A Great Big World Fulfill Their Rock Star Dreams with ‘I Really Want It’ Video
By Shannon Carlin
After earning themselves a hit with “Say Something” featuring none other than Christina Aguilera, A Great Big World have become instant pop stars. And in their latest video for “I Really Want It” they give us taste of what their newfound success is like.
On the song from their debut, Is There Anybody Out There?, the New York duo of Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino trade uplifting verses like, “I say we chuck inhibitions/And sell our souls to rock and roll/I need to know what I’m missing.”
For the clip the duo do just that, giving fans a sneak peek of their live show and what it’s like to hang out with them backstage. Unsurprisingly, it looks like it’s a lot of fun.
“When I met Chad I wasn’t singing and I never thought that I had anything worthwhile to share,” he said. “This whole process over this past eight years is relearning to love myself and knowing that what I care about is actually beautiful.”
