  • This motivational pop tune is a collaboration between David Guetta and Sia. It marks the fourth time the duo have worked together on a Guetta track, following "Titanium," "She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)," "The Whisperer" and the Fetty Wap-assisted "Bang My Head."

    The pair also collaborated on "Wild One Two," a remix of Flo Rida's hit single, "Wild Ones" and a revamp of Sia's Fifty Shades Darker song "Helium."

    "'Titanium' is still one of the tracks I am proudest of and Sia is one of my favorite artists to work with," said Guetta. "She's a great songwriter and has an amazing voice. I'm just super excited that we get to release another track together."
  • "Flames" is an inspirational anthem that finds Sia singing about overcoming struggles.

    So my love, keep on running
    You gotta get through today
    There my love, keep on running
    Gotta keep those tears at bay
    Oh, my love, don't stop burning
    Gonna send them up in flames
    In flames


    Sia is offering words of encouragement to a loved one who is going through a rough time.
  • While "Flames" doesn't have a huge chorus like Guetta's previous collaboration with Sia, "Titanium," he still finds the song very interesting: He told Billboard: "It's so vibey, and the beat is really funky, and I like it a lot."
