Christina Aguilera is coming for the competition once more with success featuring on a rock band’s single (#lotuspromo), as A Great Big World‘s spare, haunting ballad “Say Something” continues to climb the charts with a guiding hand from the Lotus legend, and the guys of the band — Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino — have spoken out about the collab in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, calling her feature on the track “amazing.”
“We actually were thinking that she would take a verse and do all this belting stuff at the end, but she didn’t want to do that, she wanted to let the song just be,” Vaccarino explained. “It makes you kind of feel the longing [of the song].”
Axel continued, “She wanted to let it breathe and just be open, and we’ve never heard her sound so vulnerable. From what she’s told us, she’s in a different place in her life, and she only wants to take on projects that inspire her, so we’re super honored.”
Christina Aguilera: Still slaying something. It keeps getting better, indeed.
