Zara Larsson has teased she may be currently working on a K-pop collaboration with the likes of EXO or BTS.

You know, just two of the biggest groups on the scene right now, with the latter just taking over the world on a massive tour, earning them an allegiance of new ARMYs.

Zara, who has been busy working on new music, releasing latest single Ruin My Life last month, has made no secret of her love of K-pop, previously saying I think I need to get a little more into it.

Now it seems shes met her words with some actions, speaking with on the hint she might be collaborating with an EXO or BTS she told us: Oh absolutely. I think we have some really exciting news next year – thats all I have to say.

Yeah Im excited, I really am.

The star, 20, who took out the Swedish instalment of Britains Got Talent when she was just 10, has fast become a household name through her songs – but it took several years for her hit Lush Life to put her on the worldwide map when she was 18 in 2015.

I started really young off the show and nothing really happened, it was very quiet for a while coz I was only 10. I was eager to get out there, but I had to wait a few years to get signed and for people to look at me as a real artist and not a child star, she told us. I was devastated, I thought my career was over when I was 10.

In her advice to young punters on X Factor in the UK, she said: I know the time comes if you keep working hard and stay true to who you are, and work with good people – dont stop believing in yourself. There will be times when you wonder if youre doing the right things, but if you have people who believe in you, youll go far.

Now, almost alongside her tunes, its her provocative and uncensored social media presence that has also caught the worlds attention.

After posting a shot several years ago on her Instagram, condom pulled up the length of her leg to encourage men to use them, the singer has teamed up with Durex to yet again encourage safe sex.

Profits from the sale of a special edition condom – created alongside Aids organisation (RED) – will go towards a programme in South Africa in the aim reduce HIV infections in girls by keeping them in school. A very worthy cause.

For me I just feel like it was such a great campaign, provocative, and I feel like it went hand in hand with the person I am, what I stand for, she told us of using her voice for such sexual health advocacy. I will obviously use my voice for a good cause which I believe this is, and Im also very passionate about women and questions surrounding womens health, womens bodies and female empowerment.

However in using her voice in such a manner, she revealed shes been the target of death threats, from, as she described them, many, many offended men.

But it wont stop her.

I feel like if you can help spread the message by putting your name to something lifesaving its the best thing ever, she said. To be an artist, you sort of have to share a bit of your personality.

So why not share it with a great message? It makes artists multi-dimensional, I am much more than a singer. I am my own person and I have strong opinions I want to share them.
