Sia Furler, or better known as her first name Sia, was a no-name to us like most artists. Just a blink of an eye in a year, she's achieved international success and has great wide-ranged success on music as well. Sia co-wrote Titanium, which was hugely popular around the world and her first collaboration with David Guetta, sparked her fame to grow. And she didn't just stop there. Wild Ones, which was off Flo Rida's Wild Ones album, also achieved international success. Of course, Sia was the singer on the record during the chorus. Rihanna's upcoming seventh album, which will also include the first single off it, named Diamonds (which I will be reviewing later), also included works by Sia who wrote the lyrics and melody of it. Lastly, Kesha's new album, Warrior, has been confirmed that Sia will also be on the record. Sia has been in the music industry for too long, and to get international status now is pretty much better than nothing. She's not only known for these few hits, so look her up when you've got the time.
David Guetta is pretty much a music industry gem. Releasing his new album, Nothing But The Beat 2.0 after the highly successful predecessor, will have new collaborations including Sia (here), Akon and Ne-Yo. And while Titanium is still hitting the record stations and radio, it was a wise move for Guetta to reintroduce Sia with a new song, She Wolf. Let's get to it.
She Wolf starts off with David Guetta's signature beats, while Sia's authentic voice kick-starts the vocals. The beats, sounding similar to Titanium, worked perfectly as Sia's lyrics washed some of the raw nerves away. 'A shot in the dark, a past lost in space / Where do I start, the past and the chase / You hunted me down, like a wolf / A predator / I felt like a deer in love lights'. As always, you can hear the intensity in Sia's voice as she sings the verse. Sia is no ordinary singer with just a pop status. She can sing, and she does it superbly well in She Wolf. 'You loved me, and I froze in time / Hungry, for that flesh of mine / But I can't compete, with a she wolf was has brought me to my knees / What do you see in those yellow eyes? / Cause' I'm falling to pieces'. Sia is a vocal superpower. She really is. And once again, we almost forgot David Guetta's on the record. With sublime synchronization, he kick starts his dance floor anthem with a hit. The bass, the synth and everything else fits perfectly well. It's normal if you get up to dance at this stage of the song. Perfectly normal.
As always, the relations and the meaning of the song sounded astute. People are gonna' complain it's a mix of these and that, but truly, it is a masterclass in my opinion. Just like Titanium, She Wolf is going to hit everywhere. A dance club anthem with notes in it like a stack of paper.
ORIGINALITY: 9/10 - It's D. Guetta. He's the man. He just does what no other DJ can do and he just does it so perfectly. I don't know, he's got the G-Factor.
SOUND: 9/10 - It's an alternative club banger after Titanium. You can just hear it pumping at your nearest club house.
LYRICS: 9/10 - Well written, well sang. That's all I can say.
OVERALL RATINGS: 27/30 - Not comparing it with Titanium, She Wolf can still hold it together long enough, I believe. This song probably going to tip the scale and I see it scoring even better than Titanium, especially when Sia is much more known to the world now than she was before. Play it for days people, it's already on My Playlist.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
