Swedish pop princess Zara Larsson dropped her sophomore album this week. So Good features a mish mash of pop vocals, EDM beats and hip hop features.
Larsson’s “Never Forget You” and “Lush Life” received big-time airplay on top 40 radio stations this past year. So Good does not disappoint either.
Standout tracks include “TG4M,” a tropical pop ditty, and “Symphony,” an EDM love ballad with Clean Bandit that showcases Larsson’s softer side.
Larsson brings the girl power on “Make That Money Girl” where she repeats “queen” in the backing track and encourages women to get on their thrones and aspire to be future presidents. It includes all the necessary elements to be the theme song of a women’s march.
“Ain’t My Fault” mixes EDM claps with hip hop beats to create a sassy track perfect for any getting ready playlist.
“Lush Life” still remains one of the biggest earworms on the tracklist, though it isn’t technically a new release for Larsson.
The title track “So Good” features Ty Dolla $ign and while it isn’t necessarily his best feature (we still think “Work From Home” is better), Larsson’s vocals shine in the repetitive soulful refrain “so good, so good, so good.”
Though So Good contains such a range of pop sub-styles, it’s clear that Larsson has pinpointed her place in pop music with her sophomore effort.
