Lorde- Pure Heroine: Top 10 Singles in US and UK

Lorde- Pure Heroine
United States- As her debut album was released, Lorde achieved success in United States as her album “Pure Heroine” had gone triple platinum as awarded by RIAA. It also had a high peak at the top 3. She is the most successful artist from New Zealand to ever grace the United States. She even became a very popular star in the country through this sound of her as a rare kind of artist. ¬†She also achieved similar success with her singles. Check those successful singles as they reached the top 10 below:
Royals- #1
Team- #6
With just her debut single, Lorde got a momentum for reaching number 1 with Royals. It was even very successful for being awarded with 7x platinum. She also achieved success with her upbeat track “Team” when it reached number 6 and was awarded with 4x platinum. Lorde also charted with some of her songs but peaked lower. First was “Tennis Court” at number 71 and followed by “Glory and Gore” with number 68.

United Kingdom- Lorde also had hits in United Kingdom. Aside from a top 5 album with “Pure Heroine” and achieved certification from BPI, she also scored a top 10 hit. Yeah, just one top 10 single.
Royals- #1
Lorde really had gone successful elsewhere with her single “Royals” including United Kingdom when it also went to number 1. She also charted with some of her songs like “Tennis Court” (number 78), “Team” (number 29), and the Brit Awards performancd of “Royals” and “White Noise” at number 72.

Lorde’s biggest hit ever both in United States and United Kingdom was “Royals” which reached number 1 in both countries. Elsewhere, it was also well-received. The song has a great R&B beat and talks about the lifestylez of the rich and famous, particularly celebrities, which she doesn’t want to become. I am sharing thay great song below and groove with its beat, and sing with its melodic tune:

Album’s Singles Review: Lorde “Pure Heroine”

“Pure Heroine” is the first album of Lorde, despite releasing an EP prior. The album is a great album with its electro pop and trip hop sounds on it. Lorde also showcased her beautifully dark voice. It went on to become a successful record after selling millions of copies worldwide. The album was a success in rock charts, despite not being a real rock album.

Royals
“Royals” was released as the first single from the album which was great choice. The song became very known for referencing avoiding the superstar way of life. It is an electropop song with R&B beats on it. It became globally successful worldwide, but a surprise “rock” hit in America reaching number 1, despite not sounding rock.
Rate: 9.5 out of 10

Tennis Court
“Tennis Court” was released as second single, and a simple beautiful song with its simple beat and verses. I love the combination of pop, electronic, trip hop, and R&B in this song. The song entered music charts but not as successful as “Royals”. It went to top 10 in rock charts though. The music video shows Lorde in a plain background with some creepy facial expressions.
Rate: 8.75 out of 10

Team
“Team” is the third single from “Pure Heroine”. It also served as her second most successful single from the album after charting in numerous countries, including the top 10 in America. The song is more upbeat than “Royals” with darker beats and vocals. The intro reminds me of “American Life” by Madonna, and the lyrics is a good way to pay tribute to where she came from.
Rate: 9.5 out of 10

No Better
“No Better” was released as a promotional single and did not received a widespread release. It is the lightest single released from the album.
Rate: 8.5 out of 10

Glory and Gore
“Glory and Gore” is the last single from “Pure Heroine”. It is a good electro pop song with dark vocals, wordings, and sound. Despite the low sound, it can be considered her darkest single being released.
Rate: 8.75 out of 10
