Remix and releaseEdit

In 2008, Aguilera released her first greatest hits album, Keeps Gettin' Better: A Decade of Hits. The album features two remixed versions of two of her previous hits: "Genie in a Bottle" ("Genie 2.0") and "Beautiful" ("You Are What You Are (Beautiful)"), both of which were produced by Linda Perry. The version features elements from "chilly" electropop and electronic genres. The song was released via iTunes Stores in order to promote the album.

Upon its release, critical response to "Genie 2.0" was favorable. Associated Content praised its "interesting", "more melodic and techno" sound of the song, as opposed to the original. Nick Butler for Sputnik music compared the track's electronic sounds to The Eurythmics's "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)", deeming the version "awesome". Nick Levine for Digital Spy commented about the two remakes that "though hardly essential, work better than they have any right to".

In support of the greatest hits album, Aguilera performed "Genie 2.0" and "Keeps Gettin' Better" at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. On November 22, 2008, "Genie 2.0" debuted and peaked at number 161 on the UK Singles Chart.

LyricsEdit

I feel like I've been locked up tight
A century of lonely nights
Waiting, waiting for someone

You're licking your lips
And blowing kisses my way
That don't mean I'm gonna give it away

Baby, oh baby

If you wanna be with me
Baby, there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way

The music's playin'
And the lights down low
One more dance and then we're good to go
Waitin', waitin' for someone

My hormones racin' at the speed of light
But that don't mean it's gotta be tonight
Baby, ooh baby

If you wanna be with me
Baby, there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way

If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
Gotta make a big impression
Gotta like what you do

Gotta like what you do

Gotta like what you do

I'm a genie in a bottle, baby
I'm a genie in a bottle, baby
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out

If you wanna be with me
Baby, there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way

If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
You gotta make a big impression
Gotta like what you do


I'm a genie in a bottle, baby
I'm a genie in a bottle, baby
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
(My heart is sayin' no)
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
(My heart is sayin' no)
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
(My heart is sayin' no)
Come on, come on, come on in and let me out
(My body's sayin' let's go)
Come on, come on, come on and let me out
