Ellie Goulding, more like Golding to us! That’s right RIAA certified this pop queen gold for her 4th studio album Brightest Blue! Since its July 17th release, the album received 500K in sales!
We’ve got to say it’s a well-deserved milestone, fitting of her 10 years in the music biz. She celebrated her anniversary back in March of this year with the release of her first album Lights! But it comes as no shock to us because we’ve been fans of Ellie’s music for quite a while now and we know that Brightest Blue is a special one!
Brightest Blue was created in two parts with all-star writers and producers such as Tobias Jesso Jr., Starsmith, ILYA, serpentwithfeet, Patrick Wimberly, and Jim Eliot. The first 13 tracks are “contemplations” produced by both Ellie and Joe Kearns. The second part, EG.0, is where the collabs come in with banger hits featuring Lauv, Swae Lee, and JUICE WRLD.
While we love all of Ellie Goulding’s albums for their creativity, Brightest Blue is her personal one! We just loved seeing her on this kind level and it is beautiful! If you’re like us, you love hearing the stories behind the creation, so we have it here for you to watch! She discussed it all with Anthony Mason from CBS!
‘Slow Grenade’ Syn Cole Remix
She also brought us another nugget to enjoy! Ellie teamed up with DJ Syn Cole for a new remix of ‘Slow Grenade!’ Check it out below!
More for the Golden Girl
To add to the excitement of her glimmering work, ‘Close To Me’ with Diplo featuring Swae Lee has been nominated for the Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic song! We’re crossing our fingers she’ll snag the win on October 14th when the winners are announced! Also, this week, BMI also recognized ‘Close To Me’ along with ‘Hate Me’ awarding her with 9 London Awards and 7 US Pop Awards!
What can we say? She’s golden!
