Ellie Goulding Dons Neons, Rides Toy Horse in Cross-Genre ‘Corden’ Performance
Ellie Goulding's Delirium may have been close to pop-perfection, but now it's also close to country-perfection, hip hop-perfection and reggae-perfection, too.
As a musical guest on last night's (November 24) episode of James Corden's Late Late Show, Goulding and Corden took the massive radio hit "Love Me Like You Do," broke it into eight pieces and engineered each segment to cater to a different market. Yup, the song is now ready for raves, suitable for folk shows and gussied up for gospel numbers, too.
In the video above, the duo kicks things off in fitting pop territory before slipping on a pair of bandannas, tossing on a couple of leather jackets and going all hair-band on the song. Then come hoodies for hip-hop, neon-accented rave tees and, before you know it, the new super-group's outfitted in robes and ready to take things straight to church. Most impressively, Corden and Goulding jump on a pair of toy steeds for the song's country installment, and all we have to say is: Watch out, Carrie Underwood (also, how good is Ellie's drawl...?).
"Had such a laugh with amazing @JKCorden and his awesome crew," Goulding tweeted after the segment aired.
No word yet on how the artist's management plans to handle the new branding approach, but the folk market might just be ready for a banger.
