I Can Give You Nothing is one of the simpler songs on the album but was one of the hardest for the group to compose. Big Spin always wanted to make a reggae song, but for some reason it never sounded quite right, until now. It’s obvious that it’s directly inspired by Sublime, one of their favorite bands.
The lyrics, although simple, address a way of looking at love that goes beyond material things: People think that to love someone is to give them everything, but it’s only when they are willing to give what they don’t have that they can truly love.
As for the video, the group wanted to try something completely different. Through the Universidad de la Comunicacion, the band contacted Paulina del Carmen, a talented professional contemporary dancer, to make a choreography and dance around Mexico City, to give it more of an urban feeling.
