Xtina answers ‘Bionic’ Q&A - goes in depth!

Davian

I’m so excited!! A few weeks ago Xtina asked her fans on Twitter and Instagram to ask her questions about her album {Bi~ΟΠ~iC} to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary. She FINALLY answered a lot of them and she went in depth on how the album came about! She also mentioned a lot of collaborators like Sia, M.I.A., Nicki Minaj and Peaches and also shined some light on deep cuts like Monday Morning and Birds of Prey. It’s definitely a fun read:heart:
I myself asked a lot of questions too and I noticed some that I asked too...:ally:

It’s all on her Instagram Stories but I took screenshots and pasted them in the spoilers so everyone here has an easier time reading it!:heart:

That's it! I loved reading everything and I'm so happy she took the time to answer so many questions in depth!:bradley: I'm also so happy that she mentioned my personal favourite song Monday Morning and gave attention to the fan favourite Birds of Prey:diane: You can tell she is really proud of the album! I love it when artists talk this passionate about their work, no matter how well it did on the charts or what critics thought of it.:applause:

Yesss, she gave it the justice it deserves:applause: Unlike the 20th anniversary of her debut album, which was supposed to receive an anniversary edition, but she completely forgot about it (after it was postponed) and we are almost a year further:selena:

When she said Bionic was ahead of its time, could this now be the time that everyone finally understands it?!

Mr S

I just quickly skimmed through the album and it's actually not bad at all. Not as bad as I remember it being anyway. It could use some editing to trim it down a bit, but songs like Birds of Prey and Elastic Love have some killer productions.

I simply don't see how Bionic was ahead of its time. The electronic sound was already in full force in pop music, M.I.A., Sia, Le Tigre, Ladytron and Peaches were all pretty much established indie artists. Nicki Minaj was also known as the upcoming new hot thing in rap music. 

To me there are some very clear highlights on that album, Bionic, Elastic Love, Lift Me Up, You Lost Me, Birds Of Prey and Monday Morning are all great songs. But the rest falls flat for me. Back then I used to love this album but listening back the songs don't hold up, sorry. Specially when Stripped and Back to Basics are pretty much timeless.

This was a great read. She’s so eloquent and inteligent. I love Bionic, it’s my favorite album from her. Not Myself Tonight’s music video made me see a true pop DIVA in action.
