Brooke Candy has publicly had her fight with substance abuse, and Sia who helped her to kick the habit, has made no secret of her past struggles with drug and alcohol abuse, with massive hits to draw inspiration from those dark moments.
“I was on a lot of drugs, and [Sia] helped me kick drugs,” Candy told Fashion Unfiltered back in August. “She found me and e-mailed me when I was squatting in this punk house. I was basically homeless and I was hustling like ten different jobs, and she said, ‘You are so weird. I want to write a song for you.’ Then I met her and she was like, ‘F–k a song. I’m going to do your whole album, and I’m going to help you navigate this disgusting fame industry.'”
Accordingly, “Living Out Loud,” is a collaboration between the two which doubles as the lead single off of Brooke’s forthcoming debut Daddy Issues out this spring. The track hones in on those vices and celebrates their perseverance.
