Tove Lo has quickly become one of the hottest acts in music. Ever since the release of her debut, Queen of the Clouds, in 2014, she has been touring around the world, topping the charts with singles like “Talking Body” and “Habits (Stay High),” and even nabbed a Grammy Award nomination for co-writing Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do.” The Swedish pop singer is planning to keep the success moving with her next record, Lady Wood, and just released a new song titled “Influence” in promotion of it on Apple Music.
“Influence” is mellow and beat heavy, with Tove Lo’s soothing vocals supporting the verses as they lead into a stripped down but still effective chorus. The main selling point of “Influence,” however, is the guest spot from rapper Wiz Khalifa.
Khalifa, who’s been fairly busy on the feature front so far in 2016, delivers a rapid fire verse and it’s arguably one of the best guest spots of his career.
Though “Influence” is only one song off of Lady Wood’s 12 in total, the song was produced by the same team responsible for most tracks off Queen of the Clouds, so fans of the track should be excited to hear what comes next when Tove Lo‘s Lady Wood releases via Island Records on October 28th.
