This advert by Lancôme promotes their new IDÔLE fragrance with American actress, model and singer Zendaya.

The music in the advert
Music: Unstoppable | Artist : Sia
The music in the 2019 Lancôme IDÔLE advert is the 2016 song ‘Unstoppable’ by Australian singer-songwriter Sia. The track is taken from Sia’s seventh studio album ‘This Is Acting’. The album which included songs such as ‘Move Your Body’ and ‘Alive’ performed very well. The deluxe version of the album included the hit single ‘The Greatest’.
Sia’s music is popular in the TV commercial world with the Miss Dior advert starring actress Natalie Portman which features her 2014 hit ‘Chandelier’. Also, a recent TV campaign trailer by the BBC for the extraordinary wildlife series Seven Worlds One Planet featured a collaboration between Sia and German film score composer Hans Zimmer with ‘Out There’.
