Lorde – Royals

Normally when I hear about a new singer and they are 16 years old my first reaction is to dismiss them as another fabricated pop artist.  In the case of Lorde (Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor) I hear something quite different, a more mature sound.  When I hear that sound from someone that young I think they may have career that lasts longer than five years, which is the case of most young pop artists. Lorde release her first album at the end of September 2013.  The song of the week was released in March 2013 and found its way to the top of the Billboard chart in New Zealand (Lorde’s country) and USA.  Lorde is the first ever New Zealand artist to have a number one song in the US.  Enjoy the song of the week called Royals.
