Tove Styrke (born 19 November 1992) is a Swedish singer and songwriter who gained prominence after finishing in third place on Swedish Idol
Following her Idol appearance, Styrke signed to Sony Music and began work on her debut album. Her first single, “Million Pieces”, was released in June 2010, with her self-titled studio album following in November that year, reaching #10 on the Swedish album chart. Its second single, “White Light Moment”, peaked at #2 on the Swedish singles chart. “Call My Name” was released as the lead single for a revised version of the album in August 2011, which was released in November in Sweden and March/April the following year in Germany/the UK respectively.
After wrapping up promotion for the album, Styrke took an extended break, eventually returning in May 2014 with the single “Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You”. The Borderline EP followed in November featuring the title track, which was released as a single the previous month. Styrke later confirmed the release of her second album, Kiddo, for June 2015, preceded by the singles “Ego” and “Number One”. The album was met with critical acclaim upon release, but did chart lower than her previous album, peaking at #14 in Sweden.
Styrke returned in 2017 with the release of "Say My Name"
in late April, and a third album is set to be released later in the year.
