Zara Larsson is fresh off the release of her empowering new single “Can’t Tame Her,” released on Thursday (Jan. 26), and the 24-year-old pop star sat down with Billboard‘s Rania Aniftos to discuss the track.
“If you are in the public eye of any sort, I think a lot of people have a perception of who you are and who you should be,” the singer says of her new song. “People want to put girls in a box of what you should do or not.

I think it’s a blessing and a curse, where I’ll never really be satisfied.”
She adds with a laugh, “I still want that number one on Billboard.”
