Christina Aguilera to leave The Voice Season 4; Announces new album and single

Looks like Team XTina won’t be around for season 4.

During an nterview with Billboard Magazine, Christina opened up about her role on the NBC singing competition. The show, “kept me away from my heart, which is creating my own music. It’s been a joy to be a part of other people’s journey, to be able to inspire and be a part of new singers coming up in this business … but I was staring to get really worried and concerned that I wouldn’t have the time to go and be an artist again,” Aguilera said.

Christina says that it will most likely be a one season hiatus, “I’ll probably be back. I just need to do my thing for a minute then I can come back and be that much better of a coach,” she says. “I just need a second to get back to me.”

New music from Christina is scheduled to drop next week with a new album following later this fall.
