Sia Releases ‘The Greatest’, The Lead Single From ‘We Are The Children’
Sia may be busy conquering the end of the summer with ‘Cheap Thrills’, but she’s got her eyes set on something even greater for the fall.
After weeks of teasing, Sia has released a brand new song – ‘The Greatest’ – a song that is rumored to kick off a new LP only a year after the launch of ‘This Is Acting’.
As far as Sia songs go, it’s pretty much what you’ve come to expect – an uplifting anthem back by trendy pop production. Toss in Kendrick Lamar and subtract Sean Paul and you’ve got a dead ringer for a follow up to her #1 hit.
Still, what’s partly different about this release is the powerful visual that accompanies it. Yes, it stars Maddie Ziegler. Yes, it’s choreography heavy. However, there’s something more sinister about this clip. Shot in a near identical apartment that the infamous ‘Chandelier’ music video took place in, Maddie is not alone in this visual. Bands of children gather to join her in her contemporary movements all the way up to the chilling end.
With nods to the LGBT community throughout the video, there’s no doubt about it that the ‘The Greatest’ music video is a performance art piece dedicated to those who lost their lives earlier this year in the brutal Pulse Nightclub shooting.
