As the song continues to pick up steam, we've been thinking about how Sia wrote Beyoncé's "Pretty Hurts" [3] and wondering: what else has come from Sia? We've collected 14 songs that have been written, cowritten, and sometimes even performed by the Australian artist. Keep scrolling, and prepare for a few surprises.
