"So Good" is the second studio album by Swedish singer and songwriter Zara Larsson, and her first released internationally. It was released on 17 March 2017, through Epic Records and TEN Music Group.
While her personal confidence seems boundless, Larsson’s release strategy has been more cautious. This album has been trailed by no fewer than five singles, the first of which dropped way back in September 2015. Thankfully, ‘So Good’ justifies a protracted build-up and its pointed title. Without an ounce of false modesty, Larsson said recently: “I just thought [naming it] ‘So Good’ was easy because the album is so good.”
Still, ‘So Good’ isn’t a perfect pop album. There are some dull ballads towards the end, and the title track’s flimsy R&B isn’t even redeemed by its righteous opening line: “My love is more potent than anything in the cup you’re holding”. But like all the best pop stars, Larsson shines bright even when her material lets her down. And when it matches her, she’s basically irresistible. --- nme.com
