From Bionic and 3 other releases

“Vanity” is a song by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, from her sixth studio album Bionic (2010). The song was written by Aguilera, Claude Kelly and Ester Dean, while production was handled by Dean. It is a dance-pop song, with elements of electropop. Lyrically, it is about loving yourself and being vain.
The song received favorable reviews from music critics; many critics praised the tongue-in-cheek lyrics, Aguilera’s vocals in the end of the song and named it a “concise and raunchy dance song”. The song charted at number 58 on the Gaon International Download Chart.

One of the co-writers of the song Claude Kelly talked about the album, saying: “Christina has an album that’s going to slap people in the face. The music still has her signature, big note vocals and emotions, but the sound is definitely more aggressive, more futuristic than the last album.” During an interview with Kimbel Bouwman for HitQuarters, Kelly revealed: “I can say that the sound of the album on a whole is very futuristic and very fun. The records I did for her are all up-tempo and fun, they’re party anthems but at the same time have underlying messages. It’s all very edgy stuff.”On May 13, 2010, the songwriter Ester Dean revealed through her Twitter that she had produced her first song, revealing that it was “Vanity”.
