Genie in a Bottle

Yet another ex-Mouseketeer scampers down the Britney-pop path with a suggestive synth ditty and a husky voice well beyond her 18 years. While the music flutters R&B lite, the moan-sampled chorus of Christina Aguilera’s ”Genie in a Bottle” is uncomfortably adult: ”I’m a genie in a bottle/Ya gotta rub me the right way, honey.” Gulp! Just like Spears’ breathy hits, this is a sinfully sweet confection best filed under No, No, Annette. B+
