  • The whole idea for this duet between Christina and her fellow The Voice judge Blake Shelton came into being when Christina started a performance with a snatch of the Country star's "Hillbilly Bone." "That. Just. Happened!!!!! @TheRealXtina I'm speechless," Shelton tweeted minutes after.
    @blakeshelton Now we need to team up for a country duet Blake!! I'm down!! Let's go!" tweeted Aguilera in response.
  • Aguilera said at an album preview event that Shelton, "busted his ass to make the time" to record the heartbreaking ballad, where they sing about the pain of a break-up.
  • Aguilera also collaborated with another The Voice judge Cee-Lo Green on the Lotus track "Make The World." Aquilera spoke in an interview with Rolling Stone about teaming up with her colleagues. "I'm one that likes to collaborate. I love feeding off the creative energy, and it only makes me better," she said. "I'm on a continual path both personally and professionally. All-around, it's my goal to better myself as a person and an artist, and the show is one of those contributing factors and the guys are great friends at this point. It's fun collaborating with them at this point."
