One of Lorde’s career-defining moments was the success of smash hit “Royals” – it seemed to follow me everywhere I went! In an interview, the singer told Billboard that she was able to write the song very quickly.
“Yeah, I was just at my house, and I wrote it before I went to the studio,” the singer said. “I wrote it in like half an hour — the lyrics, anyway. I wrote all the lyrics and took them to the studio and my producer [Joel Little] was like, ‘Yeah, this is cool.’ We worked on that and on two other songs on the EP in a week, and just did a little bit every day.”
