Whenever I discover new music I always wiki the artist to learn more about them, the inspiration for their jams, etc. Lorde is like Lana Del Rey only not as pouty and breathy and catty. Lorde is a more substantial Lana Del Rey, also Lorde aka Ella Yelich- O’Connor is only 16 (Lana is 27.) Her first single, Royals, is basically a Ballin’ on a Budget anthem.
My friends and I – we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come for money.
Royals is already charting in the United States and mark my words, this time next year Lorde will be a household name. Get to know her now, listen to all her music on Spotify.
