A Danish artist starts climbing the Nordic charts – challenging Avicii and Zara Larsson!
Looking at this week’s Nordic charts, it’s hard to miss the fact that Avicii just released a new album, with new tracks swirling all around the the top of the lists. Zara Larsson also continues to stand her ground – and will probably do so for a while ahead…
Both Avicii and Zara Larsson, who are dominating the Swedish Nordic chart, are Swedish – but now there’s an unexpected challenger closing in. It’s Lukas Graham – a soulful rock singer from Christiania, Copenhagen.
His single ‘7 Years’ – released outside of Denmark earlier this year – has now begun climbing the Swedish Nordic chart and can also be found on the Trenda: Nordic Charts playlist on Spotify. ‘7 Years’ has already passed Avicii’s ‘Waiting For Love’ and ‘Pure Grinding’, and Zara Larsson’s ‘Lush Life’ and lands in the 6th position on the chart this week – an effort in itself!
Judging from Lukas Graham’s own channels, it seems to be only a question of time before Norway, Finland and Iceland open their eyes and ears for this original Danish artist!
