Beyonce-Pretty_Hurts-music_video

Pretty Hurts” is the fourth single and music video from American R&B singer Beyonce‘s fifth studio album titled, Beyoncé.

The Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler wrote the song in collaboration with Ammo (credited as Joshua Coleman) and Beyoncé, while the production was handled by Ammo and Beyoncé.

“Pretty Hurts” is a smoky pop and neo soul song “with speechy lyrics about the tyranny of the beauty industry”, intended as a self-empowerment anthem as Beyoncé sings negatively of beauty stereotypes: “Brush your hair / Fix your teeth / What you wear / Is all that matters”. Beyoncé sings about “the fatal consequences that our common pursuit of the perfect body can have”.

To promote the single, Beyoncé launched a new site in April 2014 titled whatispretty.com, which stated: “How do you define pretty? Upload a photo or video to Instagram tagged #WhatisPretty that captures what the word means to you.”

“Pretty Hurts” was initially written by Australian singer Sia Furler. Furler subsequently sent the song to Katy Perry and Rihanna, who both ultimately passed on recording it. Furler then proceeded to send it to Beyoncé, who knew immediately that she wanted to record it.

“Chandelier” was released on March 17th 2014 through Monkey Puzzle Records, under exclusive license to RCA Records. MuuMuse described the song as one of Sia’s “most full-bodied productions to date, equipped with a striding beat and something that sounds less like a traditional pop chorus than an explosive, off-the-walls exercise in vocal acrobatics that only Sia could ever pull off”. Popjustice said the song’s chorus “ends up spiraling off in such an epic direction that it sounds, near the end, like Sia’s head is about to fly right off.”
