By now most of you have probably heard David Guetta’s new single “Titanium”, either as the official Sia original or the scrapped Mary J. Blige version. After floating around the web for a few weeks, the song is now on iTunes, and it’s blowing up like crazy.
As of this posting, “Titanium” is currently #2 on French iTunes and No. 6 on Aussie iTunes. But it’s not just the artists home countries where the song is doing big things; “Titanium” is No. 5 on iTunes Spain, No. 5 in Germany, No. 7 in the Netherlands, and No. 9 in Greece. I’m sure it’s also slaying many other countries too, but I do not have the time nor the patience to search through iTunes any longer.
The point is, the song’s about to be a smash. Normally, news of a David Guetta song topping the charts would be nothing out of the ordinary, but as far as Sia is concerned, who not only sings on “Titanium” but also wrote it, this is the most successful single of her almost fifteen year career.
“It’s amazing that 40 minutes of my life and zero promo turned into my most successful song to date,” she tweeted earlier. “I should write more songs intended for others.“
This collaboration marks another step into the mainstream for the 35-year-old, after she wrote several tracks from Christina Aguilera’s ill-fated Bionic. Her next project is writing on the new Adam Lambert album, which is due out later this year.
Go Sia; get those big fat royalty cheques!
UPDATE: It’s top 30 on US iTunes!
