VIDEO: This Oud Version of Sia's 'Cheap Thrills' is All You Need to Hear Today

Yemeni-American artist makes a musical gem, mixing the summer vibe of 'Cheap Thrills' with the ancient sounds of the oud.

A video of aspiring Yemeni-American oudist Ahmed Alshaiba mastering Sia's Cheap Thrills on his oud is going viral on Facebook, reaping over 110,000 views as the Arab musician crafts a masterpiece out of the hit song using the oriental instrument.

For those who have never stumbled upon one of Ahmed Alshaiba's astounding videos, he's a young musician who makes amazing covers with his goosebump-inducing oud, from Western pop to traditional eastern genres. 

This time Alshaiba took on Cheap Thrills, a tune one would never envisage being played with a traditional oud sound, but as is the case with each of his covers, he made it utter magic. Give it a listen, it will give you the thrills. Pun intended.
