Single Review: Christina Aguilera “Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)”

Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)
Album: Christina Aguilera
Year: 2000

With Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You), Aguilera’s image changed slightly. She became known as a diva. Reports were in US Weekly was claiming she took back food and having hissy fits. She also sexed up her image. In the video her then-boyfriend pulls the zipper of her top down, revealing her bra.

However, that aside, the image change meant an assertive Aguilera. She redid the vocal arrangements for the song and wanted the remix. By doing so, she brought energy and spice to an otherwise “little kiddish” song. She’s playful and flirty while singing, “I know you know/So baby don’t pretend/you won’t keep me guessin’/if ya will or if ya won’t.” Then during the rap, she’s in control by asking; “don’t you wanna be the one tonight?” Unlike Britney, she’s not in denial that she can be sexual and that it can be enjoyed. Christina Aguilera is unashamed and it’s refreshing to hear.
