Zara Larsson is only eighteen years old but she’s already the newest Swedish pop export on the international music scene and she is killing it, dental braces and all. 

So far she’s had hits with MNEK, Tinie Tempah as well as gaining a UK top ten single with her summer smash “Lush Life.”  Her voice is strong and belt-worthy, plus the trained ballerina can bust a serious move on stage.

Here are five things loaded you might know about this blonde bombshell with a whole lot of talent.

1

She Won 45 000 at 10-years-old

Zara sang Whitney Houston’s classic tune, “Greatest Love of All” on Swedish talent show “Talang Sverige” which earned her the top spot and 500 000 SEK (swedish krone) which is a whole lot of cash for a little girl.

She danced at the Royal Swedish Ballet School

Girl gets those moves from somewhere. Larsson was a student at the prestigious dance school in Stockholm up until last year when her career took off.

She definitely fulfills the stereotype of gorgeous, Swedish blonde by posting stunning pictures from wherever she ends up in the world. Full of gorgeous shots and staunch opinions, this girl is smart.

Plus funny, she posted a picture of her leg in a condom, a move meant to prove that guys are full of s**t when they say they’re “too big” to wrap it up. She also supports LGBT and civil rights judging by her posts. We like her more and more.

She told the Guardian earlier this year about how stressful it was for not being signed with a label at fourteen years old as she assumed life was over by 25 years old. “But now I’ve kind of realised that life begins at 25.”

Her dad was in a punk band that eventually became Nazi sympathizers

Eek. Thankfully he left before this happened and doesn’t agree with such tendencies. We’re glad he passed on the musical inclination to his daughter though.

Zara’s latest single “I Would Like,” is an amazing club banger and racing up the charts. 

Keep rocking it Zara, we’re watching!
