So good, so good, so good, so good!
I've had my eye on Zara Larsson since 2015's "Lush Life," but she hit it big way before that. At age 10, Larsson won a talent show named Talang, the Swedish version of America's Got Talent. She released her debut studio album, 1, (which was certified Platinum in Sweden) and got her bearings on Cher Lloyd's I Wish Tour. Oddly enough, it wasn't the budding pop star's mad talent to fully convince me she's a force to be reckoned with. That I'll credit to Epic Records head honcho LA Reid. During an appearance on the Today Show last year, Reid, who represents Jennifer Lopez, Meghan Trainor and Fifth Harmony, to name a few, said Zara is THE one to watch, saying: "of all of the artists that are in my life currently [Zara] has the potential to be the biggest of all of them, and there are some big ones."
Here we are. Larsson just dropped her second record, So Good, which features collaborations from Ty Dolla $ign, MNEK, Wizkid and Clean Bandit. If the record sounds a bit familiar, it's because the 19-year-old unleashed a third of it ahead of today's release date. Get familiar with the rest of So Good, which you can stream below:
