Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World have caught lightning in a bottle with “Say Something”. The simple, sparse ballad immediately struck a chord with listeners — jumping straight to number one on the iTunes chart and scoring radio adds across the board. The next step in its march to Billboard Hot 100 glory is a great music video and they deliver.
In keeping with the song’s soft and subtle tone, the visual is understated and classy. It centers around a bed and the universality of its occupants’ grief. Interspersed with those scenes is footage of the New York-based duo at the piano and Xtina looking utterly perfect in a sleek black dress. Grab a tissue and watch the emotional clip up top.
