"If you want a hit, you go to Sweden," is what Sky Ferreira must have thought when she plotted her global chart takeover. She ended up in the caring hands of Bloodshy & Avant, the savvy Swedes who have penned mega hits for Madonna, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and other iconic divas.
The result of their collaboration is the song "One," and it turns out to be exactly the type of Robyn-inspired pop that will have purists say "yay" and fans everywhere scream "hurray." Still finding her go-to-market groove, "One" sure is undeniably catchy and incredibly well put together.
If you're new to Sky make sure to listen to some of her other music as well. The classically-trained singer serves up a distinct point of view who has a lot more spunk up her sleeves than "One" may have led you to believe. Eclectic, quirky and smart, songs like "Happy Dre" and "Femme Fatale," prominently display how versatile she is - revealing that catchy electro-driven pop is only one of the many arrows on her bow.
