In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine. The album would go triple-platinum, win two GRAMMY®
Awards, and spawn the seven-times platinum record-breaking international juggernaut single, “Royals,” and quadruple-platinum follow up “Team.” The former cemented LORDE as “the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987.” Time exalted her amongst the “Most Influential Teenagers in the World,” she landed on Forbes’s “30 Under 30” List, graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed alongside the surviving members of Nirvana during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. She also curated the official soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and recorded “Yellow Flicker Beat” as the lead single.
This year LORDE made her anxiously awaited return with the new single “Green Light,” from her second full-length album “MELODRAMA”, having marked the first taste of new music that set the tone for her highly anticipated performances at marquee festivals including Coachella, Governors Ball, and Bonnaroo.
Lorde has been nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Grammy Awards for her critically-acclaimed sophomore album Melodrama.
She is the only female artist nominated in the major category.
In 2014, the Kiwi singer won two Grammys for best pop solo performance and song of the year for her smash hit Royals.
