Ending the year in iconic style is Norway’s most streamed female artist Astrid S, who has teamed up with fellow pop star Dagny, on their collaborative new single, “Pretty.”

The combination of these two artists creates the ultimate dancefloor-ready pop-bop with lyrics encapsulating relationship turbulence that many fans will relate to. “Pretty” displays captivating instrumentals building throughout, with an electro-pop feel, creating a playful soundscape to carry us through the party season. Astrid’s ease of articulating the uncertainties of relationships as a woman and Dagny’s introduction on the track melds perfectly, cementing “Pretty” as one of the standout pop moments of the year.

Astrid S explains, 

It’s been really exciting to work with Dagny in the studio. I’m such a big fan of her work, and I am so happy we get to release “Pretty” together.

With over 8M monthly Spotify listeners, and following the release of her debut album ‘Leave it Beautiful’, Astrid S is on an irresistible rise to showcase her talents as a writer voicing heartache of love for fans to have fun with. Aside from her music, Astrid S joined Greta Thunberg for her Fridays for Future event in Sweden and has committed to touring sustainably to stand by her beliefs. Astrid produces unparalleled collaborations with pop’s biggest artists and has previously teamed up with talents such as JP Cooper, Shawn Mendes, and NOTD, amongst others. Adding Dagny to the list of notable collaborators was an organic move and felt like a natural union for both musicians. 

The critically acclaimed Dagny’s distinctive style of pop music was established after her debut hit “Backbeat” in 2015, drew fans from all over the world. Since then, the Norwegian hitmaker has put together one of the most compelling discographies in dance-pop. Dagny has collaborated with artists such as Børns, Steve Aoki, Seeb, and pop sensation Katy Perry, with whom she wrote “Never Really Over.” Dagny’s brand of shimmering off-kilter pop has taken her all over the world, selling out headline shows and wowing thousands of fans internationally and her 2x platinum debut album ‘Strangers/Lovers’ includes the smash hit “Somebody,” which has been certified 4x platinum.

On ‘collaborating with Astrid S,’ Dagny continues, 

The whole process has been so much fun, from being in the studio together, doing the photoshoot and filming, and just hanging out has been really fun. Astrid is an amazing songwriter, so it’s been a creative and great experience to write music together.
