Next month, the United States will have the opportunity to check out Sia’s new film Music, a musical drama that stars Kate Hudson, Maddie Ziegler, and Leslie Odom Jr. Produced and written by the Australian star, Music is centered around drug dealer Zu and her autistic half-sister Music, who Zu now has guardianship over following the death of her grandmother. If it’s anything like Sia’s music videos, you can expect nothing short of the over-the-top awesomeness that she’s become well-known for.

In addition to the film, Music is also being accompanying by an official soundtrack — also courtesy of Sia — that boasts 14 tailor-made cuts for fans to enjoy. One of those tracks is the funky single “Hey Boy,” which is produced by Jesse Shatkin and sees Sia chasing after a particular love interest. This week, that pop-heavy number receives a remix that adds a verse from Burna Boy, which gives a dope perspective from the other person:

“Tell me, have you ever been with a breda, wey go take you through any weather? Start drying up he make you wetter, so me ting set off, you won’t find no one to do you better/

If you come closer now, babe, make I put you for my roster, babe, put me weapon inna your holster, babe, your last lover was a joker, babe..../”

Last year, Sia revealed that, in addition to Music, this year will also see the release of her forthcoming ninth studio album Reasonable Woman. That project will follow the 2017 holiday LP Everyday Is Christmas, as well as the massively successful 2016 release This Is Acting, which has since landed on charts and received a plethora of Gold and Platinum plaques around the globe.

Press play on the animated visual for “Hey Boy (Remix)” below. Music — both the film and soundtrack — makes landfall here February 12.
