Christina Aguilera shared on social media, “As a mother, I want to be the strongest, healthiest version of myself for my children. I wrote No Es Que Te Extrañe to come full circle, accept, forgive and be set free. Forgiveness begins when heartache turns into freedom.🕯”
The album is her multi-part Spanish-language album. She said of Spanish, “My father is from Ecuador and we lived for a long time with my grandparents (who are from Quito), so Spanish was constantly spoken. I will always appreciate that side of my family and the culture they instilled in me.”
- Christina Aguilera told Los Angeles Times about the album, “It was about time! I had wanted to do it for a long time, but I am happy to be doing it now and not before, because my current perspective comes from a much deeper place, after everything that has happened in my career, after raising my children and being a mother, having made peace with my past and my childhood and many other circumstances that result in this being the most appropriate and most relevant time for something like this.”
She continued, “I like that my children will be able to see that their mother is celebrating something with which I do not feel completely comfortable, because it is not my first language, but it is an important part of my past, of our legacy. I wasn't as exposed to Spanish after my parents got divorced, but every time I do something Latino-related, it feels great.”
She said, “I spent a month in Miami, in February, immersed in the musicality that was around me, alongside beautiful artists and singers, and I was fascinated by the talent, energy and joy of everyone in this project. I am so proud of them, so proud of this labor of love that we have created.”
