Lorde. Can’t. Quit.
Not only does she harness four GRAMMY nominations, but Lorde‘s multi-platinum-selling smash hit, “Royals” hits the #1 spot at Urban Radio this week. The single initially made the Top 10 list for Urban Radio in December and has powered through to #1, being the first time that a New Zealand artist has dominated Urban airwaves in the United States. Simultaneously, the song holds #1 at five formats right now—Urban, Alternative, AAA, Top 40, and Hot AC.
Her unique style and incredibly catchy yet eloquently and intelligently written music on Pure Heroine has proven to be the ultimate crossover album.
Lorde truly is pop’s new leader. Congratulations, Lorde!
