“Genie in a Bottle” is a pop song by Christina Aguilera released on her self-titled debut album in 1999. It became the biggest-selling single in the U.S. that year, topped the Billboard 100 charts, and quickly sold over 2 million copies. You couldn’t turn the radio on without hearing it!
The lyrics to Genie in a Bottle mean something different to different people. One thing is pretty clear, however: it barely has anything to do with actual genies, bottles, or wishes.
