In late October, the three extremely talented and musically gifted minds of Ellie Goulding, Diplo, and Swae Lee joined forces to drop “Close to Me” a powerful and euphoric pop song. “Close to Me” is Goulding’s first original track since 2016, and she’s only grown more crafted since her hiatus. The track quickly blew up and found its way into radio shows, playlists, and live sets all over the world. To follow up to the massive success of the track, the three released the official music video for “Close to Me” late last month, and it’s just as much alluring as it is dazzling.
For this week’s Watch it Wednesday, we are taking a look at what makes this music video such a treat.
Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Swae Lee – Close To Me (Official Video)
The video was shot in Budapest, Hungary, and features tons of aesthetically pleasing architecture that set the tone of “Close to Me.” Throughout the video, Ellie Goulding steals the spotlight with her mysterious yet mesmerizing choreographed dance moves and elegant outfits. Her harmonious lyrics draw listeners in while Swae Lee’s rap vocals keep them invested. Diplo’s melody on this track is a total banger and is the grand slam in “Close to Me.” This music video is one of the most creative and decorated pieces of art I’ve ever watched, and it’s easy to see the huge production value and countless hours that went into making it perfect.
