The 39-year-old half-Ecuadorian American singer and pop duo A Great Big World have released the official music video for their latest collaboration, “Fall On Me,” which features Xtina as the Queen of Spring.
The video begins with A Great Big World(Ian Axeland Chad King) entering a winter wonderland where a piano sits next to a tree as snow falls. Flowers begin to bloom, and once Aguilera’s verse hits, suddenly the setting becomes draped in blossoms as spring sets in.
The tree at the video’s centerpiece is a metaphor for the continuous cycle of life, as director Se Ohwanted to convey the journey of love through the life cycle of a tree — a beautiful depiction of the search for connection and love in the song.
“Moving through the seasons with this tree captures the interconnectedness of all things and how in time everything finds its balance and order,” A Great Big World added in an Instagram post with a clip of the visual.
A Great Big World also shared a heartfelt note to Aguilera in their post, writing, “@xtina, thanks for creating magic with us again. Truly one of the highlights of our lives.”
Aguilera and A Great Big World first debuted “Fall On Me” with a breathtaking performance at the 2019 American Music Awardsin November.
It’s the trio’s second team-up since their Grammy-winning 2013 hit “Say Something.”
