What You Didn’t Know About Lorde


Most people know her by her stage name, Lorde, but her actual name is  Ella Yelich-O’Connor.  The New Zealand songwriter is remarkably only 16 years old!  She is the youngest and first New Zealand solo artist to have a number one song in the United States.  Her first track was released on November 22, 2012, and her first single, “Royals”, débuted at number 1 on the New Zealand’s Top 40 and also reached number 1 on the Billboard Top 100. Her début album, Pure Heroine,  was released on September 27, 2013.  If you listen to Royals as much as I do, you should really look into some of this other phenomenal work she does.     I wasn’t really aware that she had more hits out there until I started research her and her background.  Some of her other popular hits include, “Tennis Courts,” “Ribs,” “White Teeth Teens,” and finally, “Team.”  It is said that she even turned down an opportunity to open for Katy Perry.  



She has become one of my new and upcoming favorite artists.  Check out these songs and let me know what you guys think!

  4. Like all the other comments on here i had no idea she was sixteen, that is absolutely mind-blowing. When she sings, she sounds like she is much older i would have never expected she would be that young.
