Lorde's 'Royals' Dethrones Miley Cyrus on Billboard Hot 100!

Lorde's 'Royals' Dethrones Miley Cyrus on Billboard Hot 100!

Lorde has scored her first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 with her smash hit “Royals” and has knocked Miley Cyrus‘ song “Wrecking Ball” off the top of the chart in the process!

The 16-year-old Kiwi singer is now the youngest solo artist to top the chart since Tiffany did it back in November 1987 with her song “I Think We’re Alone Now.” She is also the most recently born artist to top the Hot 100.

Lorde‘s brand new album Pure Heroine was released this week and we can’t wait to see how it places on the chart. “Royals” is currently atop iTunes Top Singles chart and the album has sat steady at number two on the iTunes Top Albums chart since its release, behind only Justin Timberlake‘s highly anticipated album.

ARE YOU A FAN of Lorde and her song “Royals”?

    Congrats to Lorde! She is quite the talented singer-songwriter for one so young.


    There are always two queens sharing the king’s throne. That will never change, ever…

    And she wrote it herself without an army of mercenary producers.

    I think im the only one who thinks that Royals song is just gibberish. The lyrics dont seem to make any sense…

  • Streak

    Good for her being a genuine talent but oh god can’t stand her songs nor her voice. When “Royals” comes on I switch radio channels. Hipster cr*p!

  • Alliana

    I’m a fan of any song that knocks the wrecking ball known as Miley Cyrus off the number one spot. Miley “bought” that spot by using her fans on twitter and by going nude in the video. If the song was as good as she said it was it would still be #1.

    I find her repulsive
