Christina Aguilera’s “Keeps Gettin’ Better” video was filmed in Los Angeles and directed by acclaimed feature filmmaker Peter Berg (“Hancock”). In the video, Christina travels through time and fashion in an homage to her ten year career.
“I really enjoyed making the video for ‘Keeps Gettin’ Better,’” said Christina Aguilera. “Being an artist who likes to play around with different looks, it was a lot of fun to portray various characters within the same shoot.”
“Christina is a cutting-edge superstar who has always embraced new technology,” said Tom Corson, EVP/GM RCA Music Group. “Joining forces with iLike to premiere the video for ‘Keeps Gettin’ Better’ is a very exciting part of our launch plan for her greatest hits collection.”
“Christina is one of the most successful artists of the past decade,” said Ali Partovi, CEO of iLike. “She has consistently demonstrated her enduring relevance and she continues to innovate and do things her own way. For an artist of her caliber to be the first major artist to debut a new music video on iLike is a milestone for us.”
One of two brand new tracks on her upcoming Greatest Hits album, “Keeps Gettin’ Better” is the first single and was executive-produced by Christina. The song has already entered the Top 15 at Pop radio after only 7 weeks of airplay and has also been featured on iTunes Top Songs chart.
