Sia Swings Her “Chandelier” Into The Top 10

This isn’t the first time Sia has appeared in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, but it’s the first time she’s done so as a lead artist. This week sees the Australian singer-songwriter’s lead 1000 Forms Of Fear single “Chandelier” zip up to #9. The song has been steadily climbing since the premiere of its touching music video in the spring (and, in the process, has become a MTV Video Music Awards nominee for Video Of The Year).

Sia’s previous appearances as a featured vocalist in the Top 10 came with both David Guetta‘s “Titanium” (#7) and Flo Rida‘s “Wild Ones” in 2012. She also co-penned Rihanna‘s chart-topping “Diamonds” and Ne-Yo‘s “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)” — two more that came out of what now appears to have been a very prolific songwriting period between 2011 and 2012.

At any rate, here’s to your first bonafide Top 10 single by you and you alone, Sia!
