Tove Styrke – Debut Album + Videos for ‘Call My Name’ And ‘Bad Time For A Good Time’

Introducing Tove Styrke!

After taking third place in 2009’s Swedish version of Pop Idol 19 year old singer Tove Styrke  joined forces with Swedish producers Janne Kask, Peter Ågren, Adam Olenius, Patrik Berger  (of Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own”), and song writing assistance from Lykke Li  to deliver her self-titled debut album in late 2010.

Styrke’s production team delivered an addictive pop-gem of an album that combined the bubbling electronica of Robyn, the hipster synth-pop of Annie  and the hook-laden stylings of Kylie MinogueStyrke’s  dreamy vocals and slight accent shine brightly throughout the album. Her voice feels new and refreshing, and its one of the strongest features of the album.

Now, two years after her debut Styrke has re-emerged with a brand new single called “Call My Name” and a remake of “Bad Time For A Good Time,” a track that originally appeared on her debut. The track has been heavily revamped and features one of my favorite female MC’s Ana Rab Aka Gnucci Banana.

Check out the brand new videos below and listen to a few tracks from her 2010 debut.

She is freaking sick! love her energy,  she is just contagious!  and she can freaking rhyme! (would love to see her and Nicki Minaj do a party anthem!)
