Did Beyonce Enlist Sia for Her New Album?
If the world wasn't already super excited for a new Beyonce album, it will be now. Since Bey never settles for less than the best, it's only natural that her collaborators for her fifth studio record would be the cream of the crop -- but that doesn't make a few of the names floating around any less surprising, including Australian songbird Sia.
As we previously reported, Beysus is working with her hubby Jay-Z 's bestie, Kanye West, on her latest effort, as well as producer Hit-Boy and OneRepublic frontman and songwriter Ryan Tedder (who previously helped pen her hit 'Halo').
It makes sense for Bey to stick with what works, but the superstar has never been content to rest on her laurels. Bey loves to experiment, which lends some credence to new rumors that she may be working with both Sia and frequent Dev and Far East Movement collaborators the Cataracs.
The Cataracs hinted about a collaboration on their Twitter, writing, "Off to New York! Unfortunately I'm not allowed to divulge why but... It's big! With a capital b. Does her name start with b? Who's to say." The tweet has since been removed, but remember: Screenshots are forever!
Further, the Cataracs tweeted a photo of Sia, who was also in New York (where Bey is recording). Sia has expressed a strong desire to work with Queen Bey in the past, telling MTV, "Well, there's only one song left for this album, so I probably won't get on this album, but hopefully the next one. That's my dream, that's my goal." With that in mind, take a gander at the awesome Aussie's tweets from Aug. 6 and 7:
I have a lot of love for the world tonight.

It sure sounds to us like Sia is on Bey's followup to '4'!
