Her real name is Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson, but you can call her Tove Lo.  Apparently, that's a nickname she's had since she was 3?!

Yeah, "lo" means "lynx" in Swedish.

She's wild, raw, emotional, unpredictable, and we're totally digging it.  Because her music explores the sloppy side of love, it took the US to warm up to it.  Her song "Habits," was dubbed a sleeper hit because of it...  but it's still one of the more popular songs on Star 99.9 three years later!  Maybe she was the first artist to really dig into the messy side of love and breakups, because now everyone seems to be singing about them.

She's an amazing songwriter, too.  She's written music for Ellie Goulding, Hilary Duff, Colplay, and Adam Lambert.  Did you know she wrote "Love Me Like You Do?"  Yep, makes sense now, doesn't it!

 Still, she's still holds her reputation for being "Sweden's darkest pop export" and we wouldn't have her any other way!  I mean, she beat records that Ace of Base held since the 90's... and here's hoping she takes on Abba's very soon!
