Tove Lo Releases Dua Lipa-Co Written ‘Borderline’: Look + Listen

Co-written with Dua Lipa, on Friday (2.10) Tove Lo dropped her “Borderline” single and video.

Born Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson, the musician’s latest mini-movie follows her ex-AI lover, Annie 3000, disguised as a crash test dummy kidnapping Tove and avenging her.

In a statement about her new song, the Swedish singer said “Borderline is a song about being on the edge of love. The drama you cause inside yourself and with another person if you feel insecure. You test them.” “This song has existed for a long time, and I’ve always felt it was incredibly special, so getting to release it now has sort of a full-circle feeling.”

Tove’s latest video is a continuation of the visual for her Dirt Femme lead single “No One Dies For Love,” “That’s why we land in Mexico City: Annie 3000 was resuscitated to be a crash test dummy, where she found Tove Lo and got her revenge.” “I hope my fans love the bizarre love story that unfolds in this video, it’s my favorite kind of thing!” the singer said.

Tove Lo wrote “Borderline” while in the studio with Dua before the Albanian singer released her LP Future Nostalgia, and during their writing session, the ladies wrote “Cool” from Lipa’s LP and “Borderline.”

Taking to Instagram Dua wrote “The first day Tove Lo and I got into the studio we wrote this song and I am so excited for it to come out into the world!!!” And Tove added “Tons of love to @DUALIPA for trusting me with this baby!!” “This is the very first song we wrote together and the very start of our friendship so this feels extra special. Now everybody hold your breath…”

“Borderline” dropped concurrent with the launch of Tove Lo’s Dirt Femme world tour when she’ll perform in New York on Friday before making her way across the U.S.

“I’ve looked back on how my femininity has helped and hurt me throughout my life,” she told Rolling Stone ahead of the release of Dirt Femme. “And I think the album has that tone to it. I’m bringing up all these questions and feelings and emotions that don’t necessarily have answers to them. It’s just more my current place of wonder.”
