Nuovo singolo Sia “The greatest”: Video e Testo

Nuovo singolo Sia

A pochi mesi di distanza dall’immenso successo riscosso da Cheap thrills, hit che ha letteralmente fatto il giro radiofonico del mondo, arriva il nuovo singolo di Sia, intitolato The greatest. Il brano, disponibile in Italia dal 16 Settembre, rappresenta il primo estratto dal suo ottavo album di inediti We are your children, la cui pubblicazione dovrebbe avvenire entro la fine dell’anno.

Per la cantautrice australiana, nota al grande pubblico soprattutto per successi discografici di Chandelier ed Elastic heart, si tratta di un pezzo destinato a dominare ancora una volta le classifiche planetarie, grazie anche alla prestigiosa collaborazione con il rapper statunitense Kendrick Lamar. Nel video ufficiale del brano, diretto da Daniel Askill, compare ancora una volta la giovane ballerina Maddie Ziegler, presente per la quinta volta in una clip della cantante nel ruolo ti protagonista.

Sia Kate Isobelle Furler – questo il suo nome completo – classe 1975, ha iniziato la sua carriera come cantante jazz nei primi anni ’90. Dal suo continente si è poi trasferita prima a Londra e poi a New York, dove ha dato sfoggio delle sue eccezionali doti canore. L’artista, che ad oggi vanta numerosi riconoscimenti tra cui ben cinque nomination ai Grammy Awards, ha senza ombra di dubbio raggiunto la fama internazionale che merita.

Hey, I am the truth
hey, I am the wisdom of the fallen – I’m the youth
hey, I am the greatest
hey, this is the proof
hey, I work hard, pray hard, pay dues, hey
I transform with pressure – I’m hands-on with effort
I fell twice before my bounce back was special
letdowns will get you, and the critics will test you
but the strong will survive, another scar may bless you, ah
