Australian crooner Sia, who is famous for hiding her face with huge wigs in order to maintain her privacy, has a new motion-picture inspired album dropping on February 12, 2021. The album titled ‘Music’ is made for her debut feature-length film with the same name.

Now, in order to promote the album, the multiple award-winning singer, who has belted out hits like ‘Chandelier’, ‘Cheap Thrills’, ‘Titanium’ with David Guetta and ‘Diamonds’ with Rihanna,’ will now be dropping a brand new version of her already released song ‘Hey Boy’ featuring rapper Burna Boy. The songstress took to her official Twitter account to share the big news with her fans. She shared an animated poster along with the caption, “Pucker up Kiss mark "Hey Boy" ft @burnaboy song + video out Thursday - Team Sia.” Burna Boy also took to Twitter after a gap of few hours to share the good news with close to his five million followers. He captioned the post as, “’HEY BOY’ @Siafeaturing Myself dropping Thursday. Definitely One of my Favourites.”

Release date

Sia’s movie ‘Music’ has been paired with a 14-track album inspired by the motion film, which will hit the internet on February 12, 2021. However, the new version of the song ‘Hey Boy’, which is very much part of the new album, will hit the internet on January 14, 2021.

Sia and the 29-years-old hip-hop artist shared a common artwork for their collaboration. The cover art is a funky and a futuristic poster which features both the artistes in a super-cool animated avatar. Sia hides her eyes with her hair in the poster just like she does in her real life and looks confident and sexy while holding the mic. Burna Boy, on the other hand, has been given the avatar of a funky and a very tall cartoon animal. The animated avatar of Burna Boy looks dapper as he dons a bright orange suit with a heavy gold chain that says his name in bold letters.

The singer only dropped four songs out of the 14-track album earlier. She had announced the album in November with the release of the song ‘Hey Boy’. Singles like ‘Together’, ‘Courage to Change’ and ‘Saved My Life’ are also part of the project.

The collaboration of Sia and Burna Boy came as a surprise to a lot of users on social media. Their loyal fans stormed to Twitter to express their excitement.
