Canadian artist bludnymph is a rising star in the pop music scene — but she's not your typical pop star. In the past year, she released her debut EP, collaborated with the Chainsmokers, and had her track Lights Out featured in the trailer for Gen V on Amazon Prime.

bludnymph's latest single, The Things I Do For Love, is an unhinged dark-pop song about obsessive love and jealousy. She joins Q's Tom Power to tell us about the inspiration behind the track.

"I hope that other people can listen to it, and just kind of let themselves be a little bit toxic for the moment," she says. "[It's] somewhere to just let it out and yell it and then free it from your system."
