Sias New YOLO Song Chandelier Could Have Been Rihannas Next Hit – MTVPosted on: May 9, 2018, by : xnlamp
Theres a new Rihanna song on the Interwebs, but its not by Rihanna.Siaoriginally penned the track Chandelier for the likes of Ri, but, in the end, she decided to keep it for herself.
The track is a kind of sad, modern-day Gatsby jam about the glitter and fatigue of a party girls life, capped off with Sias soaring refrain: Im gonna swing from the chandelier.
I usually think, Oh this would work for Rihanna, or this would be a good one for B or Katy, Sia toldOn Air with Ryan Seacrest.But this time I was like, Uh oh I think I just wrote a full-blown pop song for myself by accident!
Chandelier might herald new music from the singer-songwriter, a prolific talent who has been penning songs since the 90s for the likes of Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Flo Rida.
My friend Jesse Shatkin and I were jamming in the studio I was playing piano and him on the marimba and this gem popped out, she said.
Shes been incredible for a long time, collaboratorNe-Yo told MTV Newslast year of Sia. Her mastery of melody, from just the way that she works, her words and phrases, its been incredible. And people are just now catching on! Yall are late; everybodys late. Its been that way.
The perfect musical accompaniment to your next epic bad decision.
The song is Sias first original track since 2010sWe Are Born, although she didcontribute a songto The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack last year with Diplo and The Weeknd.
