Did Lorde Spark This Trend?

Hello sistren!

I was going to get some stuff done around the apartment and decided to give Lorde’s “Melodrama” (AKA Album of the year only under Lana’s L4L :reductive:) another 30th listen start to finish and I noticed something in the production.

On “Sober II (Melodrama)” at approx 1:34 :diane:, there’s what I call the “rap tick”. You know, like tick-ta-tick-tick-tick? Similar to Fourth Harmony’s :sharon: “Angel”, Selena Gomez “Fetish”, LDR “Cherry”, and a few other songs also. 

So my question is, since Lorde’s album came out so early in the year, was she the original mainstream pop artist to use this production trend? (Hope my description of it makes sense, as Mary Jane Holland and I decided to bop to Melodrama together :stalkga:). 

What are your thoughts? And, in case you have not been saved and accepted Lorde’s blessing into your heart, listen below :pray::

Thanks for listening 👂 and I hope you visit me and MJH again real soon! :staymad:

Do we have ideas of other mainstream artists that have used this prior to her? I am kind of curious you know?

No, that sound has been unnecessarily thrown into pop for years - case in point:

Yes! 

Lorde released on June 16 and Lana was like “I gotta jump on this guy’s” and incorporated this effect into her entire album in a little over a month
