People want Lorde to be the new pop act, however, I believe she's more akin to Florence. She has a cult following, is really talented, and just goes about doing her own thing. I honestly don't imagine her being as big as she was. She's not a one hit wonder, but, like I said, she'll be more comparable to Florence than any normal/regular pop act.

The Little Blingsters are SHOOKT

Yes but it's true.  I don't give a sh*t if a song isnt liked.  If I LOVE it that's all that matters, to me.

Personally I love the song but the chorus is horrible so I think that hurts it replay value a lot and the fact that it isnt very catchy playes into that as well.

I think it has to do with the song, but not because it's bad. It's a PI situation imo.

It's too complex, and it needs to be played a bunch of times until it clicks (just like PI, but less annoying). Her vocals can be very weird for the GP...it's not for radio, imo. And it has already damaged the era, just like PI

OT. The song is awful. The production is ok, but the structure is a mess and her annoying 'indie-girl' vocals are not cute. Also, she's Lorde, it's not like she's established.

Her old music was boring so that's what her fans expected. I think it's an amazing song.

That's just her voice.

I loathe that criticism.

The real question is: why would she do well?

She has no fanbase and she only had one hit, what do you expect

I've been trying to get into it because I really like Lorde but I just think it's ok. I like the elements of it but for me they don't really mesh well together. I hope it grows on me though

I really like the song, but it sounds weird relative to what's "in" on the radio right now.

3 points in and ready for more

I generally hate the "indie girl voice" phenomena, but I think Lorde's voice is unique to her. Weird, and has elements of "indie girl voice", but definitely unique to her (and I like it).

I mean, at least she doesn't fit the "indie girl voice" component of essentially being thrown into a pre-produced track, and becoming lost amongst a sea of other similar, breathy voices.

what? Rihanna - only relevant with rappers or DJs. Anti = urban music

Beyonce - urban artist, no pop hits since 2009

Fifth Harmony - huge hits only with rappers

Ariana Grande - same

Katy Perry - underperforming

Selena Gomez - Kygo

Halsey - Chainsmokers
