This past year, Elliphant made big moves onto the music scene and only plans to continue to make her way to the top come 2014.

The Swedish MC and singer, Ellinor Olovsdotter, also known as Elliphant, completed a North American tour with Twin Shadow and even landed a record deal with Dr Luke's Sony Music Entertainment label Kemosabe Records. In the fall, she released her acclaimed single "Down On Life" which received likes from big names in the industry including Katy Perry, Perez Hilton and Pitchfork.

The single "explores everyday anxieties and desire of wanting to get away from it all", making it relatable to everyone.

The single is upbeat and poppy, with a "soaring chorus that is enough to get anyone out of a slump and back in the game of life", a recent press release stated in response to the success of the single.

Elliphant gained international success in the spring of 2012 when she released her debut single "Tekkno Scene" on the Swedish independent label record company TEN. Her music is interesting and different than anything else that has been heard, with a mix of Jamaican sounds, dancehall and pop genres.

Elliphant has been described as sounding like the offspring of MIA and Diplo, with in-your-face sounds that make listeners want to hear what else she has in store.

And what does she have in store for 2014? Elliphant has been working on her debut album and plans to return to North America for more tour dates and performances.
