Zara Larsson Comes For Your Man On New Single “Ain’t My Fault”

Swedish pop star Zara Larsson makes her bid for (solo) US chart glory on Friday (September 2) with new single, “Ain’t My Fault.” The song was co-written with “Never Forget You” cohort MNEK and is literally about stealing your man. “The topic is me talking to a girl about her man and I basically stole her man,” the 18-year-old said in an interview with Shazam (below). “I’m like, ‘It’s not my fault that I’m better than you’… and I don’t know why we wrote it because I would never say something like that to a girl. No! We’re supposed to team. If we could tweak the lyrics that would be great.”

That interview was recorded in March, so she had time to come at the issue from a slightly different angle. However, there’s another layer to the song. “It’s so much about that slut-shaming,” Zara added. “Two girls always competitive. I don’t like that.” Her goal? “I just want to be able to sing about stuff I can I can actually say and stand for in real life.” The Swede has a lot of momentum with a string of international hits, so it will be interesting to see if she can join pop’s elite with this banger. Bring on 2016’s man-stealing anthem!
