'I realized just as soon as I was cutting it that it sounded a little bit too Brit-pop for her,' Sia explains why RiRi passed on the dancey tune.

AceShowbiz - Another preview for %cSia Furler%'s "This Is Acting" album has landed online. The Aussie singer/songwriter has just dropped the dancey EDM-tinged "Cheap Thrills" which she originally co-wrote with frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin for %cRihanna%.

Over the tropical beat, Sia sings about having a fun night out without having to spend a lot of money for it. "Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight/ I love cheap thrills," she declares in the chorus. "I don't need no money/ As long as I can feel the beat/ I don't need no money/ As long as I keep dancing."

Sia, the one behind Rihanna's 2012 hit "Diamonds", offered "Cheap Thrills" to the Bajan singer for her long-awaited eighth studio effort "Anti". "I realized just as soon as I was cutting it that it sounded a little bit too Brit-pop for her," Sia told Rolling Stone of why RiRi rejected the track.

"This Is Acting" features songs which Sia wrote for, but were rejected by, other artists like Rihanna, %cBeyonce Knowles% and %cAdele%. Having also been preceded by "Alive", "Bird Set Free" and "One Million Bullets", the album is slated to hit the shelves on January 29, 2016.
