Earworms: Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” and “Reaper”

It feels like hit singer/songwriter Sia can sing/write just about any song and make it sound good. After a string of awesome singles from her upcoming record, This is Acting, the elusive Swedish pop artist released two new tracks, the tropical party jam “Cheap Thrills” and the Kanye West-produced “Reaper.” Both songs are great in their own right, the former being a funkadelic, dancehall-infused banger about giving zero fucks and “just having fun tonight,” and the latter being another crazy power ballad in the likes of 2014’s ubiquitous “Chandelier” and the more recent “Alive.” Even though many of the tracks off This is Acting were intended for other musicians, Sia utilizes her groundbreaking vocals and maximalist production to make each song as powerful as the next.
