Lorde and HAIM covering Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough” off her 1993 album, Tuesday Night Music Club, is exactly what the Spice Girls meant when they preached the gospel of girl power.
Lorde will celebrate the success of her first full-length album, Pure Heroine, tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 pm. PT by taking to David Letterman’s stage inside New York’s historic Ed Sullivan Theater.
Raekwon leaves the track untouched for the most part, aside from adding a few of his own verses that sort of counteract Lorde’s original critiques of excessively indulgent musicians.
Cyrus, at 20, is hardly an old timer herself. And notably for the charts, that means the No. 1 and No. 2 spots (Cyrus is still in possession of the latter) were born in the ’90s.
Looking like a ’90s riot girl in her babydoll dress, New Zealand singer-songwriter Ella Yelich-O’Connor (aka Lorde) kept things laid back.
The tracklist for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ soundtrack has been revealed and it features a few well-known artists alongside some familiar up-and-comers.
Lorde talks about how she wrote her hit song, “Royals,” in an hour, loving HAIM and having no idea who Stone Temple Pilots are.
“So much has happened in my life and I really want the album to reflect those changes and experiences,” she said.
In the follow-up to “Royals” (now at No. 3 on the Hot 100), Lorde is speaking up for the underdog.
Selena Gomez slowed it down during a recent tour stop in Amsterdam at the Heineken Music Hall and treated fans to a special cover song, taking on the hit single “Royals” by Lorde.
