We first met Swedish singer Tove Lo when she admitted she needed to stay high in order to get over a broken heart in her breakout single “Habits.” So, it should come as no surprise that Lo’s new track “Influence,” with Wiz Khalifa, is all about being under the influence—herbal and other.
Lo is straightforward about her state of mind in the new track, singing, “There’s one thing I need you now to know ’bout me / You know I’m under the influence / So don’t trust every word I say, I say.”
The low-key EDM track gets a burst of energy thanks to Khalifa’s spit-fire verse, with the rapper sounding very clear-headed in his rhymes.
“Influence” follows “Cool Girl,” the lead single from Lo’s upcoming second album Lady Wood and the first chapter in a video series titled Fairy Dust. The video opens and closes with shots of Lo in a club, which we assume is reference to the videos to come in later chapters. It’s unclear yet as to whether these shots are part of a video for “Influence.”
Tove Lo’s sophomore album Lady Wood is set to be released October 28. The singer is currently on tour across North America with Maroon 5.
