Have you heard of Lorde?
Surely you’ve heard the song Royals.
But if not, have a listen.
And try not to fall in love with Lorde’s deep, wise-beyond-her-16-years voice.
Yes, sister is 16.
In Royals she sings about not caring about money or superficial things, pointing out that she comes from a crappy neighborhood and definitely didn’t come from money. But that doesn’t matter because girl is driving a Cadillac in her dreams.
By now I’m sure she’s able to buy herself a few Cadillacs, but I love her just the same.
In other songs she talks about not really wanting fame, sings about teenage things, but in a sort of adult manner.
She writes her own music and it’s paired with some pretty dope, understated bass and beats. Within the first few notes of Royals, I was hooked, but I’m pleasantly surprised that I’m digging her entire album, The Love Club EP.
Check it out. It will make your Monday better, I promise.
