A Great Big World hit it big this year when their song "Say Something" featuring Christina Aguilera reached the top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart. The duo - comprised of Chad Vaccarino and Ian Axel - first recorded the somber tune alone but then Aguilera heard it and wanted to re-record it with them. Now A Great Big World has a new song out entitled "I Really Want It."
According to UMusicians.com, A Great Big World began streaming "I Really Want It" on Tuesday and now the song is in the top 10 on iTunes' singles chart. In an interview with us, Vaccarino and Axel described the rest of the music on upcoming album as upbeat and theatrical. Those aforementioned influences are definitely alive and well on "I Really Want It." Over some perky piano, the two sing inspiring lyrics about not giving up. "I really want it right now," they declare with absolute determination. It's a very playful song and a promising sign of more great music to come from A Great Big World.
"I Really Want It" is now available on iTunes. A Great Big World's debut album "Is There Anybody Out There?" will be released on Jan. 14.
