Sia Recruits Kendrick Lamar for ‘The Greatest’

Sia has shared a new music video for her single 'The Greatest.' The song features Kendrick Lamar, but neither his verse or his face appear in the visuals. Directed by Sia and Daniel Askill, the video does feature, however, longtime Sia collaborator Maddie Ziegler.

Australian pop star Sia released her seventh studio album earlier this year, but it looks like she’s already gearing up for something else.

Earlier this week, Sia released a new song entitled ‘The Greatest,’ alongside a video featuring her frequent collaborator Maddie Ziegler.

What’s more interesting about the track itself, however, is that the version released to streaming services features a verse from Kendrick Lamar.

Sia is known for her high-profile collaborations, but a verse from Kendrick still comes as a surprise.

Don’t give up, I won’t give up
Don’t give up, no no no

I’m free to be the greatest, I’m alive
I’m free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest

You can listen to the original audio with Kendrick Lamar below:

This is such an empowering song with a ‘you-can’t’stop-me’ chorus and equally strong verses from both Sia and Kendrick.
