Tove Lo Joins Forces With ALMA For “Bad As The Boys”
EDIT: Tove Lo and ALMA’s new banger dropped tonight (August 2) and it’s every bit as good as the preview suggested. Listen to “Bad As The Boys” below.
Tove Lo has already released the (rudely slept-on) Song Of The Summer with “Glad He’s Gone,” but her work isn’t done. The Swedish pop star will follow it up with a new banger called “Bad As The Boys” on August 2. Excitingly, the song constitutes a reunion with “Bitches” collaborator ALMA. So it’s destined to be doubly bad-ass. From the teaser video, “Bad As The Boys” sounds like a bookend of sorts to ALMA’s “Lonely Night.” In that it documents a very specific form of queer heartbreak.
“I know she used me for some fun and I was down until she felt like the one,” Tove sings in the preview (below). “Maybe the heat just got me blind, she’s so fine.” It all comes crashing down on the chorus when she declares: “She was just as bad as the boys.” It sounds like the collaborators are really going through it. “Bad As The Boys” is the second taste of the 31-year-old’s much-anticipated Sunshine Kitty LP. The album, which is expected to drop in September, is the followup to Tove’s 2-part Lady Wood opus.
