It is an electropop song, featuring electronica and reggae influences. Lyrically, the song has a melancholic theme, detailing the demoralization and rationalization of alcoholism through the typical thought process of a “party girl”.

Commercially, the single was very successful and it charted within the top five of record charts in countries including Australia, Norway, France, Scotland, and New Zealand.

The track was certified double platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) and Platinum by the Recorded Music NZ (RMNZ).

A music video for the song was directed by Sia and Daniel Askill, while it was choreographed by Ryan Heffington. It features eleven-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler. Sia, alongside Ziegler, performed “Chandelier” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

It reached #1 in Israel, and #2 in Australia, the Wallonia region of Belgium, and France.
