Ellie Goulding takes a page out of Ed Sheeran’s playbook and puts on her dancing shoes much like how the “Thinking Out Loud” singer did for his visual. Both artists show off their contemporary SLASH ballroom moves.

Love Me Like You Do” is the second official music video from Fifty Shades of Grey, following on the heels of The Weeknd’s “Earned It” which debuted yesterday. Since The Weeknd snagged one of the movie’s stars, Dakota Johnson, to appear in his clip, I was expecting Jamie Dornan to show up in Goulding’s. Sadly, I’m left disappointed and the only images we see of him are clips from the movie. In fact, Ellie’s new video acts like a movie trailer with half the time devoted to incorporating film footage.

Whether the film adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel becomes a box office hit, I’m pretty certain the soundtrack will be a smash. Everything I’ve heard so far is fantastic. Ellie’s “Love Me Like You Do,” co-written by Max Martin and Tove Lo is destined to be a radio hit. Check out the visual below.

Meghan Trainor was supposed to help Gwen Stefani mentor her team during last season, but Christina Aguilera stepped in last second. No disrespect to the “All About That Bass” singer but I’m glad X-Tina popped up. It was great seeing two female Voice coaches teaming up. It got me even more excited for Christina’s return to her red swivel chair. Anyone else stoked?

Trainor has just been revealed as one of the mentors for The Voice Season 8. Reportedly, she’ll assist reigning winning coach Blake Shelton when the NBC singing competition returns.

Nick Jonas who appeared last season to sing his hit song “Jealous” will also share his insight with the aspiring singers. The Kingdom actor joins Team Christina Aguilera. Find out who’s paired up with Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams below.

Absolutely flawless!!! But did you expect anything less than exceptional from a collaboration between Ellie Goulding and prolific hit maker producer Max Martin. As you know, Martin has been responsible for crafting hits for Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Britney Spears to name a few.

Goulding debuted “Love Me Like You Do” on Capital Radio (UK) earlier today. The mid-tempo track will be featured on the soundtrack for the highly-anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey.

Joining Martin on co-writing duties on the future hit are Ilya, Tove Lo and Savan Kotecha. Based on early Twitter feedback, fans are responding to Ellie’s latest. Give it a listen below.

When you think of an Ellie Goulding track, you think of her ethereal vocals on a touching ballad or club-ready dance anthem. Clearly, there is more than meets the eye. The 27-year-old Brit has an inner gangsta lurking in that demure frame. “Bitch, I got it now,” she declares in the hook. And boy does she ever.

Heavy Crown” is absolutely brilliant. I’m surprised this isn’t the lead single off Iggy Azalea’s Reclassified due out on November 24. It’s menacing, powerful and anthemic. The juxtaposition of their contrasting styles is absolutely riveting. This needs to be the next official single. If not only to see these two lovely ladies star in the accompanying music video.

By far, this is the best new duet on Azalea’s reissue of her debut LP. “Beg For It,” featuring MØ is solid, but not nearly as refreshing as this. And don’t even get me started on “Trouble” featuring Jennifer Hudson.

That’s disappointing and mediocre on all levels. On paper, you’d think the duo would create magic. But alas not. So far, Iggy and J-Hud are 0-2 in my books with their collabos. Someone please give them a track worthy of their talents.

Thankfully, there’s “Heavy Crown.” This has massive potential to be another smash for the Aussie femcee. I’m curious to see if she can follow up her amazing breakthrough year in 2015. Ponder that thought while you check out her latest below.

Since its initial release in 1984, the fundraising single “Do They Know It’s Christmas” has become a Yuletide tradition. For its 30th anniversary, Bob Geldof has once again enlisted a roster of UK and Irish pop royalty to participate. It’s the fourth version recorded overall. This time proceeds will go to raise money for Ebola relief.

When the latest version was announced, Adele was rumored to be involved. Sadly, the “Rolling In The Deep” singer was nowhere to be found during the studio session. However, there were still plenty of stars who lent their vocals for the charity single. Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, One Direction, Emeli Sandi were just a few who donated their time. Veterans Bono and Chris Martin once again supported Geldof. They participated in the first version and Band Aid 20 respectively.

Check out the new video below. I’m a little surprised Rita Ora received so much camera time and on the flip side, so little for One Direction and Sam Smith.

When Bob Geldof and Midge Ure initially organized UK singers for “Do They Know It’s Christmas” to raise money to relieve those affected by the famine in Africa, they couldn’t have possibly predicted that the charity single would become a holiday staple. Not only did it become a Yuletide favorite, but it also inspired similar efforts from American and Canadian artists with “We Are The World” and “Tears Are Not Enough” respectively.

Since it’s initial release back in 1984, Geldof has released a couple of other recordings to celebrate different anniversaries. One was released in 1989 and 2004 to celebrate the single’s fifth and 20th anniversary. To coincide with it’s 30th year, Geldof is planning the fourth recording. He’s enlisted Grammy-winning producer Paul Epworth to produce the latest cover. This time proceeds will go to raise money for Ebola relief.

As per usual, a roster of UK and Irish pop royalty have been asked to participate. Sam Smith, Adele, One Direction, Jessie Ware, Chris Martin, Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Emeli Sande, Olly Murs, Elbow, Paloma Faith, Jessie Ware, Sinead O’Connor, Queen‘s Roger Taylor, Fuse ODG, Jimmy Napes, Foals, Underworld and Bono will all take part. The U2 frontman also lent his vocals for the original recording. The new version is scheduled to drop on Monday, November 17. Until then, check out the three other previous recordings to refresh your memory. Nothing beats the original in my opinion.

Their first collaboration, “I Need Your Love,” yielded worldwide success. Wisely, Calvin Harris tapped Ellie Goulding again for another track off his new album Motion. “Outside” could easily pass for a 2.0 version of their previous hit. The EDM track doesn’t sound the same but definitely has a similar vibe. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it as they say.

The accompanying music video just premiered. While the track is officially the Scottish DJ’s, it’s all about Goulding who dominates screen time by a mile. Ellie sings outside a trailer park while the clip tells a story of exes contemplating whether or not breaking up was the wise decision. I’m not sure what the floating motorcycle is supposed to symbolize, but it’s a fine-looking video. Check it out below.

Days after teasing “Together” featuring Gwen Stefani, the Scottish DJ unveils another track from his forthcoming album Motion. Calvin Harris once again teams up with Ellie Goulding whom he previously collaborated with on the smash “I Need Your Love” off his smash LP 18 Months.

What’s his new track like? Truthfully, “Outside” could easily pass for “I Need Your Love 2.0.” The EDM track doesn’t sound the same but definitely has a similar vibe. I don’t blame Harris for going down a similar path. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I will say though, it’s probably more pop-ish than the tracks Calvin has released off Motion thus far. Give it a listen below.
