Tove Lo performs “Talking Body”

We’re nearing the end of the year, which means end of the year posts are looming just around the corner. I’m positive Tove Lo’s debut album Queen of the Clouds will make most of the “Best Albums” lists.

The rising pop star is three singles into the project at this point and, while i love the album as a whole, I haven’t liked her singles until now. (Not that that matters, she’s done pretty well for herself with the selections thus far).

“Talking Body” is an instant standout on the album. It’s catchy and bold, and, as with all of Lo’s music thus far, it provides an unfiltered peek into the singer’s outlook on relationships.

As far as pop songs goes, it’s one of the best singles out at the moment.

“If you love me right, we fuck for life,” Lo sings, delivering one of the album’s best (and most romantic?) lyrics. This hook is topped only by “Moments” (“I can get a little drunk. I get into all the don’ts, but on good days I am charming as fuck.”) on the project.

The Swedish singer/songwriter, who got her start writing for artists like Icona Pop, The Saturdays, Lea Michele and Girls Aloud, recently performed the song live with a band. Her label (Island Records) has uploaded a video of the performance to YouTube.

A barefoot Tove Lo proves she’s not only a good artist but also a solid performer in the video.

Prepare to be obsessed.
