Listen to “Reaper” the brand new track by Sia from her upcoming new album This Is Acting, out January 29. The track was co-written and produced by Kanye West. “Reaper” was originally intended for Rihanna’s upcoming album ANTI but is was scrapped. In fact, Sia’s entire new record it’s full of songs rejected by other A-list artists.
She recently told RollingStone:
Were all the songs from This Is Acting intentionally written for other artists?
“Yes, actually, I guess all of them were written with the intention of being for somebody else. But there is one I didn’t send to anybody called “One Million Bullets.” That one I liked — and I already had so much of the album completed — but I loved it and didn’t want to give it to anyone else. So that one I don’t think I sent to anyone else, but my memory’s terrible. There’s one that I went into a session with Kanye, to write for Rihanna [“Reaper], so that one was intended for her, but then I’m keeping that one.” “I feel like they’re hits, but nobody wanted them”
Take a listen!
