Sia Kate Isobelle Furler aka Sia, the Australian artist is blessed with a voice so distinct that every music lover can identify her. The singer is also known to create an air of mystery by often covering her face using an oversized black and white bob-fringe hair wig. The 43-year-old is currently in the news post sharing her health status on Twitter and would be taking a break from her music career to focus on her health. Here is the list of Sia songs that are fan favourites as well as commercial hits.
For many pop fans, this song might be their power jam. Released in 2011, the video featuring a young boy with supernatural powers has received over 1 billion views. Even though the music is credited to French DJ and music producer David Guetta, Sia's solo vocals are unmissable. The song encompasses pop music mixed with an emotional ballad. The lyrics of Titanium symbolising empowerment and triumph made the song a massive hit.
The song Cheap Thrills is from Sia's seventh studio album called This Is Acting (2016). The song has a bouncy beat and the lyrics focus on the importance of money and relationships. The song garnered a larger audience when it was officially remixed and released in 2016 featuring the vocals from Jamaican singer Sean Paul. This version was then nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. Cheap Thrills became Sia's first single to reach number one position on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The song was originally released along with Canadian singer The Weeknd and American record producer Diplo for the soundtrack of 2013 American film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But when the solo version was released in 2015, it was accompanied by an unusual music video featuring Maddie Ziegler with Shia Labeouf. After the song's solo release, Sia's raw and emotional voice made this song a massive hit.
Post the release of Sia's fifth studio album, Sia took a hiatus from performing and concentrated on writing songs for other artists. With Chandelier, she released a bomb lead single from her sixth studio album with powerful vocals and thought-provoking lyrics. Chandelier was bound to receive Grammy nominations, and it did. For some, it will remain one of the best songs of the 21st century and perhaps the best song of 2014.
Even though the singer has not confirmed the interpretation of the song, fans perceive Greatest as Sia's tribute to the Orlando nightclub shooting incident. The Greatest also features the American rapper, Kendrick Lamar and its impact is accentuated by Sia's powerful soaring voice.
