The Best Tracks of 2019, #10


10. Tove Lo, “Sweettalk My Heart”

I could have chosen a much edgier Tove Lo track from 2019 to single out, but as the months have gone by, “Sweettalk My Heart” has grown on me tremendously. It’s a unique song in that its melody and sensibility is a lot lighter and brighter than anything she’s recorded in the last few years. In fact, that gently soaring chorus melody she sings is reminiscent of the more positive moments from Queen of the Clouds. She has stated that it was her intent to bring a lot more happiness to Sunshine Kitty, and this gorgeous track is the best example.
