What a Girl Wants was the second single released from Christina Aguilera’s 1999 eponymous debut album. The first single Genie in a Bottle was a massive hit worldwide, topping the Hot 100 chart in the US, and What a Girl Wants followed suit by topping the Hot 100 chart as well.
“The song was described as a pop and R&B track and had similarities to “Genie in a Bottle”. It received positive reviews from music critics, who described it as a “light” song and compared Aguilera’s vocals on the track to those of Mariah Carey.” – via Christina Aguilera’s Wikipedia page.
She followed up What a Girl Wants with two more singles from the album. I Turn to You peaked at number three on the Hot 100 and Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You) hit number one on the Hot 100 chart in 2000.
