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

I do my makeup in
Somebody else's car
We order different drinks
At the same bars
I know about what you did
And I wanna scream the truth
She thinks you love the beach
You're such a damn liar

Those great whites, they have big teeth
Hope they bite you
Thought you said that you would always be in love
But you're not in love no more
Did it frighten you
How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
On the light up floor

But I hear sounds
In my mind
Brand new sounds
In my mind
But, honey, I'll be seein' you
'ever I go
But, honey, I'll be seein' you
Down every road
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it

Cause, honey, I'll come get my things
But I can't let go
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
Oh, I wish I could get my things
And just let go
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it

Sometimes I wake up in
A different bedroom
I whisper things
The city sings 'em back to you

All those rumors, they have big teeth
Hope they bite you
Thought you said that you would always be in love
But you're not in love no more
Did it frighten you
How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor
On the light up floor

But I hear sounds
In my mind
Brand new sounds
In my mind
But, honey, I'll be seein' you
'ever I go
But, honey, I'll be seein' you
Down every road
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it

Cause, honey, I'll come get my things
But I can't let go
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
Cause, honey, I'll come get my things
But I can't let go
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
Yes, honey, I'll come get my things
But I can't let go
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
Oh, I wish I could get my things
And just let go
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it

I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it
That green light, I want it
