Ellie Goulding has arrived at a point in her career where the songs she is writing bear witness to the place she is in now — after five tumultuous years of professional and personal transformation. Over the course of those years, the British singer and songwriter has sold over six million albums and 20 million singles worldwide. She has scored six consecutive platinum singles: “Lights,” “Anything Could Happen,” “I Need Your Love,” “Burn,” “Outside” and “Love Me Like You Do” (which went to No. 1 on the iTunes chart in over 70 countries and broke the record for most streamed song in one week on Spotify). She has racked up has over one billion plays on both YouTube and Spotify. Goulding has also performed at the world’s biggest festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, and Outside Lands, and collaborated with such top producers as Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Zedd, Diplo, and Max Martin (on “Love Me Like You Do” and her most recent single “On My Mind”). And if that weren’t enough, Goulding, an avid athlete, is also a global ambassador for Nike Women, as well as the new face of Mac cosmetics’ Holiday 2015 campaign.
