Ellie Goulding thinks she knows why people in America have taken to her really quite old now 'new' single 'Lights'.
Wait for it…
"Maybe there's something to do with the lyrics or the melody that has appealed more to an American audience?" she mused to the BBC.
But, generally, she just seems really baffled by it all. "Nobody expected 'Lights' to be anywhere near number one. It's really old, I wrote it way before my first album came out in a hotel in Brighton. It's been on a really crazy journey."
"It didn't do anything here," she said of the UK Number 49 smash. "If I had made it and thought 'this is quite a strong song, it might do well in some commercial capacity'… but I didn't."
"I mean I love it, obviously, I wrote it. You've got to love your own songs otherwise it defeats the object, but I can't explain it."
