Dancehall legend Sean Paul and Swedish pop star Tove Lo have come together for their new track, ‘Calling On Me’.
On the track, the Jamaican star proclaims, “I’ll be there to give you what you need/I’ll support your calling selflessly/Just like you would do for me without a ‘please’/Same blood with me.” Tove Lo sings the hook: “Calling, calling, calling on me/Forever running to you/I’ll be, I’ll be, I’ll be on time/Like you expect me to”.
Tove Lo’s electro-pop foundation flows effortlessly with Sean Paul’s classic tropical house beats, highlighting both artists’ signature sounds.
The Grammy-winning artist is no stranger to collaborations, who recently teamed up Oryane on ‘Love Mi Ladies’ and with rapper YG on ‘When It Comes To You’. In recent years he’s also tracks with Sia, Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Migos, David Guetta, J Balvin, and DJ Snake amongst a growing list.
After announcing the new single, the Jamaican rapper, singer and record producer shared his inspiration for the song:
“’Calling On Me’ is a dope song reflecting on the real side of love. If you love someone, the energy doesn’t ever change. They are able to call on you at all times, I’m proud to have such an amazing vocalist like Tove Lo be on the track with me.”
With close to 2 billion combined global streams and 23 million monthly Spotify listeners, Sean Paul remains without a doubt, one of the most instantly recognisable voices in music.
Tove Lo has hit the ground running this year with the release of two new tracks: ‘Bikini Porn’ and ‘Passion and Pain Taste the Same When I’m Weak’. These tracks quickly followed up her last album Sunshine Kitty, released in September of 2019.
“The Swedish pop star’s fourth album contains some of her most vulnerable writing inside her clubbiest record,” writes Pitchfork.
