The king of covers
November 29th, 2012
Did you know that the Rihanna hit Diamonds was not actually written by Rihanna but co-written by the amazingly gifted Australian singer Sia? Not hard to imagine as Sia has been in many acts in her career collaborating on hits like Titanium with David Guetta and Wild Ones with Flo Rida. Benny Blanco, the other writer on the track commented on the work saying, “We’re sitting there trying to make records, and we finally just said, “Let’s just do something we like. Let’s make a hip-hop record with some really cool chords on it.” It didn’t sound Rihanna at all. We were more thinking of making a record that sounds like Kanye. Let’s make a record with a dope beat. So we did. Then Sia heard the track and instantly gravitated towards it.”
