Lorde will be performing with special guest Lo-Fang at the Boulevard Pool inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on April 16th.
Employing a stylish mix of arty, confessional bedroom pop and club-ready electro-rock that has drawn comparisons to the likes of Grimes, Lana Del Rey, and Sky Ferreira, New Zealand singer/songwriter Ella Yelich-O‘Connor, who goes by the stage name Lorde, became an Internet sensation at the age of 16 with the video for her debut single, “Royals,” which garnered over 156,000,000 views (and counting) on YouTube. You too can see the video below.
Her 2013 debut EP, The Love Club, hit the number one spot on both the New Zealand and Australian charts. The New Zealander continued her meteoric rise to fame in 2013 with a growing fan base and began sessions for her debut album, Pure Heroine, with producer Joel Little.
Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O‘Connor, known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer and songwriter. Born in Takapuna and raised in Devonport, Auckland, she became interested in performing as a child. In her early teens, she signed with Universal Music Group and was later paired with the songwriter and record producer Joel Little, who co-wrote and produced most of Lorde’s works. Her first major release, The Love Club EP, was commercially released in March 2013. The project charted at number two on the national record charts of Australia and New Zealand.
In mid-2013, Lorde released her debut single “Royals”. It became an international crossover hit, peaking atop the US Billboard Hot 100 and eventually made Lorde the youngest solo artist to achieve a US number-one single since Tiffany with her number-one hit “I Think We’re Alone Now” in 1987. Later that year, she released her debut studio album, Pure Heroine. The record peaked atop the charts of Australia and New Zealand and charted at number three on the US Billboard 200. Its following singles include “Tennis Court”, “Team”, “No Better” and “Glory and Gore”. – Wikipedia
