Ellie Goulding’s new album Delirium is here, and it features her mega hit “Love Me Like You Do” from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. Stopping by James Corden’s Late Late Show last night (Nov. 24), Goulding performed several highly unexpected shades of her hit. In case you ever wondered what “Love Me” would sound like in punk, country, hip-hop, rave, reggae, Mumford-style folk and gospel, well, here you go.
Goulding and Corden teamed up for the “Remix-Up,” which featured a stealthy whirlwind of costume changes to go with the shifting genres. And they flash handy captions on screen with each one, in case you need to be reminded that a gold chain and red bandana is indeed ‘Hip-Hop.”
And we’re all about Ellie’s adopted twang for the country bit, which comes off sounding kind of Scottish from the Herefordshire, England native.
