"Candyman" Video Review

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Christina Aguilera ever since she came on the scene. I have always put her in the same category as Mariah Carey: a manufactured pop star (sometimes pretending to be r&b by hiring a slew of rappers) with a set of vocal pipes, but absolutely nothing else to offer. That changed a little bit with “Beautiful,” one of the best songs this decade. Still, Christina continued to over sing the most simple songs and actually ruined most of them.

2006’s Back to Basics earned Christina a lot of credibility, both from me and other critics. Her attempt at recreating the early sounds of the 20th Century, while also sounding completely fresh, was a major success. The album’s first single, “Ain’t No Other Man,” rushed into the top 10 and stayed there for weeks. The follow-up single, “Hurt,” was a hit as well. Just recently, Christina Aguilera has released one of the best, most addicting singles ever to hit the planet, “Candyman.”

This song, inspired by The Andrew Sisters’ “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” screams “play me” to even the most formulatic radio stations. She sings: "There's nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm/ He's a one stop shop, makes the panties drop/ He's a sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man/A sweet talkin' sugar coated candy man." The lyrics are cheesy and simple, but that’s the whole point to the song! It’s one of those brainless songs that you can’t get out of your head no matter what. It will even appear in your dreams if you try to forget about it.

Unlike other pop/r&b female starlets, Christina Aguilera doesn’t need to disguise her lack of musical talent anymore by calling Rent-a-Rapper, wearing skimpy outfits that don’t fit her body, hiring internet gossip/entertainment columnists to hype her music, and deep discounting her singles to 1/5th the price of others just so they can chart. She’s a true musical talent who appears to be moving in the right direction.
