she felt "suffocated and restricted" during her time on the show.

"I didn't get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]. Especially as a female: You can't wear this, can't say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet."

Aguilera ultimately admits, "It became something that I didn't feel was what I had signed up for in Season 1. You realise it's not about music. It's about making good TV moments and massaging a story."

Christina also announced that her new album is called Liberation and will be out later this year.
