Lorde, who just dropped her latest single called “Solar Power”, told the paper that replicating the success of “Royals” isn’t in her plans.

“What a lost cause,” she said. “Can you imagine? I’m under no illusion. That was a moonshot.”

The song, which was inspired by a photo Lorde had seen of Kansas City Royals’ George Brett, lit the Billboard charts on fire and stayed there on the number one spot for over 8 weeks in 2013.

In the same interview, Lorde opened up about working on her music with Jack Antonoff, and blasted rumors the two were romantically involved.
