Sia said: "What’s funny is that I wrote this one song and gave it to Rihanna but then I had seller’s remorse because I was attached to it. I regretted it.

"Then she gave it back to me and I was relieved."

However, demand for her song didn’t stop there and Sia would have a further battle on her hands with Adele to keep Alive all for herself.

She said: "Then Adele heard it and asked if she could have it.

"I thought ‘Do I like it or do I like a million dollars?’ She cut it and it was so amazing.

"I’m a huge fan of her voice."

Sia has previously written songs for Beyoncé, Eminem and Rihanna but has recently become better known for her own singing with her top-ten single, Chandelier.
