Music videos consisting mostly of concert footage aren’t really my thing. IMHO, they’re extremely lazy and would rather get a cleverly-crafted lyric video with killer graphics. Love Ellie Goulding, but this just feels like a half-assed effort. Did the 29-year-old Brit use up all her label’s budget on her previous videos?

Something In The Way You Move” is the third single release off Delirium. The uptempo track is one of the standouts and has been steadily climbing the charts in several territories. It deserves better than this video treatment. With that being said, the footage featuring Golding is beautifully shot, but still. Check it out below and share your thoughts.

The third volume Girls soundtrack hit iTunes earlier this week. Songs from the HBO show’s 3rd, 4th and the forthcoming 5th season are included in the latest compilation. One of the artists who contributed a track is none other than Ellie Goulding.

The British singer delivers a breakup track titled “Here’s To Us.” The 29-year-old sings about her ex-boyfriend who’s now found another love. We’ve all been there, right? Check out the heartfelt song below.

Tis the season for giving and Ellie Goulding is taking that to heart. The 28-year-old singer shows her appreciation to her fans by recording a holiday track and releasing it as a free download.

Goulding definitely has plenty to be thankful for in 2015. She just scored her first-ever Grammy nomination, thanks to her hit “Love Me Like You Do.” Her recent album, Delirium, was both critically and commercially well-received.

Check out her holiday track below. Given her angelic voice, it’s not surprising her rendition of “O Holy Night” is magical and heavenly. Fingers crossed a full-length Christmas album is in her future plans. It would do gangbusters.

Jordan Roseman aka DJ Earworm released his first original track weeks ago, but today he returned to his bread and butter. His annual United State of Pop video mashup, highlighting the top hits of the year, is hands down my favorite. Typically, he chooses the top 25 tracks based off the Billboard charts. This year, he went a step further and mashed up the 50 biggest hits.

The five-minute masterpiece titled “50 Shades of Pop” is “more eclectic mix than it was five years ago,” Earworm explains to Billboard about the diversity of tunes that blew up the charts this year. With that being said, Taylor Swift has a whopping four tracks in the mix. Close behind is The Weekend with three. Other artists with multiple offerings are Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Fetty Wap, Meghan Trainor and Ed Sheeran.

He even made room for Adele’s massive late 2015 entry, “Hello.” If you hated this year’s song of the summer, fear not, OMI’s “Cheerleader” is only shown/heard briefly. Check out this year’s offering below. It’s his best one in recent memory.

Rihanna was set to headline the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but it appears that’s not the case anymore. The lingerie brand announced that Ellie Goulding is in and RiRi is out. The “On My Mind” singer will join previously announced performers The Weeknd and Selena Gomez.

People‘s sources reveal Rihanna canceled her appearance to finish up her album. Ummmm, I’m sorry but that sounds like major BS. So far, the “Bitch Better Have My Money” singer’s forthcoming eighth studio album has been a hot mess. That’s what you get when you enlist Kanye West to executive produce your project.

If that’s the true reason why Rihanna canceled, it’s just rude. The annual extravaganza tapes in New York next week. Producers must’ve been frantic trying to find a replacement. Thankfully they did. Goulding will slay it. Too bad producers didn’t have more time. They probably would’ve incorporated a bondage theme if Ellie sang her Fifty Shades of Grey track, “Love Me Like You Do.”

What do you think of this last minute change? Weigh in below.

Ellie Goulding Debuts New Single ‘Army’

In: Donovan, Music

Leading up to the release of her third studio album, out November 6, Ellie Goulding has been sharing a bunch of buzz singles. The latest, “Army,” is actually her next official single off Delirium. Once again, the team of Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Ali Payami are behind the mid-tempo track.

Among the tracks she’s dropped so far from this era, “Army” ranks pretty up there. It’s quintessential Goulding and is a bit reminiscent of “Love Me Like You Do.” Check it out below, along with “Lost & Found” which she released last week, but I hadn’t written about yet. The boppy folk-tinged track is interesting to say the least. Not my favorite.

Who knew Ellie Goulding had comedic skills? The 28-year-old English singer teams up with Aussie comedy group Skit Box to poke fun at activewear and the people who take the style too seriously. It’s actually quite brilliant in its simplicity. I won’t spoil the parody for you, so definitely give it a view below.

In other Ellie-related news, she debuted a new track off her forthcoming album, Delirium. As sensational as her current single “On My Mind” is, I love “Something In The Way You Move” much more. The Greg Kurstin-produced track has Goulding’s signature ethereal vocals gliding ever so perfectly over the killer beat. This has smash written all over it. Check out the dance lyric vid for the hot new track below.

It’s definitely the year of the vengeful gun-toting femme fatale. Ellie Goulding is the latest pop star to exact revenge on someone who has wronged her. The music video for her infectious Max Martin-produced single “On My Mind” is in the vein of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.”

Goulding with the assistance of her chola-dressed bestie settles the score on her abusive and controlling beau. After galloping through Las Vegas, the two end up at his office to duct tape him and steal all his money.

The Emil Nava-directed clip is a bit random, especially the inclusion of old-school cartoon clips, but it’s an entertaining watch. Give it a view below.
