"Move Your Body" is Sia's fourth single from her This is Acting album. The dance track follows "Alive," the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 "Cheap Thrills" with Sean Paul and "The Greatest" featuring Kendrick Lamar. As revealed in 2015, "Body" was written with Shakira in mind, but the Colombian superstar's team passed on the song. Like the rest of the material on Acting, Sia decided to record it for herself.
Sia penned "Move Your Body" with her longtime producer Greg Kurstin. On the new single mix, Kurstin washes over the track's tribal sounds with tropical beats. Among the colorful production, Sia paints a picture of music's power on a person. "Feel the rhythm in your system / This is heaven / I'm your only friend," she sings. Sia captures the cathartic feeling of a club and shakes things up with "Move Your Body" 2.0.
The single mix of "Move Your Body" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Sia's This is Acting album was released in Jan. 2016 and a deluxe edition followed a few months later.
