Ellie Goulding has a voice that can pierce through bass-heavy club music, dance atop piano ballads, and breezily run up the hill of artsy synth-pop. Forbes wrote, “Goulding has gotten crafting pop songs down to a science,” while Billboard and Rolling Stone included Higher Than Heaven on their “Best Of 2023 So Far” album round-ups. Ms. Goulding recently nabbed a coveted Official Chart Double in the UK, topping both the Official Singles and the Official Albums Chart. Spending eight weeks at No. 1 with her Calvin Harris collaboration “Miracle,” her new album Higher Than Heaven also became her fourth chart-topping LP. She now joins Adele as the British female solo artist with the most No. 1 albums, with four apiece. “Miracle” also topped the US Dance Radio Chart, while the song has over 434 million global streams.
To date, Ms. Goulding has earned 10 platinum singles, four No. 1 UK albums, two BRIT Awards, a Grammy Award nomination, and a Golden Globe nomination. She has sold more than 28 million albums and 230 million singles and amassed 50 billion streams worldwide. She is also one of the most streamed female artists on Spotify with over 8 billion streams. With more than 50 million followers combined on her social platforms, she earned YouTube’s Diamond Award with 10 million subscribers on her YouTube channel and over 6.8 billion views globally.
