In the News: World, Meet Zara LarssonMarch 17, 2017
Zara Larsson released her international debut “So Good” today, and we have a feeling the 19-year-old is about to become a household name across the world.
A longtime star in Sweden, Larsson has made noise with songs like “Uncover” and “Lush Life.” Her new album should make her an even bigger star.
Entertainment Weekly calls her “pop’s fearless new voice.” The BBC says she has “her eyes set on global domination” and of her experiences supporting Beyonce and sleep paralysis. And the International Business Times UK reviews the new album, ending by saying if Larsson releases the right singles, she “will very much command her own lane in pop.”
