With its Nov. 24 release date fast approaching, "Burlesque" is starting to lay the groundwork for what it hopes will be a big opening weekend — and when a movie is so deeply rooted in music, that includes, well, releasing some music.
Enter Christina Aguilera's new single, "Express," which (not surprisingly) celebrates unbridled sexuality.
As relayed by Vulture, the lyrics begin with Aguilera belting, "E-X-P-R-E-S-S. Love. Sex. Ladies no regrets." That pretty much captures the rest of the song as well.
"Burlesque" tells the story of a small-town girl (Aguilera) who goes to Los Angeles and comes into her own in a neo-burlesque club run by a former dancer (Cher).
The film was written and directed by Steven Antin, who is perhaps best known for producing the 2008 TV show "Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious." If that's not an indication of the tone of this movie, we don't know what is.
