Sia Furler doesn't think she is a particularly talented songwriter and says her success is down to quantity not quality
Sia Furler doesn't think she is a particularly talented songwriter.
Although the artist has written songs for a number of stars including Rihanna and Britney Spears, along with having her own successful music career, she believes her success is down to quantity not quality.
She explained to The Observer Music: "I love the idea of how fast can we make a song but I don't think that I'm necessarily like a super-talented songwriter. I think I'm just really productive. One out of 10 songs is a hit. So where a lot of people will spend three weeks on a song, I will write 10 in three weeks. Maybe the song that they sculpt is going to be just as successful as just one of the 10 that I wrote."
Sia also revealed that Rihanna recently chose four of her songs which the songwriter believes are "less commercial."
She said: "She chose four that she is interested in and I was surprised at her choices because she did not choose the obvious hits. What she seems to be attracted to at the moment is less commercial."
