"Fighter" is a song recorded by American singer and songwriter Christina Aguilera for her fourth studio album, Stripped (2002). The song was written by Aguilera and Scott Storch, and produced by the latter. It was released by RCA Records as the third single from Stripped on March 13, 2003. Inspired by Guns N' Roses' song "November Rain", "Fighter" was characterized as a hybrid of rock and R&B that incorporates elements of arena rock and rock and roll. The track sees Aguilera thanking a man who had done wrong to her for making her a "fighter."

"Fighter" received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who praised Aguilera's vocals and the song's empowering lyrics. The single peaked at number 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). As of September 2014, "Fighter" has sold 1.184 million copies in the United States. Elsewhere, the song reached the top ten of several national music charts, including those in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the Netherlands.

A music video for "Fighter" was directed by Floria Sigismondi. Aguilera performed the track on three of her major concert tours: Justified and Stripped Tour (2003), The Stripped Tour (2003), and Back to Basics Tour (2006–08). "Fighter" has been covered by several artists, including Jordin Sparks and Darren Criss.

Background and composition

In the book Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Story Behind the Song, Aguilera revealed the occasion, theme and meaning of "Fighter". She talked about her "very chaotic and abusive" home, where she did not feel "safe".[1] In school, Aguilera was picked on and alienated because of her musical passion.[1] However, it made her become "smarter and stronger".[1] To release herself, Aguilera started to write songs at the age of 15, both music and lyrics; and it was the way how she found her voice.[1] The writing process of "Fighter" began during her promotion for her debut album in 1999,[1] when she was "a part of the big craze pop phenomenon".[1] According to Aguilera, her debut album helped her a lot to develop the process.[1] She wanted to make an "emotionally rich and positive empowering" song, especially for women, in order for them to speak for themselves be strong.[1] About the idea of the track, she revealed, "I was coming up with titles and ideas and deciding what I wanted to write about. I had to sit down and make sense of my feelings and experiences. I learned a lot from the first record that helped me to develop. I took the good and the bad and considered some of the choices I made and became better because of it.[1]

Sal Cinquemani from Slant Magazine characterized "Fighter" as a hybrid of R&B and rock.[2] Meanwhile, a reviewer of Billboard described the song as arena rock-influenced,[3] and AOL Music's Nana-Adwoa Ofori noted the elements of rock and roll.[4] However, Nick Levin from Digital Spy detailed "Fighter" as an arena rock piece.[5] The song was inspired by band Guns N' Roses' song "November Rain" (1992).[6] Written in the key of E minor, "Fighter" has a moderate tempo of 96 beats per minute.[7] Brian Hiatt from Entertainment Weekly and Chuck Taylor for Billboard likened the track's musical style to that of Janet Jackson's "Black Cat".[8][9] Aguilera's vocals on the track span from the low-note of G2 to the high-note of F5;[7] Taylor labelled Aguilera's vocals "tornado of a vocal."[9]

At the beginning of "Fighter", the guitar sound was arranged in the chord progression of Em G/D D C Em/B B Am C/G G B7.[7] Aguilera speaks the lyrics, "After all you put me through, you'd think I'd despise you / But in the end, I wanna thank you, 'cause you made me that much stronger" on the guitar theme by Dave Navarro.[7][10] Lyrically, Aguilera wants to thank the man who did her wrong rather than insult him, because he helped make her stronger and work harder, thus making her a fighter.[11] At the chorus, she sings, "'Cause it makes me that much stronger/ Makes me work a little bit harder/ Makes me that much wiser/ So thanks for making me a fighter".[7] The chords in the guitar part are E5 – F5 – G5 – A5 – B5 − C5 – B5 – A5 – G5 – F5 E5. She continues, "Made me learn a little bit faster/ Made my skin a little bit thicker/ Makes me that much smarter/ So thanks for making me a fighter".[9] The lyrics of "Fighter" have been recognized as "empowering".[12]


Critical reception

David Brownie from Entertainment Weekly called it "spunkier than one would expect from a dance-floor strumpet who loves to flaunt her lung power."[13] Chuck Taylor writing for Billboard complimented "Fighter" for demonstrating that Aguilera "[has] got the goods to rise above what so many lesser acts depend on for celebrity."[9] On behalf of the same publication, Andrew Unterberger wrote that "Fighter" and "Can't Hold Us Down" are two tracks that helped "expand audience expectations of her image and sound."[14] Digital Spy's Nick Levine named it a "strutting arena rock" song,[5] while Nick Butler from Sputnikmusic simply called it "great."[15] The New York Times editor Kelefa Sanneh positively viewed the track's theme as "fearless" and "full of mildly rebellious rhetoric."[16] On a less positive side, BBC Music's Jacqueline Hodges called the song "hilarious",[17] while Jancee Dunn from Rolling Stone wrote that the song "is a sterile foray into rock."[18]

It reached number 11 in Belgium (Flanders)[32] and Switzerland,[33] number 12 in Norway[34] and Sweden,[35] number 13 in Germany,[36] and number 15 in Denmark,[37] Italy[38] and Spain.[39] In Hungary, it peaked at number 8 on the Mega Top 100 Singles.[40] The single also reached the top five in the Netherlands.[41] On the UK Singles Chart, "Fighter" was a commercial success, peaking at number three and remained there for 13 weeks, becoming the longest-running single from Stripped on the chart.[42] As of February 2013, "Fighter" has sold 159,000 copies in the United Kingdom.[43] The single also garnered success in Australia and New Zealand, peaking at number five and 14 respectively in the two regions.[44][45] Due to its chart success in Australia, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) certified "Fighter" gold for its shipments of 35,000 copies there.[46]

Music video

The music video for "Fighter" was directed by Floria Sigismondi, who revealed that it would display Aguilera "like I don't think she's been portrayed before".[10] The video was filmed in Los Angeles, California and was inspired by the director's signature dark theatrics and the life circle of moths.[10] Sigismondi explained the theme and plot of the clip to MTV News:[10]

"The song is sort of about transformation, so I took that in a nature kind of way, the way nature deals with transformation. It's basically about coming from a very poisoned place to an empowerment, a place of strength. I've always had this fear of moths, and I subconsciously wrote this thing with these moths in it, so I guess I have to deal with it. They're furry and they carry dust. I found out in old mythology they are supposed to represent the soul. I think that's very appropriate".

The video begins with Aguilera wearing a black velvet kimono, with a pale complexion and long black hair, refers to a larva.[47] Three pins are lodged in her back, making her hunch.[47] Initially, she is trapped in a glass box, and her kimono is billowing like a balloon. Three Gothic ballerinas eat fruit and then collapse.[47] Aguilera then breaks free from the box by pounding on it until it breaks. She tosses aside her kimono after furiously removing the pins on her back and throwing them away.[47] A tattered, white, moth-covered dress is revealed, symbolizing her metaphoric evolution from the larva to a pupa.[47] In addition, her hair becomes white, and moths fly around her.[47] Near the end, Aguilera wears an Elvira-type spider dress, again proclaiming that she is a "fighter".[47]

The music video for "Fighter" garnered numerous awards. At the 2003 Belgian TMF Awards, the clip won Best Video International.[48] It garnered Aguilera and Sigismondi a Juno Award for Video of the Year at the 2004 ceremony, which was held at Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.[49] It also earned four MVPA Awards for Best Pop Video, Best Cinematography, Best Make-Up and Best Styling in a Video in 2004, held at Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, California.[50][51]

Live performances

There's always a positive to those negative times because throughout it you come out so much stronger and wiser".[64] During the Justin Timberlake & Friends benefit showheld by Justin Timberlake on October 24, 2010 in Las Vegas, NevadaAguilera was invited to perform several of her hits, including "Beautiful", "Fighter" and "Ain't No Other Man".[65] On April 16, 2012, Aguilera performed "Fighter" again on the second season of US reality show The Voice, on which she is one of the judges and coaches, with her "Team Xtina" and Crenshaw High School choir.[66] Jonathan Hofmann called the performance "insane and bizarre as it sounds".[67]
