Mats Olle Söderlund (born 25 July 1967) is a Swedish musician and fashion model, best known under his stage name Günther.


Before he started working as an artist, he worked part-time in a clothing store. Gunther's 2004 song "Ding Dong Song" brought him country-wide recognition in his homeland, Sweden. The song topped the Swedish charts in 2004 which featured Günther's backup singers, the Sunshine Girls. A year later the campy phenomenon spread across Europe as indie rockers Franz Ferdinand were heard performing the song on Dutch radio.[1] In 2006, his song "Like Fire Tonight" was accepted into Melodifestivalen, a Swedish music competition. However, Günther and the Sunshine Girls finished sixth in the semi-final round and did not make the finals.

Günther announced on his website that he was working on a new album with the working title Dirty Man Swedish Sex Beast. In 2011, the first single, "Pussycat", became available on Günther's web site.[2]

In December 2013, Günther released the single "I'm Not Justin Bieber, B*tch". The song features strong electro house influences in its sound.[3] The track's music video has gone viral, gaining momentum among fans and having nearly three million views as of June 2016.[4]
