It’s been two weeks since bonafide hitmakers David Guetta and Sia unleashed their latest joint anthem, “Flames.” Now, the duo have breathed new life into the release with a playful, action-packed video that’ll make you wonder if your sword skills are any match for Guetta’s kung-fu style.
In the clip, directed by Lior Molcho, Guetta plays an evil villain with magical powers and a heck of a menacing smirk. Under his direction, a group of ninjas kidnap three martial arts students and brutally kill their master, played by Danny Trejo. The trio of women are taken to Guetta’s lair, and a fierce battle between good and evil ensues. I won’t spoil it for you, but suffice to say, Sia’s empowering lyrics come to life as the women execute a counterattack for the ages (with a little help from Trejo’s spirit in the sky).
“Flames” marks the fourth collaboration for Sia and Guetta, following the 2011 mega-hit “Titanium,” 2012’s “She Wolf (Falling to Pieces),” and the Fetty Wap-featuring 2015 jam “Bang My Head.” Glad to see they’ve kept their chemistry alive. Now if only Sia would appear in one of their music videos already!
