Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato's Powerhouse Duet "Fall In Line"

Easily the most anticipated track from Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album Liberation is the #MeToo empowerment anthem “Fall In Line” featuring Demi Lovato released today.

If plans hold up, we may get a live performance of the duet by the two powerhouse pop stars on this Sunday’s 2018 Billboard Music Awards.

Reminiscent of Aguilera’s “Fighter” and “Can’t Hold Us Down” and Lovato’s “Confident” and “Sorry Not Sorry,” the two divas urge women to stand up for themselves, and in doing so, find their inner strength.

From the get-go, Christina has a message for young women: “Little girls, listen closely/ 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.”

Lovato steps up in her verse as well: “Show some skin, make him want you/ Cuz god forbid you know your own way home/ Ask yourself why it matters/ Who it flatters, you’re more than flesh and bone.”

Both ladies celebrated the final product on Twitter:

The potent performances are exactly what you’d expect from the two vocal virtuosos. Their scorched earth, ad-lib approach leaves few notes untouched.

Years & Years Perform Futuristic Cabaret In "If You're Over Me" Video

The last music video for synth-pop trio Years & Years introduced us to an imaginary society where androids control the world and humans exist for the purpose of entertaining the androids.

The pop group returns to that dystopian world for the second video, “If You’re Over Me,” from their upcoming album Palo Santo.

The music video begins by explaining the role that humans in this futuristic society play. “The human cabarets of Palo Santo are attended by androids, all hoping to experience real emotion,” reads the text. “Human performers can find themselves dancing the same routines for weeks … months … years …”

In a glittering, sci-fi cabaret, out frontman Olly Alexander presents a choreographed, sexy three-way number while fellow band members Emre Turkmen and Mikey Goldsworthy present a magic trick. The talent show is meant to help the androids attempt to experience real emotion.

The song itself is an bouncy, electro-pop jam about getting straight with an ex-lover. “This is a song about trying to stay friends with an ex,” Alexander told NME. “Spoiler alert -- it doesn’t often work. In fact, in my experience, the relationship often ends up ruined.”

 “Yesterday you said I’m the one, but now you say you’re done,” Alexander sings. “Stop telling me what I need baby, if you’re over me.”
