Royalty fave (and Idolator-approved) Ellie Goulding adds some elegance to Lupe Fiasco’s new song “Lightwork”, off the Chi-town rapper’s forthcoming Friend Of The People mixtape, which drops this Thanksgiving. The song samples the Bassnecter remix of the Brit singer’s single “Lights”, and allows a spacey, ethereal sound to surround the MC’s introspective rhymes. Listen below.
