Spanish singer Pablo López praises Xtina and is writing a song for her according to this Esquire interview. Google Translates fail big time. What I gathered from the interview is that Pablo says Christina has great vocal agility.

Quote

 

Big divas sing with emotion and reaching certain notes comes first, and technique second. That's why they often can't sing in the same tone after a decade or two. But when it comes to Christina he says her voice is still in incredible shape, and he calls her one of the greatest artists of this generation. 

He also says he's not sure about recording a song for her, cuz these things often don't end up happenning/finished (?), but he says it's still better to do it, than to miss out. So he's writing a song for her, because she asked him to.

 

 

Spoiler

A los fans de las grandes divas les (nos) encanta analizar en qué momentos de sus carreras son capaces de llegar a las notas altas y cuándo no.
Si no te importa vamos a hablar más de este tema. Yo lo llamo a esto “alegres y conscientes divagar”, que lo hago mucho en mi casa: realmente no sabemos muy bien de qué estamos hablando, pero se sacan conclusiones que serán casi científicas. Mi proceso es al revés que el de las divas. Primero viene el arrebato y después la técnica. En las grandes divas, que lo que hacen es preciosismo y espectacularidad absolutos, llevar al extremo tonalidades, se vuelve muy difícil llevarlo al directo. Porque están entrenadas para llegar a ese punto en un momento concreto. Es como si Valdano intentara ahora jugar con la selección argentina. Sin embargo, Aretha Franklin se murió cantando en los mismos tonos, sin bajarlos. ¿Por qué? Porque viene del arrebato. Es mi teoría que acabo de desarrollar ahora mismo, estoy en plan brainstorming. (Canta una parte de Think) Nunca se bajó de ahí. Sin embargo, si haces (lanza el Hero de Mariah Carey, con despliegue de gorgoritos), cuando tienes diez años más, es que es muy difícil ejecutar la misma técnica. Por cierto, y esto que no salga de aquí, estoy escribiendo una canción para Christina Aguilera, porque lo pidió. No sé si deberías ponerlo porque estas cosas después no salen… Pero bueno mejor sí, si lo pones a lo mejor se anima más.

 

Pues lo pongo, claro que lo pongo.
En el caso de Christina Aguilera, más que la altura de tonos es la velocidad que tiene para cambiarlos. Yo creo que eso se tiene que perder, ¿no?

Ella está en plena forma, ha pasado por épocas chungas pero, para mí, es la mejor intérprete en directo. Mírate el vídeo del funeral-tributo de James Brown, para mí es top 1 de una diva en vivo.

Secretaria, apunta (le dice con cachondeo a su asistente, que está presente en la sala). Los artistas antiguos tipo Raphael, cuando estoy con ellos lo veo, tienen secretaria o secretario. Marta, me encantaría que fueras mi secretaria (risas). Oye pues eso que dices va a ser mi motivación, mi editor te lo va a agradecer, que lleva tiempo persiguiéndome con lo de Christina. Pero es que tengo otra diva por delante…

Not a native speaker, but lemme give it a try. jj2

From what I understand he's talking about how for big divas singing with emotion and reaching certain notes comes first, and technique second. That's why they often can't sing in the same tone after a decade or two. But when it comes to Christina he says her voice is still in incredible shape, and he calls her one of the greatest artists of this generation. 

He also says he's not sure about recording a song for her, cuz these things often don't end up happenning/finished (?), but he says it's still better to do it, then to miss out. So he's writing a song for her, cuz she asked him to.

I'm from Spain, it's pretty well translated. He also mentions she is the best female vocalist live and recommends to watch her James Brown tribute and says "she is #1 top live divas"
