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