If you haven’t heard of Lorde yet, where the heck have you been this year? Hailing from New Zealand, this singer-songwriter has taken the world by storm this year with 3 huge hits, most notable with her first single “Royals”, which will be in the top 5 of most song-of-the-year lists.
Lorde’s musical style is one that has crossover appeal, which is evident by the fact you can hear her music on all different types of radio stations (rock, alternative, pop, etc.) and has charted on all major Billboard charts. Arguably, the only other band/artist to do this to the same degree this year would be Imagine Dragons.
What do you make of Lorde’s success this year? Should we expect to see more great things from this young artist? Sound off in the comments below or tweet me @MusicTrajectory
“We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know we’re on each other’s team
I’m kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air
