"Ain't No Other Man" is a song recorded by American singer and songwriter Christina Aguilera for her fifth studio album, Back to Basics (2006). It was sent to US contemporary hit radio on June 6, 2006, by RCA Records as the lead single from the album. The song was written by Aguilera, DJ Premier, Charles Martin Roane, Kara DioGuardi and Harold Beatty, while production of the track was handled by Premier. "Ain't No Other Man" incorporates pop, R&B, and funk genres with elements of soul, blues and jazz music. Lyrically, the song was inspired by her marriage to Jordan Bratman in 2005.

Upon its release, "Ain't No Other Man" received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who complimented Aguilera's new musical style and deemed it as a stand-out track from Back to Basics. It won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2007 ceremony. Commercially, the track peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of 1,783,000 million copies. Internationally, it reached the top five in multiple territories including Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

An accompanying music video for "Ain't No Other Man" was directed by Bryan Barber. The clip jumps back in time, depicting Aguilera as her then newly established alter ego Baby Jane. The video received mostly positive feedback, with praised the mature image Aguilera had adopted. It earned four nominations at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year. Aguilera performed "Ain't No Other Man" during several television performances, including the 2006 MTV Movie Awards and the 2007 NBA All-Star Game. The track was also included in the set list of her Back to Basics Tour (2006–07).

Background and production[edit]

Following the release of her fourth studio album, Stripped (2002), and several collaborations, Aguilera decided to incorporate elements of 1930s and 1940s musical styles in her follow-up album project.[1] She commented that she wished to revolve as an artist and a visionary in between production of the records.[2] Aguilera sent letters to various producers that she hoped could help her with the direction she was taking for the project, encouraging them to experiment, re-invent and create a modern soul feel.[3]

The final product, her fifth album Back to Basics, comprises two discs.[2] For the first half disc, Aguilera collaborated with "more beat-driven" producers including DJ Premier and Mark Ronson, who incorporated musical samples into many of the recordings. She described it as "kind of a throwback with elements of jazz, blues and soul music combined with a modern-day twist, like hard-hitting beats".[2] The contents of the second disc were written and produced solely by Linda Perry, Aguilera's longtime collaborator.[2][4] Aguilera had first collaborated with DJ Premier after hearing his jazz-influenced work with Gang Starr.[2] She revealed that she was impressed, and she also wanted to make jazz-influenced materials.[1] Aguilera stated that she was unsure if DJ Premier would accept the offer, having been his first time working with pop music.[5] Premier later agreed and commented,[1]

I was surprised I got that call 'cause of our differences in the audiences we hit, but I'm always up for challenges and trying something new ... She described what her album is about and then she sent me some CDs of what type of stuff's been inspiring her to make the record, and it happened to be a lot of stuff that I grew up on in the early '70s, 'cause I'm 40. Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Marvin Gaye, Esther Williams, all kinds of different things. Once I saw that's the vibe she wanted, I still had to make it sound like the way my beats thump and stuff but still give her the atmosphere she's trying to bring out on the singing side.

Release[edit]

While writing "Ain't No Other Man", Aguilera drew inspiration from her husband Jordan Bratman, whom she wedded in 2005.[1] DJ Premier described the track as a "sassy" and "old-Aretha [Franklin] 'Respect'" recording.[1] He further commented that its pace was "too fast", "like 130 beats per minute" and different from his earlier projects.[1] Though lyrics had yet to be written, Aguilera was "in love" with the "high energy" track when she first heard it.[6] Consequentially, she chose to service "Ain't No Other Man" as the lead single from Back to Basics.[6]

"Ain't No Other Man" was sent to contemporary hit and rhythmic radio stations in the United States on June 6, 2006.[7] On June 9, the single was released as a digital download single in the country.[8] On June 11, the song was purchased on iTunes Store in Canada.[9] In the United States, it was also available for a 12-inch single on June 20,[10] a CD single on June 25,[11] and a digital remix extended play (EP) on August 22, 2006.[12] In the United Kingdom, "Ain't No Other Man" was released as a CD single on June 24, 2006.[13] The track was also released as a CD single and maxi single in Germany and France on July 28 and September 25, 2006, respectively.[14][15] A digital remix EP was available on iTunes Stores worldwide on August 22, including in Sweden[16] and Canada.[17]

Composition[edit]

"Ain't No Other Man" is a pop, R&B[18] and funk song.[19] Its instrumentation incorporates keyboards, horns, drums and percussion.[19][20] The song contains samples from "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" and "The Cissy's Thang".[20]

"Ain't No Other Man" was written and produced by Aguilera, DJ Premier, and Charles Roane, with additional songwriting provided by Harold Beatty and Kara DioGuardi.[20] It is a pop, R&B[18] and funk[19][21] song with elements of old-school soul,[2] blues and jazz.[22] Thus, the song is a mixture between old-school and contemporary materials, according to Aguilera herself.[1] The track contains two samples from "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" by David Cortez & The Moon People, and "The Cissy's Thang" by The Soul Seven.[20] Its instrumentation incorporates keyboards, guitar, drums, percussion,[20] and horns.[19] The arrangement of the instruments on "Ain't No Other Man" was described as "raw" and "ass-shaking".[21] Several critics complimented the mixture between old and modern materials; Jody Rosen from Entertainment Weekly claimed that the jazzy melody from the track suited Aguilera perfectly,[22] while Jody Rosen of The Guardian deemed the melody of "Ain't No Other Man" "fun" and "crispy".[19]

According to the sheet music published on Musicnotes.com by Bug Music, "Ain't No Other Man" was composed in the key of F minor.[23] It has a chord progression of A–B7–F–G7–C13–F7 minor in the beginning, F minor–B♭–F minor–B♭–F minor–B♭–F minor–D♭7–C7–B♭–F minor in the verses, and F minor–B♭ in the chorus.[23] The song has a moderate fast tempo of 132 beats per minute.[23] Aguilera's vocal range on the track spans from A♭3 to C5.[23] Dorian Lyskey of The Guardian noted that the beats of the song are "brassy" and have the same "aerobic oomph" as Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love",[19] while Jody Rosen from Entertainment Weekly deemed the track "exhilarating".[22] PopMatters editor Mike Joseph also noted that the song was an uptempo one, calling it "jazzy" and "thumping".[24] In 2012, while reviewing Aguilera's album Lotus, Mike Wass for Idolator wrote that "Red Hot Kinda Love" is the answer song to "Ain't No Other Man" for its fun elements.[25] According to Aguilera; lyrically, "Ain't No Other Man" is not a love song, just only intertwines with the events that she experienced in real life.[6] The song seems to be about Aguilera's husband, Jordan Bratman, but actually it's about feeling good.[2] During an interview with MTV News, she revealed the meaning of the song, "I wanted to make it light and easy for people to dance to and sing along to... Lyrically, I just got married, so it's about someone in particular, but it's all about feeling good and not taking anything too seriously".[2]

Sampling controversy[edit]

A controversy arose over the sampling credits of "Ain't No Other Man". A sample from David Cortez & The Moon People's 1968 song "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" was featured in the song.[20] In 2011, American publishing company TufAmerica sued Sony Music for sampling it.[26][27] According to the federal lawsuit filled in New York, TufAmerica purchased the exclusive rights to "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" in 2004.[26] Although the company owned rights to the song, Sony Music made a deal with Codigo Music and the Clyde Otis Music Group to use the sample.[26] Aguilera was not named as a defendant in the suit.[26]

Music video[edit]

Background[edit]

The accompanying music video for "Ain't No Other Man" was directed by Bryan Barber and was choreographed by Jeri Slaugher.[71] After seeing a trailer of Barber's film project, Idlewild, Aguilera wanted to make a video which is directed by him.[71] Discussing about the director, Aguilera explained why she wanted to work with him, "It intrigued me that this man, Bryan Barber, had been very locked into and had surrounded himself with this whole world of the '20s and '30s era, and it made me think that he could understand what I'm trying to do conceptually. I needed to get the right director who shared my vision".[71] At first, Aguilera planned to make a black-and-white video and shot it in her living room for Barber and Slaugher.[71] "I had acted out the entire video in my living room. I used my fireplace as a makeshift stage and the staircase as the pool table where I would stand", said Aguilera.[6] According to Barber, Aguilera was very involved in the making of it.[71] The whole team seemed like they were doing a movie more than a music video.[71] On June 21, 2006, the music video for "Ain't No Other Man" was premiered on MTV's Total Request Live.[6]

Synopsis[edit]

Throughout the music video, Aguilera portrays her alter ego Baby Jane,[6][72] a nickname that Nelly once gave her.[71] The clip jumps back in time,[71] begins with a car with a license plate reading "Baby Jane" stopped in front of a bar in a dark street in California. In front of the bar, a man is smoking a cigarette. The scene at this time interspersed with the melody of Aguilera's song "I Got Trouble", which is played as if it were on the radio with minor noise. Then, she comes out on high heels and classic outfits with a hat. After the car door is closed, the song begins, and Aguilera starts dancing with her male and female dancers while singing the song. On the first chorus, Aguilera is in a dressing room, wearing her bra and making up with the help of her dancers,[6] and also receiving flowers from a stranger.

During the second verse, Aguilera appears in red outfits and listens to music with silver gramophone headphones. While singing the second chorus, Aguilera is in front of photographers, and she continues to sing, wearing fur encrusted with silver dress, with the scene she wears gold dress overlapping each other. Afterwards, Aguilera appears with white and black outfits and continues dancing during the chorus. At the bridge, she walks through the bar and finds her lover. After finding him, she pushes him down on the chair,[6] then she jumps to the billiards table and continues to sing while the chandelier above her head began to explode and spark fireworks. When the chorus sounds again, she appeares with silver dress and makes the bar awakened, dancing. Toward the ends, the club becomes empty, and gentle Aguilera performing "I Got Trouble" again, lying on the piano while the people in the club watch her.[72]

Reception[edit]

Jody Rosen for Entertainment Weekly noted, "She's revamped [...] her look, sporting an Andrews Sister bouffant and jazz-age togs in the video".[22] Michael Slezak, another editor from Entertainment Weekly, complimented "Ain't No Other Man" video.[73] He wrote that Aguilera "rocks seven classy-sexy looks in just under five minutes, each more flawless than the one before it (especially that final silver dress and gizzorgeously wild mane)".[73] Its choreography was also praised, "[it] is at once modern and totally in keeping with the whole Cotton Club vibe brought to life", "and just as important, Christina looks like she’s having a blast throughout".[73] Jenny Eliscu of Rolling Stone praised the video, calling it one of the best clips from the album.[31] Rachel McRady for Wetpaint was also positive toward the clip, writing that "Her gold, glittering suspenders are almost as fabulous as her face-melting high notes".[74] James Montgomery from MTV News, on the other hand, was negative toward the clip.[72] He selected "Ain't No Other Man" as one of her worst videos, writing "Aguilera kicked off her Back to Basics reinvention with this appropriately anachronistic clip, where she vamps through Prohibition-era Harlem".[72] The music video was nominated for four MTV Video Music Awards in 2006, they are: Video of the Year, Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Best Choreography.[75] However, the video did not win any of them.[75]
