The ending sticks with you.

Sia has teamed up with Kendrick Lamar and frequent collaborator Maddie Ziegler for a new song and a poignant music video as a tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting.

“The Greatest” is more on the optimistic side, and Ziegler—donning a darker wig this time as well as rainbows on her face—shows a range of emotions as she moves with other young dancers in unity once they’re set free. They have free range, and once again the immeasurable talent is on full display.

But the video, which features exactly 49 dancers (the same number of people who died during the shooting), is also equally haunting. The ending sticks with you.

Lamar’s section of “The Greatest” is cut from the music video, but the full version of the song can be streamed on Spotify.
