For this piece she's interviewed by Tarik Saleh, the director behind her Sadness and Rivers video.
" These days, in the music biz, there’s a great measure for whether you’re what the kids are listening to. And that measure is Glee. Of course, Lykke Li’s 2011 single I Follow Rivers was belted out by Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) on the second season of the Fox smash-hit, but that’s no real surprise. The Swedish performer has been heating up Europe since the release of her debut albumYouth Novels in 2008 and her sophomore effort, Wounded Rhymes, is a Top 40 hit in the USA and Canada. She’s played at Coachella and Lollapalooza, acted her socks off in a music video with Stellan Skarsgård and even wrote a song for The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Lykke Li’s star is on the rise, and who better to check in with her on this incredible journey than someone who’s directed music videos for two of her hit singles (Sadness is a Blessing and I Follow Rivers) and considers her a good friend – man of many talents Tarik Saleh. He finds out what it’s like being Lykke Li and how she’s handling the life-changing effects of success. Oh yes, the kids are listening, and so is everyone else. "
