    I've never been a Zara Larsson fan (apparently I did start the All The Time thread - weird), but this new one is fucking fantastic.



    The structure is a bit WEIRD, her vocals are HEAVENLY and it's so short and addictive you immediately want to start over when it ends. It must be the least basic thing she's ever done. Honestly, total banger.

    It's okay but I wouldn't call it a banger.

    *cut to me proclaiming Zara the official Queen of Pop for the 2020/2021 saison 3 months later and 'Love me Land' the 17th best pop song of all time*

    The idea of her is better than the reality.

    I don't understand how she went from being pop's next great hope to suddenly being somewhat C-LIST. Ruin My Life wasn't even a flop, and had good radio support! Very strange.

    Anyway I'm generally here for light and breezy pop bops from Zara, let's hope she can scam THIS ONE into being a hit :disco:

    it's pretty great for a 7th single of such a disastrous campaign :disco: Apparently all 7 will make it onto the album but there's not even a release date??

    It's the Swedish pop chanteuse Zara Larsson clad in a sheer bodysuit with a sequined bra and thong, lay backwards, in a position that could be considered either post-coital or pre-bukkake, on a blue velvet piece in a dark room (or perhaps a darkroom), @OutSynk. :disco:

    Anyone else read "love me land" in the voice of a farmer?

    it's amazing, her best single in yonks (bar All the Time which was one of the best songs of nineteen).

    This is so short, especially considering it doesn't really kick in straight away, but it is still quite a thrill. The song really does bring out the sweet spot in her voice and is her at her most Rihanna-esque.

    Some of her singles are not that exciting but this joins Lush Life and All The Time as the cream of her crop.

    The length and weird structure really makes this feel more like an interlude or an album opener than a hit single.

    I had no idea Carola covered Anita Meyer. It’s good but I prefer Why Tell Me Why.

    poor Zara, everything about her reads so good on paper but somehow gets lost in translation :(

    While Love Me Land does nothing, her duet with Carola has shot up to #2 in the Swedish charts :disco:

    They've annoyingly only put it on Spotify in Sweden, presumably not to confuse her international fans. But here's the Studio version.

    Love Me Land is done, WOW is the current single but I don't think it's worth having a new thread for it :(
