If you keep up with pop culture, you’ve definitely heard Sia (and seen her, usually with her face covered a blunt-cut wig.) What you might not know, however, is that the Australian singer—whose full name is Sia Furler— is also a top-notch songwriter, having churned out hits for a staggering array of musicians including Rihanna, Beyoncé, Ne-Yo, Oh Land, and Celine Dion.

Sia’s songs share a sweeping, anthemic quality—all of which could easily be sung by the 38-year-old herself (and some have been, though not in an official capacity.) Below, we’ve rounded up 20 songs you never knew were written or co-written by Sia.

1. “Diamonds” by Rihanna
Released: 2012
Sia told the New York Times that she wrote the dramatic “Diamonds” in 14 minutes, and was shocked that Rihanna chose to stick to her exact inflections when recording the hit. Listen to Sia sing it herself here.
