You can call her queen bee and baby she'll rule, she'll rule, she'll rule, she'll rule.

Let me live that fantasy
, also known as Lorde
(born November 7, 1996), is a teenage indie pop singer from New Zealand. Her music deals with the problems of adolescence, paralleled with her own rise to fame. Her debut release, The Love Club EP
, went #2 in her own country, and her songs "Royals" and "Tennis Court" went #1. In September 2013, she released Pure Heroine
worldwide, which gained critical acclaim for its production and lyrical content. It gained an Updated Re-release
in December 2013, featuring a bonus track, "No Better", songs from The Love Club EP
, and the "Tennis Court" B-side "Swingin Party
". The closest comparison her music could get is Lana Del Rey
. Dedicated to the darker sides of growing up, and life. She taps into the same disillusionment around the world right now. If younger and less glossy. She's won 2 Grammys and 1 BRIT.
She also reached a new height of fame when it was revealed at E3 2014 that her cover of "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" was used in the Cinematic Trailer for Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Unity
, and it was recently revealed that she would be "curating
" the soundtrack for the first part of the final Hunger Games
should not be confused with Lordi
- although she's confirmed
her stage name is pronounced as "Lord", not "Lord-ee".
