Ellie Goulding Is The Queen Of The Castle In Her New Video For “Close To Me” Featuring Diplo & Swae Lee

November 14, 2018 By Jordan Miller

Ellie Goulding shared a new video for, “Close To Me,” featuring Diplo and Swae Lee.

Pop music 2018 needs Ellie Goulding, and she came through!

The UK singer-songwriter released a new tune titled “Close To Me.” It features production from Diplo and a rap from Swae Lee.

“Even though we both know we’re liars and we start each other’s fires / We just know that we’ll be alright,” Ellie purrs over a warm beat and dancey production (of course it features a warbly helium voice).

“Even though we’re kicked out the party ’cause we both hate everybody / We’re the ones they wanna be like.”

There’s also a video for the track. In it, Ellie serves high fashion as she makes her way around a castle in Budapest.

I’m not convinced our current music landscape needs another electro-tinged mid-tempo, but Ellie was on the trend before it became a go-to, so “Close To Me” is a triumph.
