A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
Released: 17th February 2014.
The lead single from American pop duo A Great Big World, "Say Something" enlists the assistance of pop diva heavyweight Christina Aguilera in the delivery of a gorgeous, understated ballad. The male vocal does drown out Christina's in some parts, and indeed Christina does come off as a background vocalist here, but the gut-wrenching, desperate, heartbreaking emotion of the protagonist is well-illustrated by both male and female counterparts. A well-polished, honest tear-inducer, "Say Something" is as irresistible as it is haunting. #1 beckons.
