In the new video for “Talking Body” off her 2014 debut album Queen of the Clouds, YOK alum Tove Lo can’t stop making out with a criminal. She and her jail-bound mystery man smooch in a variety of places — a club, a casino, a strip club, jail– but, as if the two live in a world where making out is illegal, the police show up every time they lock lips.
You’ll obviously be wowed by the performances during You Oughta Know Live In Concert tomorrow night. But VH1 also has a bevy of high-profile presenters to get you even more excited about the show!
You Oughta Know Live In Concert is just 3 short days away, and if you’re not excited yet, then clearly you have read the lineup. From Christina Aguilera favorites A Great Big World in January, to the chart busting Sam Smith in June, all the way through to Mary Lambert this month, the You Oughta Know Class of 2014 packed some serious star power. And now they’re going to be all one on stage! If that still doesn’t get you pumped, check out some impressive stats and fun facts from this year’s VH1 picks.
You Oughta Know alum Tove Lo may hail from Sweden, but lucky for us, she knows no boundaries when it comes to her music. Her lyrics reflect those of pain, love and heartbreak, which naturally incorporate lots of drugs and lots of sex. Now that’s a rock star.

July’s You Oughta Know artist Tove Lo is no stranger to VH1’s shenanigans. Earlier this month, the “Habits (Stay High)” singer indulged us with a rip-roaring Speed Interview, where she revealed her worst habit is falling asleep in the tub while drunk and biggest musical influences are Charlotte Gainsbourg, Robyn, and Lykke Li. She’s decided to come back for more, this time playing a round of You Can’t Say That.
We’ve had many greats take a swing at our Stop/Watch Challenge to see if they can squeeze their hits into 60 seconds or less. This week, in honor of the launch of her month-long VH1 You Oughta Know campaign, we’re premiering Tove Lo‘s race against the clock as she sings her new single “Habits (Stay High)”.
