Ellie Goulding Is The Queen Of The Castle In Her New Video For “Close To Me” Featuring Diplo & Swae LeeNovember 14, 2018
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.
