Lorde -- Discussion Thread

a 16 year old New Zealand sensation, (& she didn't come from any reality singing shows either) Her song "Royals" is one of the biggest songs in the country with it being at number 1 on itunes & 3 on the hot 100

The album is good. Great debut, especially for her age.

I happened to hear her on Ryan Seacrests radio show & he almost sounded dumbfounded that a 16 year old could get a record contract & not be from a reality singing show. She writes all of her songs as well which as we know is very rare in the pop music industry

a 94/100 review from Billboard

Yeah, great album. The production on "Tennis Court" is very slick and probably my favorite song on the album.

You know as much shit as people still give Fallon, It's still pretty cool to tune in and see the host of a show singing/humming the musical guest's song to the point where the audience is singing along.

I'll take it over Letterman & his 'i have no idea who the hell this is but here they are anyways" approach.

I did appreciate the time on Letterman when The Heavy played a song he actually enjoyed (seems rare) and he had them do an immediate encore. That was kind of fun.

Finally picked this up. I'm really enjoying it. Hard to believe she is only 16.

I guess she just turned 17, but I guess I should say I'm surprised a 16 year old made an album like this.

Every time I hear her sing "care" from the song Royals I think of South Park.
Especially the song fatty doo doo. I hear "cyair"

I hardly EVER buy music anymore, but I bought her EP on iTunes many months before Royals got hot. I just loved her voice and the songs (and I'm a 43 year old man!).

I saw her on the Grammy's and she looks old and awkward. It was very weird. She's very talented, though.

Because she doesn't give a fuck about what pop stars should look like. She intentionally did her hair that way and dressed that way on the biggest stage of her life. That takes balls.
