In 1999, Aguilera rose to prominence with her Christina Aguilera (album)/self-titled debut album, which debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200/Billboard 200 and spawned the U.S. Billboard Hot 100/Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles "Genie in a Bottle", "What a Girl Wants (Christina Aguilera song)/What a Girl Wants", and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)". A year later, she released her first Spanish-language album Mi Reflejo, which sold over three million copies worldwide and the holiday album My Kind of Christmas. Displeased with her lack of input in her image and music, Aguilera assumed creative control for her fourth studio album, Stripped (Christina Aguilera album)/Stripped (2002), which draws influences from a variety of music genre/genres including soul music/soul, hip hop music/hip hop, Latin music (genre)/Latin, and rock music/rock. The album spawned the top-ten singles "Dirrty" and "Beautiful (Christina Aguilera song)/Beautiful", and earned a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Beautiful".If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous musicians!
