Sia‘s new album, This Is Acting, includes hip-shaking track “Cheap Thrills” which was originally meant for Rihanna. On February 10, Sia released a lyric music video for the song. It’s filmed in black and white, like an American show from the ’50s, and focuses on a dance competition.
The vast majority of dancers are conservative in style, as one would dance at prom or a wedding, until two faceless people wearing Sia wigs casually walk in. They wait a little before showing off some expressive dance moves that are clearly out of place, yet fantastic. Everyone is surprised and are eventually encouraged to join in! Unlike the album, the song features Sean Paul‘s vocals.
