If anyone expected Sia’s desire for anonymity to dissipate with the release of her first music video in four years, their hopes have been dashed by “Chandelier.” The award-winning songwriter, whose pen has been the force behind mega-hit songs for Rihanna, Katy Perry and Beyoncé, to name a few among many, is finally stepping out with another solo record of her own, 1000 Forms of Fear.
The tropical track, which was written by Sia and Kelly Clarkson collaborator, Greg Kurstin, has her speaking a little Spanish, rapping about sangria and saying things like, “I want you to love me long time.”

At first listen, you might mistake Sia’s new song “Chandelier” for something by Rihanna. And you’re not off the mark to think so.
