2013 was a great year for the young singer-songwriter from New Zealand, Lorde (real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor).

Lorde later won four Grammy nominations; three for “Royals” (Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance) and one for her debut album, Pure Heroine, which was released by Universal at the end of September.
