Christina Aguilera - Christina Aguilera: Wikipedia Album Entry

Christina Aguilera is the self-titled debut album by Christina Aguilera. It was released on August 24, 1999 in the U.S. by RCA. The album became a worldwide commercial success, making Aguilera a worldwide star overnight with her breakthrough hit single "Genie in a Bottle", as well as the later singles "What a Girl Wants", "I Turn to You", and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)". "Genie in a Bottle" peaked at number one on Billboard Hot 100, making it one of the most successful airplay-only singles in history. "Genie in a Bottle" stayed number one for five weeks due to strong airplay and Physical CD sales, leading Aguilera's debut record to worldwide success. Aguilera garnered three number ones in the U.S. and three Top 10 hits in the U.K. It also featured the song she recorded a year earlier for the Mulan soundtrack, "Reflection". Her debut album helped her receive three Grammy nominations, two of which were for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance: "Genie in a Bottle" in 2000 and "What a Girl Wants" in 2001. This album also led to a nomination for Best New Artist in 2000, which she won by beating Britney Spears, Macy Gray, Kid Rock, and Susan Tedeschi. The album has sold over 9 million copies in the United States alone.
