Sia releases music video featuring Maddie Ziegler for new song 'Cheap Thrills'

If you enjoyed the music videos for "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart," then get ready for yet another Sia and Maddie Ziegler collaboration as the two have teamed up again in the video for Sia's newest single, "Cheap Thrills."

The video shows Ziegler in a split color wig dancing with two other male dancers and hamming it up for the camera--facials and all. Meanwhile Sia, with her face cleverly hidden as always, sings into a microphone in the background.

According to Rolling Stone, Sia originally wrote the song for Barbadian pop-singer Rihanna.

"I realized just as soon as I was cutting it that it sounded a little bit too Brit-pop for her," she said.

The singer eventually gave Rihanna "Diamonds," for her album Unapologetic. 

"Cheap Thrills" was then offered to Swedish duo Icona Pop, who passed on it. Sia found she enjoyed listening to the song herself and decided to include it on her new album This is Acting, an album comprised mostly of songs written for other artists.
