Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson has died at 61, according to an official statement from her management’s website.
The statement says the Swedish star died Monday after a 17-year battle with cancer.
Following a solo career, Fredriksson teamed up with Per Gessle in 1986 to form the pop duo Roxette, which launched them into the international spotlight.
The pair is best known for the songs “It Must Have Been Love” from 1986, “Listen to Your Heart” from 1988 and “The Look” from 1988.
Who better to write a poppy Christmas anthem than Taylor Swift – she did grow up on a Christmas tree farm, after all. The singer dropped her newest holiday single “Christmas Tree Farm” on Thursday night along with a music video that is giving fans an intimate glimpse of her childhood.
Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, and spent her early years living on an actual Christmas tree farm before moving and trying her luck as a country singer in Nashville – we all know how that turned out.

Sir Elton John unleashed a foul-mouthed spray at security staff during his Perth show on Sunday night, calling them c**ts, morons and turds.
Two guards came to the star’s attention as they evicted a female concert-goer during the show at HBF Park.
“Hey, you two security guards with the girls, F off. Bring her back here immediately,” Elton hissed.
“Come on you c**ts. Morons, you both are, morons. You don’t treat girls like that!
“Leave her alone you turds.”
All eyes will be on Taylor Swift at the 2019 American Music Awards.
The 29-year-old pop star, who has continued to publicly battle with the men who own her master recordings, is set to take the stage at Sunday’s show — a performance she recently said was put in jeopardy by Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun. Swift could also make history at the AMAs if she surpasses Michael Jackson’s record for most wins.
