WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL HAVE TO COMPROMISE WITH IF YOU BECOME A GLOBAL SUPERSTAR?
“I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m from Stockholm and whatever happens in my career, I think people here are too cool to care. Also, I’ve already compromised on a lot. Since I’m never home, I hardly ever see my friends and family, and I haven’t exactly been an A -student either…”
Zara Larsson became a household name in Sweden in 2008 – when she was 10 – and won the country’s version of the “Got Talent” TV series. After winning, she was expected to become a child star, but instead it went completely silent around her for a long time.
Four years after her talent show win, she was signed by a record label and her breakthrough single Uncover was released. It’s been an upward spiral ever since, and with her 2015 and 2016 singles Lush Life, Never Forget You and Ain’t My Fault, she has launched over two billion streams online.
