Lykke Li Talks Lollapalooza, Drake & Never Looking Back

The Swedish pop star tells all in this Fuse exclusive

In this Fuse exclusive, host Esteban Serrano sits down with Swedish weirdo pop icon Lykke Li and talks all things LollapaloozaDrake and being a young musician.

"I remember being so surprised by how groovy it was. I was like, 'Whoa, is this me standing on stage, rocking out?'," Li recalls her first Lolla performance in 2011. "It really was a great show and great audience."

Serrano admits that his first introduction to Li was through Drake's cover of "Little Bit," gunshots and all. "I'm not sure [why people liked it] but what I tried to do with this record was to write songs like they did back in the day," Li explained. "I guess people maybe respond because it's a song and it has a structure and a message. It's pop music in a way that isn't cheesy."

Openness is the name of the game, and for Lykke Li, that means never looking back... especially to her first record! "I think I was a bit too young. I couldn't sing well. I'm glad I did it because it's the way it is. I wouldn't ever listen to it. Or the second one. Or this one! I'm moving on. I never think I'm great enough and I want to be great. It's hard!"
