The first thing I'll discuss in that new thread is "Titanium" by David Guetta ft Sia.
How did it pass? It was all Sia singing by herself! No one even rapped in it!
I think it was helped by two factors:both Guetta and Sia were following up on two big singles (Starships/Wild Ones). Familiarity goes along way sometimes.
Actually, even more confusing than that is Calvin Harris "Feels So Close" making it huge.
And is Sia really as known as people here think? I'd say that Flo Rida is the more recognizable artist in "Wild Ones" while the female hook
makes the song easily recognizable (but I'm sure a lot of people don't know who actually sings the hook). But I never thought this could lead to a pure sounding dance track with Sia singing by herself on it. It sounds straight up dance not only lyrically, but also vocally. I guess the "David Guetta" name being attached to it does help to some degree nowadays.
