Tove Lo is having a sexy year, musically speaking.
The Swedish singer is riding high off her recent hit, the sex anthem "Talking Body," and she also co-wrote Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" from the ubiquitous "50 Shades of Grey" soundtrack.
"I was basically a part of helping with the lyrics," Lo said of Goulding's multiplatinum, Top 5 hit. "I watched the movie and when it comes on in the movie, you're like, 'I was part of that!' "
"I'm not a Mr. Grey girl. He's not my type at all," she added. The song is the follow-up to Lo's debut hit, "Habits (Stay High)," which peaked at No. 3.
"I don't think I realized how many people were going to hear this very personal story about me — that goes for all of my songs," she said after rehearsing at the Rock in Rio USA festival in Las Vegas, where Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars were headliners. "A lot of people can relate — that's why I think it did so well, because people were like, 'That's me. I feel that pain!' "
The songs appear on her debut album, "Queen of the Clouds," released last year.
Lo, who toured with Katy Perry, has written songs for Hilary Duff, Icona Pop, Lea Michelle and others. She has worked under pop powerhouse Max Martin and songwriter Shellbeck, and says collaborating with singer-songwriter Sia would be a "dream."
"I'm in love with everything that she does for herself because it's so emotional and it has inspiration that I love, and her voice is just out of this world."
