We may not get to see much of her face, but we have been hearing a ton from Sia. We have heard snippets of her The Mamas & the Papas cover during the trailer of the upcoming San Andreas film (starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), but the Internet, being the Internet, has produced the full rendition.

Several drunk girls at a party “WOOOO” in unison as soon as its instantly recognizable introductory “Duh-da-duh-da-duh-da-da-doh” ripples over the speakers. It’s not even a few days into April, and this has already become the “Blurred Lines” of 2015, minus the glaring problematic lyrics and Marvin Gaye lawsuit.Continue reading »
