"Say Something" is a song by American duo A Great Big World. The song was originally released on February 8, 2011 on band member Ian Axel's solo album This Is the New Year but went largely unnoticed until it was released as the second single on the band's debut studio album, Is There Anybody Out There? (2014), on September 3, 2013. The single was re-recorded to feature vocals from American recording artist Christina Aguilera, after she heard the song and loved it. The version featuring Aguilera was released on November 4, 2013.
"Say Something" is an indie pop piano ballad about a breakup, where the lover is implored to make a statement that could potentially reverse plans, with the singers expressing humility, sadness and regret. The song received critical acclaim, being praised for its powerful lyrics, the emotional production and Aguilera's delicate vocals added to the mix. To promote the song, a music video for the re-released version was premiered on November 19, 2013.
The original version had featured on the television competition show So You Think You Can Dance. Following the performance of A Great Big World and Aguilera on The Voice, the song garnered commercial success on music charts. It reached the top five on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Hot 100. A Great Big World and Aguilera also performed the song at the American Music Awards of 2013.
