Lorde

Emerging as a fully formed enigma from her native New Zealand in 2013, Lorde tapped into an untouched well of alienation, becoming the poster child for a generation who found refuge from the eternal excess of the 2010s by submerging themselves in moody art. "Royals," the hit single that made her an international phenomenon, became a genuine sensation, topping the charts in country after country and being covered by elder statesmen like Bruce Springsteen and Jack White, a move that functioned a bit as a benediction. Lorde didn't need their blessing, though. The singer/songwriter struck a chord, functioning as the dark corollary to the bright, happy pop of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry and thereby becoming an icon for teenagers who felt older than their years.

Born Ella Yelich-O'Connor on November 7, 1996 in Takapuna, New Zealand, Lorde delved into art at an early age. By the time she was entering adolescence, she started performing as a duo with her friend Louis McDonald, winning a talent contest at Belmont Intermediate School in May 2009. Soon, the pair were featured on the Radio New Zealand's Afternoons show hosted by Jim Mora and, on the strength of this performance and a tape McDonald's father sent to Universal, the record label signed a development deal for Lorde. Throughout 2010, she continued to attend school and perform with McDonald, but 2011 is when things started to turn a little more serious. Universal teamed the singer with vocal coach Frances Dickinson and started to write originals, often with the assistance of other songwriters, but nothing clicked until her A&R head Scott Maclachlan introduced her to Joel Little. The former lead singer of Goodnight Nurse, Little proved a good collaborator for the fledgling singer/songwriter and the pair recorded the Love Club EP, which appeared on SoundCloud in November 2012.

The Love Club EP swiftly earned an audience, so Universal released it commercially in March 2013; it peaked at two on the New Zealand and Australia charts. The reason for its immediate success was "Royals," which was spun off as a single in the summer of 2013 and soon swept across the globe, where it topped the charts in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Italy, and reached the Top 10 in most other Western countries. Her full-length debut, Pure Heroine, followed in September 2013 and it also became an international smash, earning double-platinum certification in the U.S., quintuple platinum certification in New Zealand, and going gold in the U.K. Further singles followed -- "Tennis Court" and "Team," the latter of which turned into a Top 10 hit in the U.S. -- and Lorde worked Pure Heroine into 2014, when she then turned her attention to writing and recording her second album. She released her first new song since Pure Heroine, "Yellow Flicker Beat," in September 2014, but this wasn't from a new album, it was taken from the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

90% of people marry their 7th grade love. Since you have read this you will have good news tonight. If you don't pass this on 9 nine comments then your worst week starts, this isn't fake. Apparently if you copy and paste this in ten comments in ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will be either kissed or be asked out tomorrow. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you.

Don't read this you will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will will be the best day of your life. Now that you have started reading this don't stop this is so freaky but if you read this and ignore it you will have very bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 144 minutes when you're done press the space at and your crushes name will appear in bright letters on the screen this is so freaky it actually works.
