Ellie-Goulding-&-Diplo

Diplo x Ellie Goulding – Close To Me (feat. Swae Lee)


Diplo‘s rise to fame saw him release a number of ferocious hits, becoming known for his unforgiving, bass-heavy sound. Lately, Diplo’s sound has been much more experimental and he has ventured into many new genres. His latest hit sees him collaborate with world-famous vocalist Ellie Goulding for ‘Close To Me‘, a mellow vocal anthem that transcends genres.

While Diplo’s influence can clearly be heard throughout the track, it is completely in contrast with the sound that enabled him to rise to fame. The focus throughout the track remains on the haunting vocals which blend effortlessly with the euphoric melody. Balancing pop and electronic with ease, the track is certainly destined for success within both the festival scene and the mainstream chart.

Diplo has dropped a number of huge hits this year that have spanned many genres. In fact, it is truly staggering the sheer volume of releases that he has delivered over the course of 2018. One of his biggest triumphs this year was his hit ‘Welcome to the Party‘ with French Montana, Lil Pump and Zhavia Ward, which was featured in the movie Deadpool 2. With Diplo continuing to dominate the music industry, it looks like 2019 may hold even more success for the star.
