Christina Aguilera made her mark at the 2022 Latin Grammy Awards, bagging the much-coveted golden gramophone for ‘Traditional Pop Vocal Album’. The Grammy for the pop singer has come after a long 21 years, and most of her fans had lost hope. But now that the queen has come out with a Latin album after over 2 decades, she bagged the award. The 41-year-old released her first Latin album, Mi Reflejo back in 2000 which won the Latin Grammy for Female Pop Vocal Album, and now 2022 saw the release of Aguilera, the singer’s second Latin album.

Christina Aguilera was quite a sight on 18th November, the night of the Latin Grammys, where first she stunned all with her statement violet gown on the red carpet. And then she went on to give a fiery performance on stage, performing a duet, Cuando Me Dé la Gana with Christian Nodal, during which she again slayed in her black bustier bodysuit and her signature Y2K hair trend, one that she is known to have basically invented. However, the highlight of the night was undoubtedly her winning a Grammy herself for ‘Traditional Pop Vocal Album’ for Aguilera.

This is the Beautiful singer’s 7th Grammy win of all time and the most marvelous fact is that it has made her the youngest celebrity to have won a Grammy for four different decades: 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s.

Fans were quite delighted with the singer’s win who has also been named, “Voice of a Generation”. The Latin Music industry is generally ruled by the likes of Shakira, who has the second-highest Latin Grammy wins among female artists, having won an impressive 12 awards. However, this year Shakira couldn’t manage to win a single award despite her single Te Felicito being quite a hit. And Aguilera rose like a phoenix and the Xtina fandom could not be happier.

Not every artist can or has achieved what Aguilera did and her sprawling and iconic career continues still.
