Those lyrics “We’re bigger than we ever dreamed/ And I’m in love with being queen” are starting to take on a different meaning for Lorde, the young pop singer from New Zealand whose monogenre single “Lorde” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the iTunes singles chart last week as well as broke the record for longest No. 1 at Alternative Radio by a Female Artist. (Seven weeks is the longest a female has stayed at No. 1? C’mon, alternative radio!) The latest stop on her media blitz was an appearance on Ellen, where she performed, of course, “Royals.” Watch her complete the late night/morning show/daytime talk show hat trick below.
Lorde’s Pure Heroine is out now via Lava/Republic.
