Sia may be one of the most prolific singer/songwriters of recent years, but she is still waiting to win her first Grammy Award after five losses (one for “Wild Ones” in 2013 and four for “Chandelier” in 2015). This year, she has her best-ever chance with “Cheap Thrills,” one of the biggest hits of the summer.
Over the years, Sia has made a name for herself as an acclaimed vocalist and as a hit-maker for other high-profile performers and has won eight ARIA Awards (the Australian equivalent of the Grammys.
“Cheap Thrills” (featuring Sean Paul) achieved double platinum sales stateside and was her first number one on the US Hot 100 Billboard charts. It is her best shot to claim that overdue Grammy that eluded her two years ago when “Chandelier” lost Song of the Year and Record of the Year (to “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith) and Pop Solo Performance and Music Video (to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams). According to our exclusive odds, “Cheap Thrills” is currently ranked third in Song of the Year (with 9/1 odds) and Record of the Year (15/2 odds) behind “Hello” by Adele and “Formation” by Beyoncé.
