Ella Yelich O’Connor doet op 12-jarige leeftijd mee aan een talentenjacht. Haar optreden baart opzien en de zangeres krijgt een platencontract.

Eind 2012 verschijnt het mini-album The Love Club. Nog geen jaar later verschijnt haar debuutalbum Pure Heroïne, waarvan de single Royals ook bij ons een hit wordt en de vierde plaats van de Top 40 bereikt. De single bereikt voor negen weken de eerste positie van de Billboard Hot 100.

In 2014 staat Team ruim drie-en-een-halve maand in de Top 40, maar komt in die periode niet hoger dan nummer 25. Later dat jaar wordt de openingstrack van het album, Tennis Court, de nieuwe single. Ook stelt de zangeres de soundtrack samen bij de film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. Zo is de zangeres samen met Haim, Pusha T en Q-Tip te horen op de track Meltdown die door Stromae is geproduceerd. In 2015 komen we Lorde tegen in de samenwerking met Disclosure op Magnets.

In 2017 komt Lorde met haar tweede studioalbum, Melodrama, waarvan de single Green Light als voorloper verschijnt.


Songtekst

Don't you think that it's boring how people talk
Making smart with their words again, well I'm bored
Because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killin' it
Never not chasing a million things I want
And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
Getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought
But I know they'll never own me (Yeah)

Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care (Yeah)
We're so happy
Even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)

Pretty soon I'll be getting on my first plane
I'll see the veins of my city like they do in space
But my head's filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames
How can I fuck with the fun again, when I'm known
And my boys trip me up with their heads again, loving them
Everything's cool when we're all in line for the throne
But I know it's not forever (Yeah)

Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care (Yeah)
We're so happy
Even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)

It looked alright in the pictures (Yeah)
Getting caught's half of the trip though, isn't it (Yeah)
I fall apart with all my heart (Yeah)
And you can watch from your window (Yeah)
And you can watch from your window

Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care (Yeah)
We're so happy
Even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)

And talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)
And talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)
Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)
And talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)
And talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)
Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like: yeah (Yeah)
