Zara Larsson is making musical waves in the UK with her song “Lush Life”. Nobody knows too much about this Swedish singer and songwriter but she claimed fame in her own country by winning a talent show called Talang.
The show is a format of “Got Talent” a television show owned by Simon Cowell’s SYCOtv company which then lead on to and resulted in America’s Got Talent. Zara’s first debut EP titled “Introducing” spawned hit singles and was popular in europe countries such as Norway, Denmark and her home country Sweden.
Zara’s next EP was “Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself” which featured five songs, hence why it was called an EP as was too short of tracks, to be called an album.
The debut studio album titled “1” was filled with tracks from both EP’s and went platinum in Sweden.
Zara released debut single “Lush Life” from her second studio album with flavorings of dance/pop sounds with a simple but colorful video. The song was a smash hit across europe aswell as in Australia. Zara gained attention in the UK by teaming up with singer “MNEK” on the single “Never Forget You”. The video featuring a little girl growing up, who befriends a gruffalo and the bond between them will never break. The song reached number 5 in the UK chart. It will be interesting to hear what music direction Zara and her music career take. Her voice soars on the track “Never Forget You” whilst she can hold back her vocal prowess on happy go lucky song “Lush Life”.
Zara also isn’t shy when bringing a subject to the forefront, like she did on her Instagram page taking a picture of her leg wearing a condom and stating ’Oh my gosh, all these guys think they’re too big to wear a condom.’ Like, ’You are lying! This is the proof,’. Zara Larsson has proved her talent across Europe and hopefully her talent will shine bright here, in the UK. I cant wait to hear what this bright star has to offer musically.
