Title: Zara Larsson
Post by: awonip on April 18, 2014, 12:10:49 PM
Well I've been looking for some scandinavian singers (lol) and stumbled across Zara Larsson.

She's signed to Epic and working with Dr Luke at the moment. She won Sweden's Got Talent aged just 10 years old.

Check out her youtube:  http://www.youtube.com/user/ZaraLarssonOfficial

Great voice, sounds like Rihanna a little.

Post by: AlexanderLaBrea on April 18, 2014, 03:07:24 PM
She has 2 EP's out. Go listen to "Uncover", She's not me pt. 1 & 2 (Katy Perry tweeted pt. 1 recently). She sounds quite a lot like Rihanna at times. Most of the Songs are written by songwriters signed to TEN Music here in Sweden.

That's because of her fanbase: she does that all the time with upcoming or unestablished artists...

Who have you worked with?

I worked with so many. Me and MNEK have done a lot of other songs. Me and the Max Martin team. Not Max Martin himself, but hopefully next time. The team is really good. The Monsters & Strangerz, I love them so much. And just a lot of super talented people -- R. City, Justin Tranter, so many good people. Whoever you meet, they're like, "I just wrote a No. 1 for this or that." Everyone has something to brag about, which is what I would do if I wrote that good songs.

Interesting statement about Dr Luke:

Last year, she also worked with Dr Luke, the hit producer accused of rape by Ke$ha (Luke denies the allegations and claims Ke$ha invented them to get out of a Sony contract with him. Further to Ke$ha filing the claim against Dr Luke, a New York court recently refused to release her from this contract).

“I believe it’s karma,” she says of the case. “I won’t be the one to say whether he raped her or not because I don’t know.” However, she makes a wider point about rape: “Too many women are not being believed when it comes to this. And to be honest, whether he’s a rapist or not, he’s not the nicest guy. He’s very talented, you can’t take that away from him, but where do we draw the line? I think Chris Brown is very talented, too, but I won’t support him because he’s an asshole.” Larsson says she’s thankful she doesn’t work with Dr Luke any more.

I remember that after Uncover, I got in touch with her record company to discuss potentially booking her for a gig. The fee was already normal for an artist that has one "hit", even though the public didn't know her yet back then. And out of the blue came the MNEK-collaboration "Never forget you", giving her a lot of publicity. And when I heard she'd sing "This one's for you" by Guetta, I though "my oh my, I guess the fees would be higher today".  ;D

I would still be interested in knowing the background-story why it was her who sang the Guetta-track. Is that something the record company decides to promote a new artist? I mean, it could have been another French artist, why her?
Title: Re: Zara Larsson
Post by: j.fco.morales on July 27, 2016, 10:34:30 PM
Because Epic is trying to place her: branding, lots of press and videos and stuff.

I meant the other way around, Mattman & Robin from Jason. And I also didn't mean stealing... more like... taking some production elements, the bassline, the strings and the structure of the lyrics (although that might be because Justin and Julia).

I also want to take note that Mattman & Robin started as Jason Gill's co-producers back in 2011, at least that's what Tidal's credits imply.

Well, I'm not sure: those are completely different approaches to arrangement.

While Jason's sound is really poppy -in a very swedish way, a bit over the top and melodic- and I agree with you that their first releases in 2013-2014 was more in a "swedish approach" (i.e: Tove Lo's Moments, their stuff with Hailee Steinfeld, their co prods with Jason for Eric Saade) After that, Mattman and Robin approach was very "foley": lots of details in the percussion and minimalistic sounds (ie: Hands To Myself, Worst In Me, Make Me Feel, If I'm Lucky). 

They're are very versatile though: they work with DNCE is veeeeery different from their previous work.
