OK, it’s not that hinted-at collaboration with Ariana Grande, but Zara Larsson fans do have some new music to plug into.
The 20-year-old Swedish pop artist shared “Don’t Worry Bout Me,” a bouncy new self-empowerment anthem, produced by The Struts.
With “Worry” dropping late Wednesday, Larsson continues to add “the finishing touches on her forthcoming second full-length,” the followup to 2017’s gold-certified So Good, her label Epic explains in a statement.
“Worry” follows “Ruin My Life,” which cracked the Billboard Hot 100 in January and has raced past 250 million streams, according to Epic, and it sets up her next official single, details for which haven’t been announced.
On it, she sings, “Don’t worry ’bout me/ You should worry ’bout you/ Yeah, that’s your problem, so fix it/ ‘Cause I ain’t none of your business/ Now I’ve been sleeping okay.”
Grande set tongues wagging last month when she revealed on Twitter that she’d been in the studio with Larsson. Ari isn’t her only high-powered pal. Larsson will be supporting Ed Sheeran on his 2019 European tour, and she’s booked solid through the northern summer with headline shows and festival dates on both sides of the Atlantic.
