This weeks Music Monday is a fab song The Greatest by Sia featuring American rapper Kendrick Lamar. The song itself is a mixture of electropop and tropical house and was written by Sia, Kendrick Lamar and Greg Kurstun who also produced it. The song is massively catchy, with a really powerful chorus that has an inspirational concept. One that carries a message of positivity and emphasises that we should make a difference and take a stand to be The Greatest. Something that becomes quite poignant when you watch the video as it’s said to be a tribute to the 2016 Orlando shooting. It stars some great young dancers, 49 to be exact with the main dancer being one of Sia’s favourites Maddie Ziegler who often features in her videos. The video on the whole is one of the best examples of choreography for a music video. The movement is delicate, yet contemporary. It also comes packed with idiosyncrasy, pain and the strangeness that we have become accustomed to in Sia’s music and her videos. There are some really lovely moments with Maddie showing off her dance skill.
