Charted: 17 12

Songfacts®:

  • A concept record of sorts, Queen of The Clouds is split into the three stages of how things usually go for Tove Lo in a relationship: "The Sex," "The Love" and "The Pain." She explained that this song is about two people trying to get over their problems by having lots and lots of sex.
  • The video was directed by Andreas Weman and Johan Lydén. The clip finds Tove Lo searching for her bad-boy love, who is wanted by the cops. She described it as a "sexy, tacky, dirty Dogville-inspired piece."
