Lorde, the musician who rose to fame in 2013 with her hit song, “Royals,” in her adult alternative pop/ rock style, and had another hit song with her song “Team” gives a different perspective and way to look at music. At only 18, she won two Grammy awards for her successful song, Royals. Her style is darker and conflicts with the very happy, popular style of music from female artists. Her songs are upbeat and fun, yet provide a relatable message for many people. Her darker style sets her apart from artists in her field and highlights her as a unique artist! While I found “Royals” to be amazing when I first got into it, I thought her music was very unique, considering “Team” was also very upbeat and both songs had a heavy message that whether or not you can relate to it, you can appreciate.
“Royals”, with its iconic and catchy chorus, that features “Gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in thebathroom, blood-stained ball gowns, trashing the hotel room,” was the track that introduced Lorde into the world. Now that everyone knows her name, she is not the only one celebrating the successful album that has been out for two years now.
Lorde, a.k.a. Ella Yellich-O’Connor, who hails from New Zealand, released her first album, “Pure Heroine,” on 27 September 2013, and this year, the very date of the 27th marked her second anniversary. Last year, it was reported that Lorde was celebrating her second anniversary by putting out her upbeat, dancy track, “Yellow Flicker Beat.” This year, we see that people are tattooing themselves with the 18-year-old’s name and album name.
