The story of Zara Larsson started seven years ago, and today, the rising Swedish star finds two of her singles placed in the Nordic charts!

The Scandinavian soil seems to be one of the world’s best breeding grounds for exciting pop artists, and one of the most intriguing acts right now is without doubt 17-year old Swede Zara Larsson. Seven years ago, Zara appeared on the Swedish talent show ‘Talang’, when, at only ten years old, she managed to walk home from the finale with a number one spot and half a million Swedish crowns richer.

The talent show mark is now long washed off, and recent singles from Zara’s upcoming album, including ‘Lush Life‘ and ‘Never Forget You ft. MNEK‘, have claimed their respective positions on the Nordic charts – both singles are in the top five in SwedenNorway and Denmark and ‘Lush Life’ reached similar positions in Finland earlier this year.

Zara Larsson’s music has been spreading like wildfire throughout the Nordics and the artist is currently celebrating further success, having been nominated for ‘Best Swedish Act’ at the MTV European Music Awards!

We predict BIG things for Zara and her music, as she’s already reaching the same status as Tove Lo, Tove Styrke and Icona Pop in her home region. Add a strong social cause – Zara is a an unyielding feminist – and global success should be (deservedly) just around the corner.
