  • This self-penned song finds Zara Larsson addressing a former boyfriend.

    He kinda talks the way you talk
    A bit taller than what you are
    And since we've been through
    I found a better you

    Zara has found another guy that is similar to her ex, but is ultimately a better version of him.
  • Larsson debuted the song in acoustic during a surprise concert on the electric bus in Gothenburg in September 2016. The Swede performed the song on bus route 55 in front of totally unprepared passengers. "It was a very special recording session, partly because of performing 'Better You' for the first time, and above all because of the unusual setting, where none of the passengers knew what was going to happen," said Larsson.
