Music video by Christina Aguilera featuring Redman performing Dirrty. (C) 2002 RCA/JIVE Label Group, a unit of Sony Music Entertainment.
"Dirrty" is a song performed by American singer Christina Aguilera featuring rapper Reggie "Redman" Noble. The song was written by Aguilera and Redman along with Jasper Cameron, Balewa Muhammad, and Rockwilder for Aguilera's second studio album Stripped (2002). It received mixed reviews from music critics.
"Dirrty" was released in September 2002 as the album's lead single (see 2002 in music). It was unsuccessful in the U.S., only reaching number 48 on the Billboard Hot 100, but was better received elsewhere, cracking the Top 10 of 17 countries and topping the UK Singles Chart and the Irish Singles Chart. "Dirrty" was nominated for "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" at the 45th Grammy Awards.
The song is best remembered for its accompanying music video, for which Aguilera was allowed creative control. The video brought her sexuality to the forefront and depicted various sexual fetishes, from mud wrestling to sthenolagnia. It eliminated the teenybopper, "girl next door" image that she had accumulated from her previous work.
