Swedish singer/songwriter Tove Lo seems primed for a major Lorde-like explosion this year. With her strong collaboration with Seven Lions and Myon & Shane 54 as well as writing credits on songs for Lea Michele and Icona Pop, her songs have an edgy beauty that is quite reminiscent of Sia Furler. Her song “Habits” has buzzed since the summer, and in the hands of the Chainsmokers gets an energetic electro treatment while keeping the haunting, pretty vocals as the focus over the melodic drop. Not only are the Chainsmokers starting the year on a high note with a free download, they just might be doing for Tove Lo what Cedric Gervais did for Lana del Rey on his Grammy-nominated “Summertime Sadness” remix.
