Sia – Cheap Thrills (ft. Sean Paul) [Remix]
Australian singer/songwriter Sia has chosen Rihanna-reject ‘Cheap Thrills’ as her second single and premieres the lyric video with extra vocals from Sean Paul.
Sia released her latest album ‘This Is Acting’ last month to generally positive reviews from music critics and now she follows up first single ‘Alive’ with one of the two tracks rejected by Rihanna, the island-flavoured ‘Cheap Thrills’.
‘Cheap Thrills’ was written by Sia and produced by frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin, and is a wise choice for the follow-up single with its tropical pop sensibilities and contagious chorus fuelled by the energetic chants “I love cheap thrills!”. For the radio mix, Sia strategically enlists Sean Paul to inject some Caribbean swag to the record and he rides the bustling beat comfortably making for an apt companion.
