Who doesn’t like a powerful female voice? We here at THP surely do, and that is exactly why we stan Lorde. Lorde’s music is known for lyrics that are both inspiring and engaging. Her words generally capture the core of every situation, providing a sense of shared experience and unity among her fans.
Her undeniable talent and originality
Lorde has undeniably accomplished considerably more than the average 20-year-old. With only two albums, she was able to achieve a number one record and two Grammys, and her comeback single, ‘Solar Power‘ has already surpassed 50 million streams. ‘Solar Power’ is a gentle ode to the basic joys of the seasons: warm sun, warm beach, a partner who will take your photo, and the freedom to say no to things you don’t love. This song leaves us impatient for the release of her third album on August 20th.
She embraces her uniqueness
Lorde’s quirky dancing and strange stage performances were mocked when she first appeared on the scene, but they quickly became her signature. By embracing her individuality, which was first rejected, she evolved into an artist who captivated the audience and demonstrated to us the importance of being ourselves and accepting our flaws.
Lorde makes looking cool appear effortless, and she has been a wonderful inspiration with the different and unusual clothes she wore on stage during her globe tour. Lorde’s style has altered throughout time, but one thing is certain: she still has it!
She is a Feminist
While speaking with host Lara Logan in 2017, Lorde was asked what feminism meant to her, and her response was admirable. “I mean, it’s totally not about me. It’s about all the women who may not have the opportunities that I have, all the privileges that I have Feminism is about trying to fight for better conditions and better treatment of all women, whether that be trans women, or women of color, or…women in professions that don’t get a lot of respect. That, to me, is what feminism is all about.” We simply have to love her here!
She is a Philanthropist
Lorde has been involved in several philanthropic causes. From 2013 up to now, supporting the people in the Philippines who suffered from Typhoon Haiyan, the cure of Batten disease, the preservation of the Tibetan Culture, a New Zealand charity that provides lunches for underprivileged schoolchildren, she donated to Starship Hospital, and she became a patron of MusicHelps.
