16-year-old New Zealand native Lorde and her massive single "Royals" has taken the no.1 spot on the iTunes singles charts, knocking "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus to the number 2 slot. That's pretty impressive given that Miley seems to be the artist everyone is talking about.
Earlier in March, Miley Cyrus posted to her twitter account “My new music is gonna shut everyone up.” Well, that didn’t exactly happen for the Hannah Montana star. But despite the backlash she’s received for her outlandish dance moves, Miley seems to have found a silver lining with all this attention she’s been receiving. Her music has grown to be very popular. This summer, her song ‘We Can’t Stop’ resides in the Top 5 of the Hot 100 chart. Furthermore, her next song ‘Wrecking Ball’ became her first No. 1 song on the Hot 100 chart. She made quite a statement with her ‘Wrecking Ball' music video. Due to her shocking nudity and gestures during close-up shots, a lot of her critics have labeled her video as vulgar. It seems like this is all part of her plan to reach stardom as a music artist. It’s quite clear that the 20-year-old has successfully reinvented herself as an up-and-coming pop star. Whatever it is she’s doing, it’s definitely working in her favor.
In case you haven’t heard, the world is ending this Friday, December 21st. Fortunately, New York’s up and coming popstar Grace Danger has the perfect song to take us all home, “Love Me Like It’s the End of the World.”
London's twin duo bentcousin's debut will be out in February, but can get a taste of their sound with the laid back lounge track "Think I Like Your Girlfriend More Than You," now.
