Lorde breaks Alanis Morissette’s Billboard chart record!
The Kiwi teen’s smash hit ‘Royals’ has broken Morissette’s record for the longest stay at the top of Billboard’s Alternative chart by a female singer, after leading the chart for six weeks and surpassing ‘You Oughta Know’s five-week stint.
When ‘Royals’ hit the #1 spot five weeks ago, Lorde became the first female chart topper since Tracy Bonham’s ‘Mother Mother’ took the title back in June 1996 – five months before the 16-year-old was even born!
Today, it was announced that the ‘Tennis Court’ singer is up for a nomination in the Worldwide Act category at the ‘2013 MTV EMA,’ up against other Kiwi favourites David Dallas, Shapeshifter, Stan Walker and The Naked and Famous.
Could Lorde be one of the final 10 Worldwide Act nominees going head-to-head for the accolade at the EMAs on November 11?
