Last Thursday, a surprise Beyoncé power ballad was released. And this Thursday—not to top it or anything—Sia released her own: 'Alive', a single from her new album, 'This Is Acting'.
The song was originally written for Adele, who rejected it last-minute, according to Billboard. 'It's about [Adele's] life, so I now sing a song from her perspective,' Sia said in a recent interview. And it's clearly Adele's loss, Sia's gain. The song is an incredible life pep rally.
