Tove Lo releases new single “Bad as the Boys,” featuring Alma

The Swedish singer comes to terms with a bad break-up.

Swedish pop star Tove Lo has unveiled her latest single, “Bad as the Boys.”

On the catchy pop song, the singer compares her ex-girlfriend to the boys she’s dated before: “I met her in the summer / Thinking life will get better / But she’s gone now / Took my heart and sunk with it / She was just as bad as the boys.” The track also features vocals from Finnish singer Alma, who handles the song’s second verse.

“Since I’m singing about a girl I wanted another female artist on it who also likes girls; so I hit up Alma,” Tove Lo said in a statement. “She really felt the song and was down to sing it with me. She has such an amazing voice and she absolutely killed it! And she’s badass.”


“Bad as the Boys” is the latest single from Tove Lo’s forthcoming album, Sunshine Kitty, due out September 20. The record will feature the previously released track, “Glad He’s Gone,” as well as contributions from Kylie Minogue, Jax Jones, Doja Cat and more.
