Album: Liberation (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This sexy, hip-hop influenced track has a double meaning. Not only does it reference Aguilera's Olympian pipes, it also acts as a sexual metaphor, whereby the singer warns her man that she gets "loud when you put that pipe down." Aguilera commented on the song's release:

    "Had so much fun exploring different textures and tones in my voice stylistically. Tapping into a certain kind of flow and flirtation. This song is both wordplay and foreplay."
  • In late 2015, the British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton gave a film crew from CBS a tour of his private studio. During the accompanying video, the motor racing star declared that his passion to pursue music was "very serious." This song finds Hamilton making his singing debut, under the pseudonym of XNDA, on the third verse as he assures Aguilera that he knows how to get a girl aroused in bed.
