Christina Aguilera dropped the single “Accelerate” on Thursday marking the first time she has released new music in six years.

The song features Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz and was produced by Kanye West. Aguilera debuted the song along with a brand new music video.

“Accelerate” is the first single from her new album “Liberation.” The album will feature 15 tracks and will be released on June 15.

Since taking a break from making music, Aguilera was a judge on “The Voice” alongside CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. In an interview with Billboard, Aguilera says she will never return to the show because filming made her feel  “suffocated and restricted.”

“I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]. Especially as a female: You can’t wear this, can’t say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet,” Aguilera says.

She adds: “It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in Season 1. You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.”

Watch the music video for “Accelerate” below.
