Ellie Goulding’s Most Fabulous Music Videos To Date
At the 2014 Brit Awards, Goulding was victorious in the British Female Solo Artist category. Following the release of her third studio album, 2015’s Deliriumshe was honored with her first Grammy nomination, for Best Pop Solo Performance for the single love me like you do. Now fans are looking forward to the accompanying tour for her fourth studio album, 2020 brightest bluewhich starts in October.
As she shines on the cover of the November issue, rewatch some of Goulding’s most memorable music videos below:
Charmingly simple and sentimentally sweet, the video for Goulding’s cover of Your song was more of a girl-next-door than a musical diva – letting the singer’s soulful voice and genuine charm shine through. Extra points for the cameo of a very adorable kitten.
One of Goulding’s early hits, the whimsical and romantic video by starry eyes announced his arrival as an exciting young talent on the UK music scene. With some nostalgic 2010s fashion moments and space graphics, one thing that isn’t dated is the song itself – still as uplifting and catchy as ever.
Everything can happen
Launching a bold new look for Goulding (hello, pink hair), as well as marking his most theatrical video to date, the video for Everything can happen was the perfect complement to the 2012 hit. Featuring dramatic coastal scenery, ethereal costumes, fake blood, a car crash, and even Goulding flying through the air in a harness, it racked up over 75 million views on YouTube.
I need your love
Pretty much everything Calvin Harris touches becomes chart-topping catnip, and his collaboration with Goulding on I need your love proved equally irresistible. The accompanying video featured a sunny, evasive adventure that had fans wanting to go on holiday with the superstar Scottish DJ and young British singer.
love me like you do
More whimsical and introspective in tone than a number of Goulding’s previous hits (though still with that signature dance beat), the video for love me like you do presented the singer in a decidedly more mature and contemplative light. Interspersed with contemporary dancers and scenes from 2015 Fifty shades of Grey adaptation (in which the song features), it is also full of drama and sexual tension. And fans were certainly thrilled, with the video garnering over 2,000 million views on YouTube to date.
To be able to
One of the hits from his latest album, “Brightest Blue”, To be able to proves that Goulding makes a sultry siren as well as a rising ingenue. With intimate camera work, polished choreography and glamorous lingerie, it’s all grown-up Goulding – leaving no doubt that she’s the one with the power.
