So, this is sort of hard to believe, but despite the fact that David Guetta and Sia‘s ginormous worldwide House smash “Titanium” was released way back in December of 2011 (and premiered even earlier that summer), the powerhouse singer-songstress has never actually done an acoustic performance of the song — up until just now.
No matter how the film turns out (please let it be Moulin Rouge, Part Deux!), the accompanying soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby is already a solid smash, thanks to incredible contributions from the likes of Florence + The Machine, The XX, Nero and, of course, Lana Del Rey with “Young & Beautiful.”
The next moment of brilliance comes from Queen Sia herself who, while penning pop songs for quite literally every pop star in the modern world over the past 3 years, including Rihanna, Kylie, Legendtina and, most recently, Beyoncé, took the time to contribute a soaring power ballad to the hallowed soundtrack.
And now for something completely perfect. (Or so it seems…)
The trailer for Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby reboot for the New Generation has arrived today, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan.
Not only does the movie look absolutely gorgeous, dazzling and grandiose (much like Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge), but the soundtrack is positively the stuff of dreams: Sia, Florence + The Machine, The XX, Emeli Sandé and of course, Lana Del Rey. (Also will.i.am, but let’s not talk about it. Also, Beyoncé covering Amy Winehouse. Can you please just not though, Bey?)
It’s a fact: Sia has rapidly become one of the most prolific pop writers of the past few years.
The talented songstress has already scribed tracks for Legendtina, Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Rita Ora, as well as the massive hooks on Flo-Rida and David Guetta cuts–and she’s only just gearing up for plenty more in 2013.
Yet now and again (well, always really), we wonder aloud to ourselves at night: What Would Sia’s Version Sound Like? (Be right back, creating “WWSVSL” wristbands for my forthcoming MuuStore.) Right now, no Sia-penned number’s caused more of an outcry for the original than “Diamonds,” Rihanna‘s #1 Unapologetic smash single (and Sia’s very first #1–huge!)
Well, ponder no more.
If you’ve not already heard “Titanium” on the radio, Sia‘s massive dance floor anthem crafted alongside David Guetta (and one of my Top 10 Singles of 2011!), fear not–you’re about to.
Having already peaked at #1 across the pond in the UK in early February (as well as hitting Top 10 in dozens of other countries), the track now stands at #63 on the Billboard Hot 100, already a giant leap up from last week’s #79.
To celebrate, MuuMuse is giving away 5 “Titanium” prize packs.
