Tove Lo          

Swedish Pop Singer, Songwriter & Musician Known for "Habits (Stay High)" and "Talking Body"

Tove Lo is a Swedish singer-songwriter known for "Habits (Stay High" and "Talking Body."

Lo gradually developed her own idiosyncratic style of epic, electronically tinged songwriting with raw, brutally honest lyrics, influenced as much by '80s pop as by contemporary EDM. Called "Sweden's darkest pop export" by Rolling Stone, she is known for her raw, grunge-influenced take on pop music. Her honest, complex and autobiographical lyrical content has led to her being dubbed "the saddest girl in Sweden."

Raised in the Djursholm district of Danderyd, a northern suburb of Stockholm, Lo is an alumna of the music school Rytmus Musikergymnasiet. That music-oriented high school is comparable to the U.K.'s BRIT School and while there, she met and befriended the future members of Icona Pop She formed the rock band Tremblebee in 2006. After it disbanded, Lo pursued a career in songwriting and earned a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music in 2011. Working with producers Alexander Kronlund, Max Martin, and Xenomania, she became a successful songwriter, recording and releasing her own compositions independently.

In 2013, Lo was signed to Universal Music, Island, and Polydor. The following year, Lo rose to fame with her debut album, Queen of the Clouds, which opened at #14 on the US Billboard 200 chart in October 2014. It spawned the sleeper hit single "Habits (Stay High)," which peaked at #3 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Her second album, Lady Wood, was released in October 2016 and debuted at #11 on the Billboard 200; "Cool Girl" was its lead single. Her third album, Blue Lips, was released in November 2017, peaking at #138 on the Billboard 200.

On September 20, 2019, Lo released her fourth studio album, Sunshine Kitty.

In addition to her solo work, Lo has co-written songs for other artists, including Lorde's "Homemade Dynamite" (2017) and Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" (2015), a song that garnered her first Grammy Award nomination. She has collaborated with many artists like Alesso, Flume, Nick Jonas, Seven Lions, Broods, Urban Cone, and Coldplay.
