‘Grapefruit’ by Tove Lo – Single Rating: 5/5 ★★★★★
‘Grapefruit’ starts with a bang and a topical narrative that will resonate with many people who listen to it. Tove Lo is also very open and honest when she talks about her body image and the pressure that many people feel about how they look.
Tove Lo spoke about the sincere narrative; she said: “Up until now, I’ve never really been up front about the fact that I had a severe eating disorder when I was a teenager. I did a movie in Sweden, and had to lose some weight for it—nothing extreme, maybe four or five kilos, but I had to lose it in two weeks. I went on a diet for the first time in 10 years and it triggered so many memories—the obsession, the anxiety, being hungry all the time.”
“All these memories flooded back and I was like, ‘Can I do this without falling back into old patterns?’ In the end, I did it and it was fine. To me, it felt like validation that I’d healed. So I started writing about that. When I played this song for my friends, they were like, ‘I never would’ve known. You’re so much about body positivity.’ And my response is: ‘Yes, because I went through that.'”
The electronic soundscape created by this song is thrilling and overflowing with charisma. The music is very passionate, and it perfectly complements the lyrics.
