Christina kicked off the Liberation era with a radio-friendly, pop x hip-hop-flavored song titled “Accelerate,” featuring 2 Chainz and Ty Dolla $ign. It didn’t connect to the masses the way her lead single should have, so the singer is switching things up.

For this next release, Xtina dives into herself. The song is titled “Twice,” a soul searching ballad that finds the pop star reflecting on a love that nearly destroyed her.

“Sometimes I wonder what is the meaning of this life,” she sings in the intro a cappella-style. “I found the price of love and lost my mind / I will forgive them all of my wrongs and my rights / I’d do it all again and won’t think twice.”

When the piano melody settles in, Christina croons a couple of crucial questions:

“Are you devil? Are you angel? / Am I heaven? Am I hell? I can barely find the proof to save myself,” she sings. “Are you water? Are you fire? / Are you filthy? Are you pure? / Oh, I thought by now I’d know / But I’m not sure.”

I’m crying.

There’s real emotion in “Twice,” and I get that her big comeback song needed to be something upbeat, but this is the side of Christina Fighters want to get to know.

The track is available to stream beginning at midnight your time (or 9 p.m. PST):
