Lorde Rules the Billboard Hot 100 [VIDEOS]


With a song dispelling the commercial nature of pop-stars and their extravagant lifestyles Ella Yelich-O’Connor, better known as Lorde, is now queen of the Billboard Hot 100.



That’s right folks, she has effectively dethroned Miley Cyrus, and is the youngest solo artist to sit atop the charts since Tiffany, who was merely 16 years and one month old when she topped the charts in 1987 with ‘I Think We’re Alone Now‘. Lorde will reach 17 next month.

Lorde is also the first woman to claim the #1 spot with her debut single since Carly Rae Jepesen did it last year with ‘Call me Maybe.’ While it has taken her a little while to climb the Hot 100, Lorde is no stranger to topping the alternative chart. She recently set the record for the longest stay at #1 with seven weeks, breaking the five week record previously held by Alanis Morissette‘s ‘You Oughta Know.’



The New Zealand native has a lot going on right now she has been  announced as one of the featured artists on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack – she will cover the ’80s Tears for Fears classic ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World,’ and is also promoting her first album Pure Heroine which is now available.
