Every now and again and pop star shows up who just “gets it”.
Icelandic pop princess-to-be Glowie made a splash when her highly infectious debut single “Body” was released in 2018 – the empowering, body-positive tune (which was released alongside a remix with rapper of-the-moment Saweetie) was instantly put on repeat after first listen.
Then came “Cruel” – the other end of the relationship schedule where, again through simple lyrics and a hooky melody, she asks “what did I ever do to make you be so cruel?”. And, most recently, the lead single off her “Where I Belong EP”, “I’m Good” follows in the footsteps of her previous pop bops with a chant-worthy anthem about self-empowerment and determination.
Even without listening to Glowie’s music, it isn’t difficult to realise that there’s a star ready to blossom. Whether it’s her star-worthy looks or impressive list of collaborators (including Julia Michaels and Tayla Parx, the latter of which worked extensively on Ariana Grande’s “Thank U Next” and is now considered a friend by Glowie) – everything is just where it needs to be for her to become a household name.
Glowie sat down with James Gilmore to talk moving to London from Iceland, the meaning behind the “Where I Belong EP” and finding friends in collaborators.
