The real world sucks. Let's sell the kids a fantasy, and nothing says "everything you ever asked for" like Ellie Goulding and Swae Lee finessin' heavy in lush palace gardens, draped in expensive looks. 

We don't need a visual to groove to the pair's "Close To Me." Diplo collaborated on the beat, though he doesn't appear in the video, which is only a little strange since he's doing the whole professional model thing now. Honestly, who needs him when Goulding and Lee are looking like swagged-out royalty? We want to run through gorgeous architecture while the wind blows in our designer sleeves, too.

"Close To Me" is seemingly the beginning of a string of songs to come from the UK singer. She tweeted back in September that a fourth album may be imminent. Is this the lead single of our dreams? It's certainly the look of them. Watch "Close To Me" below.
