5.0 out of 5 stars Two hot ladies on one Hot track 16 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
this is a great song with a tight beat, deffinetly one for the ladies, the only problem i have with this song is that it wasn't her comeback single, the problem with this song is it's timing, she released the controversial dirrty which was a worldwide smash, beautiful a classic touching ballad being a smash number 1 hit (also her biggest selling solo hit), the aggresive Fighter with an amazing video, but when it comes to cant hold us down i cant help but feel this is weak compared to her previous 3 singles released from Stripped, the song is likely to peak at number 39 in the US, but will hopefully do better, and will hopefully be a big hit here, the song is about double standards, christina has written this song and lil kim makes an excellent contribution. she performed this at the vma's 2003, all in all the song is good, well done christina on being a very successful artist and writer, look out for her next single the voice within/ impossible, and a 2nd spanish album due out next year!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Another Man-Hating Anthem?! 24 Dec 2003
By Busy Body - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The year 2003 was shaping up to be Christina's most successful year yet by August. Her second album Stripped was spending weeks and weeks atop the charts around the world, and the singles released from it were still in heavy radio rotation. "Dirrty," "Beautiful" and "Fighter" were the first three singles to be released from the album and all did incredibly well world-wide. September 2003 saw the release of the fourth single from the album. It was called "Can't Hold Us Down" and featured rapper Lil' Kim, with whom Christina had previously worked with on the Moulin Rouge No.1 smash "Lady Marmalade" from 2001.

At the end of August Christina joined Madonna and chart-rival Britney Spears on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for what has gone on to become the most talked-about music performance in decades. Madonna kissed both Britney and Christina on the lips in front of the world as they danced and sung to a medley of Madonna's "Hollywood" and "Like A Virgin." The whole performance was in aid of Madonna's 20 years as the Queen of Pop. The media focused more on Britney than Christina, which has caused the latter to spit venom at Miss Spears recently. Personally, I think Christina is jealous of Britney in this respect, and she should just keep her opinion to herself instead of slagging everyone off.

Anyway, Can't Hold Us Down should have been a huge hit but only managed No.6 in the UK. The song starts off with a trippy beat before Christina starts off the first verse, "So what am I not supposed to have an opinion? Should I keep quiet just because I'm a woman? Call me a b***h cause I speak what's on my mind. Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled. When a female fires back, suddenly big talker don't know how to act. So he does what any little boy would do. Makin' up a few false rumours or two. That for sure is not a man to me. Slandering names for popularity. It's sad you only get your fame through controversy, but now its time for me to come and give you more to say."

The strong girl power themes and assertive independence are clear from this first verse, which is carried through into the first chorus, "This is for my girls all around the world. Who have come across a man that don't respect your worth. Thinkin' all women should be seen not heard. So what do we do girls? Shout out loud. Lettin' 'em know we're gonna stand our ground. So lift your hands higher and wave 'em proud. Take a deep breath and say it loud. Never can, never will, can't hold us down." Christina then sings the second verse and the second chorus, before Lil' Kim comes in to do her rap. I think this is the highlight of the song, even though I'm not too keen on Lil' Kim. She seems too stuck-up for my liking, but the rap is still good.

Christina then sings "You're just a little boy. Think you're so cute, so coy. You must talk so big to make up for smaller things. You're just a little boy. All you do is annoy. You must talk so big to make up for smaller things." Christina then sings the chorus a few more times, as her backing singers jump in and sing along with her. The song then totally changes pace, and ends with a bouncy funky beat where Christina goes all "Uh! Oh! Uh! Yeah!" on us, before the song gradually dies down and fades out. The video to Can't Hold Us Down is probably my least favourite from all the songs taken from Stripped. Christina is in a street with Lil' Kim and her 'girlfriends' as they battle with the guys about sexism and all that. Obviously the girls win, as Christina parades around in next to nothing (We know you're outspoken love, you don't have to take your kit off to prove it). All in all, this is a good song from Christina. Not the best, but not the worst.

5.0 out of 5 stars Telling it like it is... 7 Nov 2003
By Kali - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Christina Aguilera isn't one of my favourite artists but over the last few months she has really been growing on me, mainly because of thought provoking lyrics in her last few songs. I exclude "Dirrty"from this list though I had to admit that was a great dance track if nothing else!

However "Can't Hold us Down" is a great song, very catchy and VERY smart in what it is saying. Her words ring true, if you're a girl and you play around you are a Ho, but if you are a man, well you get away with it. Double standards or what?

Lil Kim is great too, sexy, sassy and smart and what a voice that woman has! Petite Power is Lil Kim!

The video is great too and I loved the fact that the women dancing and singing were all shapes and sizes, colours and looks, the big girl dancing, shaking her booty was fantastic and the mother carrying the baby and wagging her finger angrily at the men being provocative toward Christina was wonderful as was the gum chewing girl with freckles, now she has an expressive face and put all of this together with a great song and you a great video too.

This is worth listening too, and whilst it gives out a strong message it is also fun too, so enjoy it, that's what music is all about...

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't hold Christina Aguilera down. 13 Sep 2003
By Donna Pieters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Christina Aguilera is an amazingly talented girl, relatively pretty (whatever anybody thinks) ,a voice and the x factor to match. This song is socially aware about the fact that women can't progress in society because of the double stansards and sometimes sexist attitudes, and she makes this point totally clear. It is amazingly pushy and sexy, and Lil' Kim is an added bonus, though we all know who the star is. The remixes by Jacknife Lee and The Sharp Boys (remix kings who have worked with Madonna, S Club 7, Mary J Blige, Britney, George Michael etc...) are also pretty cool too. Overall an all round knockout by Christina.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT REMIXES! 25 Mar 2004
By Tim Verheyn Junior - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The 1st remix is so good! The beat was sped up and Christina and Lil Kim's voices were separated, so good! The second remix is good after you listen to it a few times.
