Sia Premieres “Cheap Thrills”

Sia’s next This Is Acting song comes alive.

While it’s a pity artists like Adele and Rihanna passed on them, we’re grateful Sia decided to take all the throwaway tracks artists rejected and plop them onto her new album out in January.

This marks the fourth release off the forthcoming record, including “One Million Bullets” and “Bird Set Free,” and “Alive.”

Sia Talks Writing For Kanye West and Rihanna

The song was reportedly meant for Rihanna, who passed on it, among others. Sia told reporters this week: “She came over to my house for the first time the other night,” she said. “I had never really met her before. I used to just send her the tracks. And so I had met her very briefly at SNL when she sung ‘Diamonds.’ She came over and listened to half of 25 songs I played her because she’s still looking for songs for her new album. She was there clearly to listen to songs and see if there was anything she that was in to. It was a business meeting, for sure. She took four songs, but I don’t know if they’ll end up on the record, I’m pretty sure I have one (placement) on the new album. But I don’t know if I’ll have more than that.”
