Ellinor Ollovsdotter never meant to get into music. It all happened at a party in Paris four years ago when her producer, Tim Deneve, put on a few beats at a party and she began to sing over it. "Ah, fuck that," was her response to Deneve's immediate praise, but the rest, is obviously history. On the fast track to stardom, Elliphant has garnered international praise through her emergence of a worldly musical flair, unforgettable pop hooks, and her own personal spunk. With collaborations with Skrillex
tracks like "Love Me Badder"
and "Down On Life"
, the Swedish singer/rapper is one of hottest acts on deck for becoming a household name in pop.
Originally working in the restaurant industry in the kitchen and as a server for over ten years, Elliphant's fame came in a whirlwind of success. In just six short months following the party where her talent was discovered, she was signed to TEN Music Group. Recently, she can be seen on her Instagram
hanging out with the likes of Rae Sremmurd, Willow Smith, and Charlie XCX, who she toured with on her Girl Power North American Tour as an opener in the fall of 2014. Hot off the heels of her 2014 EP One More
, Elliphant prepares to take the world by storm with the release of her sophomore LP Living Life Golden
, set for a September 25th release later this year.
We had the chance to have a set at our headquarters in Brooklyn. Check out our trailer for our upcoming session with Elliphant below:
