Grammy-nominated, 17-year-old Lorde will be touring in North America to promote her debut album “Pure Heroine”. The New Zealander – nominated for four Grammys this past month – announced that she’ll come to North America for a 16-date tour.
If you haven’t heard the song “Royals”, then you probably haven’t been listening to the radio at all this summer. According to Pollstar, the song has the following distinctions:
In August “Royals” earned Lorde the distinction of being the first solo female artist to top the U.S. alternative songs charts since 1996. Since then the song’s seven weeks at the top of the chart set the record for the longest No. 1 at alternative radio by a female artist. The tune also hit No.1 overall on the U.S. singles chart, remaining in the top spot for 9 weeks, in addition to topping the charts in an additional 45 countries. “Royals” wild success makes Lorde the youngest artist to reach No.1 since Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now” ruled the chart in November 1987.
