English singer Ellie Goulding has joined the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, while the previously announced Rihanna has dropped out to complete work on an album.

A CBS spokeswoman confirmed the change Tuesday.

"Love Me like You Do" singer Goulding, 28, has released four platinum singles since March 2011. At the royal wedding of England's Prince William and Kate Middleton in April of that year, she performed roughly 14 songs, including the Elton John-Bernie Taupin composition "Your Song." Her third studio album, "Delirium," is scheduled for release Friday.

Rihanna's eighth studio album, "Anti" is due out "soon," according to the singer's official site. Her mentor, rapper and music mogul Jay Z, told Vanity Fair in its November issue that the 27-year-old eight-time Grammy Award-winner has been taking her time with the album -- her first in three years -- because "she wants it to be perfect."

The fashion show, taped in Manhattan on Nov. 10, airs Dec. 8 on CBS.
