Music Video: SAARA - Ur Cool
You may well have heard of Finnish sensation Sara Maria Forsberg before, but you may not have realised that she can do more than speak gibberish in 20 different languages.
Last year the YouTube sensation known as Smoukahontas went viral with her video 'What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners', accumulating more than 14 million views and securing her an interview on the Ellen Show. Since then she has been signed to Capitol Records, relocated to LA and has been working with world-renowned music mogul Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins (Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears) to produce her debut single 'Ur Cool'.

Under her stage name SAARA, 'Ur Cool' was released on the 21st April 2015 and reached Number 1 on the Finnish iTunes within 24 hours. Sampling a viral vine clip by a boy named Elliot Smith, this 'bubblegum hip-hop' anthem might not showcase her powerful vocals, but is nevertheless a fun, creative and catchy song which introduces her entertaining personality to the music industry. Bound to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Cher Lloyd and Ariana Grande, we greatly anticipate SAARA's forthcoming album, due to be released later this year.
