With 2016 just around the corner (like, literally less than 24 hours away), the next 12 months will bring many up and coming popstars fighting their way to the top of the charts and into our hearts. We’ve been keeping an eye on the stars of tomorrow for a while now and have decided that if you’re going to follow just one of these new starlets, it needs to be Zara Larsson.
We’ve put together a little guide to help you get to know Zara a bit more. Make sure you carry on reading so you can boast to your friends about knowing her first.
Where do I know her from?
If you’re from Sweden you’ll know her as the ten-year-old winner of Talang (It’s basically Sweden’s Britain’s Got Talent) way back in 2008. For us British and international folk, she’s best known for being the voice of MNEK’s ‘Never Forget You’.
What’s her best song?
We’d have to say it’s her latest single. We’re obsessing over ‘Lush Life’ right now.
What else has she done?
Since winning Talang in 2008, Zara has had three number one singles in her native Sweden, including 2013’s ‘Uncover’ which went seven times platinum. Yes, SEVEN.
Who does she sound like?
Her related artists on Spotify include huge Swedish names like Tove Lo and Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw so she’s in great company.
Who else likes her?
Well the music video for her single ‘Weak Heart’ was only tweeted out by HARRY BLOODY STYLES, wasn’t it?
