Lollapalooza Spotlight: Icona Pop
Icona Pop has hit it big with summer jam "I Love It", but the Swedish DJ duo is just getting started...
About Icona PopCaroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo are the two women behind Icona Pop, a group that seemingly went from oblivion to nationwide stardom with their big hit "I Love It". But their beginning is an even better story: Hjelt and Jawo simply met at a party in 2009 and just a few weeks later had written enough songs to start doing their own gigs. Eventually they would release their first EP, Iconic, followed by their first studio album, Icona Pop (2012). Since its astronomical rise to fame, "I Love It" has been featured on Glee, Dancing with the Stars, The Vampire Diaries, TV commercials for ShoeDazzle and the Samsung Galaxy S4. They also received international attention for "Manners" and EP Nights Like This. The duo will jam out in Chicago for the first time in their young careers on Friday night of Lolla.
