Christina Aguilera just dropped her first solo music video in over four years.
The 35-year-old singer premiered a short clip for a condensed version of her latest single, “Telepathy,” online Sunday afternoon, which sees her sporting huge Moulin Rouge!-era hair, clad in knee-high boots, and belting the song’s lyrics as she lays atop a glittery pool table.
Should you be watching The Get Down?
The Get Down, Baz Luhrmann’s highly anticipated hip-hop drama and first foray into television, has just premiered its first six episodes on Netflix (the second half will debut in 2017). The streaming service hasn’t officially greenlit a second season yet but producers already have discussed what the future of Down would look like.
Christina Aguilera is getting down on the dance floor with her new song, “Telepathy,” taken from the soundtrack of the aptly-titled Baz Luhrmann Netflix series, The Get Down.
Baz Luhrmann, director of Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby, is a polarizing entertainer. Some thrill to his manic pop romanticism and heady, dizzying storytelling. Others see sound and fury, signifying nothing but a headache. He brings his brand of much muchness to television with The Get Down, and the timing couldn’t be better. Or worse? 2016 has been the year of creative indulgence as networks seek buzzy hits, empowering established and aspiring auteurs with freedom and resources. Ryan Murphy’s The People v. O.J. Simpson was a smash success.
Netflix dropped the first six episodes of the first season of musical drama The Get Down on August 12. So, we binged and recapped every episode. There’s one recap per page, so feel free to dig in and read along as you watch. We’ll be updating as we watch, so be sure to check back and refresh.
When it finally debuts Friday on Netflix, Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down – about the birth of hip-hop in late ’70s in New York – will have been in production for almost a year and a half. Consisting of only 12 episodes, that’s an incredibly long shooting time for a television series, and Down’s budget – a reported $120 million – is equally massive.
The Get Down’s soundtrack has been set for an Aug. 12 release, the same date the hip-hop drama will debut on Netflix.
Its celebrity-stacked lineup includes original music from the show’s cast (Grandmaster Flash, Jaden Smith) as well as contributions from Nas, Miguel, Christina Aguilera, Zayn, Michael Kiwanuka, Leon Bridges, and Raury. It will also feature collaborations with Grammy Award-winning producers Nile Rodgers, Malay, and Emile Haynie.
It’s almost time for The Get Down to get here: The Netflix series, created by Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann, premieres in August, and a new trailer arrived Monday morning.
One of the most highly anticipated new series of the summer is definitely The Get Down from director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge). Netflix unveiled the latest teaser for the series, which premieres its first half of episodes on Aug. 12.
