Taking to her social media, the 40-year-old singer chose to tease with just a few words that are likely to get any fan salivating in excitement. "Is everybody ready?" she wrote in the caption for her latest Instagram post.

Meanwhile, a very special celebrity popped in on her Instagram to leave a comment. Justin Timberlake, and longtime pal of the singer, gave her a hearty reaction to her post, saying, "Whatever this is, I’m ready AF #GreatestVoiceOfOurGeneration." Could we be seeing a clue to collaboration in the works?
'Tell me it's not April Fool's joke'
Fans are, no doubt, freaking out about the potential for new Christina Aguilera music. "Omg omg omg," said a fan while another wrote in all caps, "AHHHHH OMG I CANT BREATHE QUEEN 😭😭🤩😍☠️☠️☠️☠️," adding, "Help!!!!!" Another fan said, "OF COURSE WE ARE MAMAAAAA."
"Girl we’re actually tired of being ready," commented a fan. "We beennnnn ready since 2000," shared a fan and another added, "OMG!! Tell me this is not an april's fool joke!!"
If Xtina is working on an album, it will be her first full-length project since June 2018's 'Liberation'. Since then, she has released less than a handful of singles as a lead artist, namely 'Haunted Heart', 'Fall on Me' with A Great Big World, 'Loyal Brave True', and 2020's 'Reflection'. So, it's understandable why the latest fan hype around a comeback.
Previous teasers, announcements
This isn't the first time that Christina Aguilera has teased new music. In August 2020, the singer wrote, "Stay tuned….Friday 💋❤️," in the caption for a sun-kissed photo of her. Just three minutes after her post, Rosalía commented with an emoji, "💛." leaving fans to speculate a potential collab.
In early February 2021, Hollywood Life reported that Xtina shared a snap of herself in the studio, recording some new music.
