Christina Aguilera is back after years out of the new music spotlight. Aguilera spent seasons on The Voice during its early years. Though she doesn't seem fond of the show's evolution through her opinions in interviews, Aguilera held her coach position due to her extraordinary vocal abilities. That doesn't distract from the years since her last album. 2012's Lotus was Aguilera's last album; the pop star retreated into motherhood and kept out of the television or charting spotlights.
Aguilera is back in 2018 with her new album Liberation. Even from the title itself, fans can tell this is a new side of Aguilera after her time away. The first single "Accelerate" features Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz on a Kanye-produced beat. Though the single itself didn't catch fire, the follow-up songs hinted more at the vocal range that fans fell in love with. "Twice" and "Fall in Line" featuring Demi Lovato demonstrated her powerhouse voice as well as attitude. Without the distractions of overly-worked backbeats, Aguilera began to show the naked, raw talent that encompasses her album marketing strategy. Used to seeing Aguilera hidden behind makeup, Liberation shows a natural side to the star. Her shoots show a natural makeup with very little flair similar to Lady Gaga's Joanne.

"Not Dead Yet! Tour"
Phil Collins grew into fame during his time in the band Genesis when he replaced Peter Gabriel as the frontman. Afterwards, Collins' solo career took off to establish Collins as a high-selling rock artist. Besides his drummer role in Genesis, Collins' solo career includes major hits such as "In the Air Tonight" and Disney Tarzan's "You'll Be in My Heart." Collins also has an established acting career in addition to his music career. Named after his new memoir Not Dead Yet, Collins is embarking on his "Not Dead Yet! Tour" in 2018. This is his first major North American tour in twelve years, falling in line with the name of the tour and book. Collins has not released an album since 2010's Going Back, and there are no solid plans for a release this year.
