WOAH. This massive collaboration is a display of some of the biggest powerhouse artists in their respective genre’s. Diplo and Ellie Goulding team up to create an amazing, chill track with a steady beat behind Ellie’s amazing lyrics. The song is an absolute vibe throughout, with the beat not being super intrusive or having a hard EDM style drop to it.
“Close to Me” is another track that is more or less a love story. This has definitely been the trend recently, writing songs about loved ones or separation create a special vibe and one that of course is heavily relatable.
I’m a huge fan of Swae Lee (from Rae Sremmurd obviously), but his verse here might have been unnecessary. With such a big vocalist like Ellie Goulding hopping on a Diplo beat, that’s really all you need for a successful radio hit. Diplo + whoever usually turns out being a smash to be honest.
