  1. Beautiful

    "Beautiful" is a song recorded by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, taken from her fourth studio album Stripped. It was written and produced solely by Linda Perry. Following the release of "Dirrty" in September 2002, which failed to gain chart success in the United States, RCA Records released the song to contemporary hit and rhythmic radio in the United States on November 16, 2002, as the album's second single. At first, Linda Perry wanted to keep "Beautiful" for her own career, but later gave it to Aguilera after hearing Aguilera's performance of the track. The song is a piano-driven pop ballad which tells the story of a woman who suffers from low self-esteem and insecurities, and encourages individuals not to let outside opinions affect their confidence. Upon its release, "Beautiful" received generally acclaim from music critics, who praised her vocals on the song and considered it an outstanding track on Stripped as well as ranking the single among Aguilera's strongest materials. It won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2004 ceremony, and was also nominated for Song of the Year there. By late 2009, "Beautiful" was honored to be one of the greatest pop songs of the 2000s by Rolling Stone and VH1. Commercially, the single was a major hit, peaking at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, having sold estimately 1.2 million copies there alone as of September 2012. The single also gained commercial success around the world, peaking at number one on the singles chart of Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, as well as achieving certifications in Australia and New Zealand.
