Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Christina Aguilera’s ‘Stripped’

October 21, 2022

Christina Aguilera has released a deluxe digital edition of ‘Stripped’ to celebrate the albums 20th anniversary.

This anniversary edition features new cover art and bonus tracks that include Benny Benassi’s 2022 remix of Christina’s signature track ‘Beautiful’. You can listen to Stripped Deluxe here.

The standout track from Stripped, ‘Beautiful’ also has a new music video. The new ‘Beautiful’ video explores the song’s message of self-acceptance, self – esteem and personal empowerment through vignettes of modern young people navigating the impact of social media and technology on their private lives and interactions in the real world.

Originally released on October 22, 2002, Stripped, Christina’s fourth studio album, found her taking full creative control of her sound and style, guiding her image and career from pop teen idol to a viable and credible avatar of feminist and outsider empowerment, who still topped the charts while delivering a message of psychic liberation. The album’s second single, ‘Beautiful’, is a universal celebration of inner beauty and has become an anthem for the LGBTQ community.
