Sia surprised fans with the brand new single, “The Greatest” over the weekend as well as a brand new music video starring the talented Maddie Ziegler.
In the video, Ziegler is back in the abandoned and broken down looking house she danced her way through in “Chandelier.” Only this time, the Sia mini-me is joined by dozens of kids lead by Ziegler through the dark house.
“The Greatest” video starts and ends with Ziegler in tears, wiping colorful paint across her face and then dancing through the house trying to escape, “Running outta breath but I got stamina . . . don’t give up, I won’t give up.”
In the Spotify version, Lamar adds a verse about diversity, “I transform with pressure, I’m hands-on with effort/ I fell twice before, my bounce back was special/ Let downs will get you and the critics will test you/ But the strongest survive another scar may bless you,” which according to MTV News hints “The Greatest” is ” Sia’s response to the shooting in Orlando that claimed 49 lives at a gay club earlier this year.”
Maddie Ziegler without a doubt is amazingly talented and as always delivers a breathtaking performance in Sia’s latest.
