Sia is back with a brand new music video for her new song “Cheap Thrills”, taken from her seventh studio album “This Is Acting”, once again featuring the young talented dancer, Maddie Ziegler.
Maddie has been starring in a number of Sia’s music videos, including “Chandelier”, “Elastic Heart” and “Big Girls Cry”, and like all of the previously mentioned videos, her lyrical dance performances are as amazing and captivating as ever.
“This is Acting” was co-written by Sia and Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Greg Kurstin, and it was originally intended to be performed by Rihanna and Icona Pop, but was rejected by both of the artistes, says Vulture.
The music video was co-directed by Sia and Daniel Askill featuring 13-year-old Maddie dancing with two other male dancers to Ryan Heffington’s choreography.
The three dancers all wear nude-coloured leotards with black and white wigs, and while the three of them are dancing to the song, Sia can be spotted singing at the corner wearing a similar two-toned wig which covers her face, a large white bow and white dress.
See if you can spot her!
