Lorde (born Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor on born 7th November 1996) is a New Zealand singer-songwriter.Read More...
Instead of singing about love and partying like most pop stars, Lorde focuses mostly on adolescence and fearing fame.
She became a figure on the international scene with her initialThe Love Club EP , but didn't really start to blow up until her song Royals reached #1 on charts worldwide, including the US. Her fame-criticizing lyrics, sparse production, and age of 16 all combined to make her a polarizing figure in the media.
Initially, she was written off as a one hit wonder, but her top-ten second single Team, curation of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay soundtrack, and her friendship with other A-listers like Taylor Swift has kept her in the spotlight. Even as of 2016, Lorde’s Twitter account has over 4.29 million followers.

- LyricsI've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no post code envy
But every song's like:
- LyricsWait 'til you're announced
We've not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon Your Greatness and she'll send the call out
Send the call out
- LyricsDon't you think that it's boring how people talk
Making smart with their words again, well I'm bored
Because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killin' it
Never not chasing a million things I want
And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
- LyricsThere's a humming in the restless summer air
And we're slipping off the course that we prepared
But in all chaos, there is calculation
Dropping glasses just to hear them break
You've been drinking like the world was gonna end (it didn't)
- LyricsWe're never done with killing time
Can I kill it with you?
'Til the veins run red and blue
We come around here all the time
Got a lot to not do, let me kill it with you
