The wait is finally over — Zara Larsson will release an album this spring!
Time Magazine’s 30 Most Influential Teens of 2016 will release the record titled So Good on Friday, March 17th. The new album is jet propelled by the brand new single “So Good” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, which is gathering momentum at Top 40 and Rhythm radio formats since it impacted last week.
Larsson also dropped the music video for “So Good” on Friday, which you can now watch below. The video has over 3 million views in just three days.
The Swedish pop singer established a strong U.S. audience with her first two back-to-back hit singles of 2015, the RIAA platinum reggae-tinged “Lush Life” and the double-platinum “Never Forget You” (a collaboration with Grammy nominated artist/producer MNEK). But prior to that, Zara was already a major star in Europe, thanks to Introducing and Let Me Reintroduce Myself, her two EPs of 2013, and a string of multi-platinum singles (“Uncover,” “Carry You Home,” and “Rooftop”) that appeared on her 2014 album 1.
Since the release of 1, the relentlessly hard-working Larsson has seen her career go into overdrive. In 2016, she was featured on Tinie Tempah’s “Girls Like” and David Guetta’s “This One’s for You,” which was the official song of UEFA Euro 2016. Over the summer, she performed with Guetta during the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 EuroCup, and opened for her idol Beyoncé’sFormation World Tour in London. She became part of the Spotify Billions Club for racking up over one billion streams at the digital platform.
Into the fall, Larsson delivered a show-stopping performance at the MTV EMAs in the Netherlands, where she took home awards for Best New Act and Best Swedish Act. In the U.S., she won the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award for Best Swedish Act, and was nominated for Best New Artist at the MTV VMAs. In the UK, Zara has been nominated for Best New Artist at the upcoming 2017 NME Awards (February 15th); and for British Single of the Year and British Video for “Girls Like” at the upcoming 2017 BRIT Awards (February 22nd).
