is like “writing camp, essentially. She flies us all in and puts us all up. We all live in a house together—like five producers and five topline writers.”Adele
“Everyone would have dinner together every night and break off into different rooms and work on music.”
Rather than work together during one big group session, Bey “visits each room and will contribute and let us know what she's feeling and what she's not feeling. Lyrically, melodically, anything. She's very Frankenstein when she comes to songs. She'll say, ‘I like the verse from that. I like the pre-chorus from that. Can you try mixing it with that?’”
“Well, she's extremely talented, so it was really easy. It's funny because both of us are quite dominant because we are both skillful at our jobs of songwriting or singing.”Rihanna and Kanye
“It was a very interesting process working with her because I felt insecure because I didn't want to dominate because it's clear to me that she's the dominant party,” Sia continued. “When I work with artists, I basically check my ego at the door and I become their bitch, and I'm completely comfortable in that role. Sometimes I'll steamroll them, and I'll realize I'm doing it. Because I'm so fast, for me, it's all channels. Words come out and it's just like, ‘bluh.’ It comes out, and I'll just write the lyrics. I don't overthink it.”
“[Producers will] entice me into a session by saying, ‘Rihanna will definitely be there’ or ‘Kanye will definitely be there,’ but it's hilarious because I turn up and, almost always, they never come. So I went into the studio to write for Rihanna with Kanye and neither of them showed up and stayed for less than an hour. . . .There were notes from Kanye, and I can't even remember what they were.”
Sia's new album 'This is acting' will be out in Jan.29 and its a compilation of rejected songs she wrote for A-list artists. We can't wait to hear it.
