Background[edit]

  • However, record company RCA Records felt that with the holiday season coming up, it would be safer to release "Hurt", as it would become a big holiday power ballad, comparable to how Aguilera's "Beautiful" performed commercially back in the 2002 holidays. ---> However, the singer's recording label RCA Records felt that with the holiday season coming up, it would be safer to release "Hurt", as it would become a big holiday power ballad, comparable to how Aguilera's "Beautiful" performed commercially back in the 2002 holidays.

Second read through[edit]

Lead[edit]

  • It was written by Aguilera, Linda Perry and Mark Ronson, and produced by Perry for Aguilera's fifth studio album, Back to Basics (2006). ---> repetition of "Aguilera", try "her", "the latter" or "the singer"
  • It was released as the album's second single on September 19, 2006 by RCA Records instead of "Candyman", which was planned to be the second one. ---> repetition of "it", try "the song" or "the track"
  • Perry developed the first draft of the song while Aguilera rewrote some of the lyrics, and the final version is a tribute to the pair's symbiotic teamwork ---> this is sourced by About.com, which is NOT so reliable
  • Aguilera's voice ---> vocals
  • attained a moderate success ---> success is countable lol?
  • however, it was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having sold more than 1.1 million copies in the country alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan. ---> don't require "however"
  • directed by Floria Sigismondi and Aguilera herself in September 2006. ---> I think Aguilera is just a co-director here
  • It was well-received, ---> reduce the comma

Background[edit]

  • On the second disc and her work with Perry on it, Aguilera stated ---> about, not on
  • originated of ---> ?

Sources[edit]

Several sources which have problems:

  • FN4: About.com doesn't require brackets in its publisher
  • FN5: What is Mansized? Try to find sources are reliable, like I did on "Candyman (Christina Aguilera song)"
  • FN9: MetroLyrics requires publisher
  • FN18: CBS News requires publisher
  • FN21: IGN requires publisher
  • FN25: cite news
  • FN55: work?
  • FN56: publisher?
  • Sources for charts in "Chart performance" and "Charts" must be as the same.
  • Sources for "Amazon.com" needs publisher as "Amazon Inc"
