WHO: Our Next Up Artist of the Week is Zara Larsson and Clean Bandit!
WHY: Zara drew the attention of a nation when she won Sweden's got Talent. Once she won, she laid low to refine her voice until she was ready to debut with a smash-hit. Zara is beyond down to earth with killer pipes. When you hang out with Zara, you'll realize that she's just like any 19-year-old. When we say she's "pretty much all of us" it's true. She's OBSESSED with Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, and she shops at Topshop. She's an important person for women and teenagers to idolize because she's so strong in her beliefs. She believes it's important for girls to support each other and why it's important to be a feminist. Girl code ALWAYS.
FUN FACT: She has stickers of Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Rihanna on the back of her cell phone.
WHY: The musically dynamic trio known as "Clean Bandit" have made a name for themselves after collaborating with Jess Glynne, Zara Larsson, Marina + The Diamonds and more. Their "Rockabye" has reached double platinum and "Symphony" earned gold certification.
FUN FACT: The band started as a traditional string quartet and their first single was "Mozart's House."
