When one listens to her music, it sounds as if Rihanna and Sia had blended in a duo of mind-blowing voices in a single pop song. But one couldn’t be more wrong! Eurochannel is proud to introduce you to one of the most powerful and mesmerizing voices to come from Europe in recent years: from Sweden, Zara Larsson!
Larsson first entered public life as a 10-year-old singing sensation who finished first place in the 2008 season of Talang Sverige, the Swedish version of Got Talent. Instead of taking advantage of the momentum, she retreated to private life and her school duties. In 2013 she re-emerged as an independent artist with a new EP and a naturally more mature look and sound. After collecting millions of social media followers and bona fide glory across Europe, she set her sights on the American continent.
Eurochannel invites you to discover the music of a Swedish artist who will headline plenty of music festivals in the future, a woman who “gave us the Rihanna-style summer jam we deserve,” as Time Magazine wrote in June 2015.
Zara Maria Larsson (born December 16, 1997) is a Swedish singer-songwriter. She received national fame for winning the 2008 season of the talent show Talang, the Swedish version of Got Talent, at the age of 10. Larsson signed with the record label TEN Music Group in 2010 and released her debut EP album in January 2013. The single "Uncover" topped the charts in Sweden and Norway. In July 2013 the album Introducing was certified Triple Platinum. Larsson also signed a three-year contract with Epic Records in the United States in April 2013. Her latest single, “Never Forget You,” reached No.1 in Sweden, No.5 in UK, No.3 in Australia, and it also hit No.1 on Sweden's Spotify charts.
