At the age of 10 Swedish artist Zara Larsson won “Sweden’s Got Talent.” When you hear her voice you’ll understand why. Now 17, Zara is an artist to watch.

So far only two songs have been released from her upcoming studio album, but we can’t wait to hear more. She has been compared to the likes of Rihanna and Whitney Houston, and is currently nominated for Best Swedish Act for the “MTV EMAs.”

Her latest single “Never Forget You” with Grammy nominated British artist MNEK was released in July and has been successful in Scandinavia. British singer Sam Smith shared his love for the song on Instagram, and we could not agree more.

The upbeat hit “Lush Life” brings back memories of summer and promises great things for the upcoming album.

The album is scheduled to be released in October, but Larsson already expressed this summer that she would rather have the album come out too late than rush it and release it on time.

Either way, we are excited for when it will be released and you should be, too.

To hear Zara Larsson and other emerging artists, tune in to Thomas & Molly in the Morning on Mast Radio, Tuesdays at 8 a.m., and catch our weekly reviews in the Mast.
