Like Em Young

Album: Queen of the Clouds (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Tove Lo calling out her friends who have boyfriends twice their age. The Swedish songstress told MTV she's not saying that having a relationship with a much older man is wrong. "I think you should do whatever you want," she explained. "But I think that the other way around, it's more taboo. So that's kind of where that came from."
