ellie goulding – high for this [the weeknd cover] (2012)

sugary pop star covering one of an r&b pop star in the making’s best songs? don’t mind if i do. the usually sweet ellie goulding teams up with chiddy bang producer xaphoon jones and heads down a darker path, paved with the house of balloons opener, and it’s getting a thumbs up from this guy.

download it via neon gold and soundcloud.

i know sunny posted clips from this show a couple days ago, but this was a little too awesome not to reshare. while all cameras were confiscated at the door (and media wasn’t allowed either!), they couldn’t stop a bunch of smart phones from getting footage of abel’s first performance. that being said, OMGICU stitched up different performances on youtube for this all-in-one package. neat idea, more people should do this.

go figure. this is the exact (albeit unofficial, in this case) video i had in mind for this song. a bunch of model chicks acting coy and promiscuous in front of a camera is hardly ever a bad thing. in this case, it’s set to the tune of the weeknd’s fantastic track, “high for this,” which can be found on their album. i’ve yet to put this album down since i downloaded it, as it’s quickly become a top choice for me anytime the sun goes down.
