I know saying her name is a bit of a meme but Kimmel was the first time I actually heard it spoken and I've been saying it wrong all these years. I was saying Tove like Dove but apparently I was wrong.
She's one of those artists who really deserves a viral tiktok moment. I can't imagine someone discovering Attention Whore or Pineapple Slice (or literally any song by her) and not looping it a zillion times. She hasn't gotten enough credit for her bulletproof catalog.
It's kinda insane how she went from one huge hit to a certified popstar with 5 amazing albums under her belt in less than 10 years. I'll admit, when I first heard Habits I was worried she would end up being a one hit wonder. But then she went and outdone herself so many times I already lost the count.
Her rise to stardom just as I was turning 20 and coming to terms with my sexuality is the reason why her music is so close to my heart. Falling in love for the very first time and just feeling all those emotions while Habits, Got love, Thousand Miles, Not on Drugs, Run on Love, Moments and Out of Mind played in the background was just *chef's kiss*
I remember visiting my now husband in London during the summer when Habits was just blowing up - although I remember it was the Hippie Sabotage version being played everywhere. So happy to have stumbled upon it on the radio cruising around Kilburn. That and Lana's Ultraviolence album soundtracked those two weeks. Bliss.
