After spending her teenage years navigating the local punk scene in Denmark, fronting multiple grunge bands, dressing in black, and swearing by Kim Gordon and Karen O, Karen Marie Ørsted aka MØ is now one the country’s biggest pop stars. ““I remember driving around in Ubers in California and [one of my songs] would come on and I’d be like, ‘That’s my song playing on the Uber radio!’” the singer says of her burgeoning superstardom. While she says that she spends most of her life on planes, jetting from different concert venues and record studios to collaborate with the likes of Major Lazer, Justin Bieber, and Charli XCX, last week, the singer headed back home to take in the latest in Denmark fashion during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Here, the singer models the best of the week, straight off the runway.
Fridays are already such fabulous days of the week, but now that Fridays are also new music Friday, we get treats to brighten our day even more like new music from long time IHM extolled Danish pop star MØ! It’s crazy how it’s been four plus years since we first fell in love with her via debut singles like Glass and Pilgrim. She’s now collaborated with the likes of Cashmere Cat, DJ Snake, and Major Lazer on some of the biggest EDM hits of the decade. MØ makes a magnificent solo return today on regal and grand Nights With You. This bold and melodic anthem could easily be the next big crossover pop and electronica hit. It’s that hooking, plus it has plenty of MØ’s usual lionhearted spunk and sass. Nights With You is out now on iTunes via Sony.
