Ellie Goulding: ‘No.1 Feels Amazing’
EXCLUSIVE! We chat to the Burn singer about her VMA nomination with Calvin...
Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 12:47
Ellie Goulding has said “it feels amazing” to be No.1 in the UK with Burn and having kept Lady Gaga at bay once again.
Speaking to MTV News UK’s very own Becca Dudley at V Festival on Sunday Ellie said of the weekend’s battle: “I feel like we always end up together… It feels amazing, not just her but Avicii and Miley Cyrus and a lot of songs that I’ve really have loved this summer so it feels really particularly special.
“Especially now like this is the day that I’ve come home and I’m back and I see everyone and everyone’s really happy and in a good mood so yeah it’s good and the sun is shining!”
Ellie’s collab with Calvin Harris I Need Your Love is up for Best Song Of The Summer Award at this year’s MTV VMAs against One Direction, Daft Punk, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke, so we asked about the story behind the song…
“Well you don’t turn down Calvin Harris do you ever!? You’d be mental!” she began. “He emailed me a couple of years ago and literally was just like ‘Do you wanna do a song together?’ and I know he writes a lot of stuff by himself so I felt very honoured when he said he wanted to actually write a song together .
“So we wrote that one in his flat in London and then we recorded it in the States and we recorded it again back in London and then finally it got released and that was another one I didn’t expect to have the success that it did so yeah I’m very pleased about that one too.”
On the pair’s loved-up video she revealed: “It was just fun there wasn’t really any awkward moments, not really. By the end of the day we were like ‘wicked, we’ve made a good video. Cool. Done.’
On their chances at this year’s awards in Brooklyn Ellie added: “I don’t know but you know that video like genuinely a lot of people have seen it and a lot of people love it so maybe it’s got a chance.”
We Found Love - Calvin’s hit with Rihanna - scored the Video Of The Year accolade at last year’s VMAs as well as his video for Feels So Close scoring the moonman for Best Electronic Dance Music Video too.
