The singer revealed that she doesn't mind taking risks as it's part of her nature, and therefore she doesn't always expect her projects to be commercial hits.
"I've already put out a greatest hits record, so I've been in this business for a while, and I'm a risk-taker, that's just who I am at heart," Aguilera is quoted by The Sun as saying.
"It's who I can't help but be. It's who I always am in nature, as a person and as an artist."
She added: "With that comes hurdles and certain areas where people aren't going to get it and understand it artistically; sometimes it will go over their heads and it will not be as commercially successful."
Aguilera will release her new album Lotus in the UK on November 12 and a day later in the US.
The new collection will be preceded by lead single 'Your Body', which is available to download in the US now and will be released in the UK on November 4.
