In this week’s episode of “You Should Know,” Billboard is getting to know Swedish pop singer and former Swedish Idol contestant Tove Styrke (pronounced "Tu-va Stier-ka").
Styrke, who came in third place on the reality singing competition in 2009, reveals that she was asked to appear on the show and she decided to give it a try. “Being on a show like that was pretty special because I was so young,” Styrke tells Billboard. “I was just 16 when I was on there…but it was fun. I got a record deal out of it and I ended up working with really good people that I still work with and like. So, it like turned out pretty great for me.”
The “Say My Name” singer also opens up about touring with both Lorde, calling her time on the road with her one of the best things she has ever done in her life. “I had so much fun,” she says, adding that her drive grew “so much more” after that.
