Watch Lorde’s Music Video for Her Second Single, “Team”
By now, we're sure you're aware of our feelings about Lorde, the 17-year-old singer from New Zealand who slams her fellow musicians in the press any chance she gets. However, we never said she doesn't have talent, which is why we actually watched her latest music video for the third single off her Pure Heroine album, "Team." Here's what she said of the track:
"This video was borne from a dream i had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. i dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn't need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx"
We definitely get a taste of those dreams of hers in the new MV, but we're here to pose a question to you: After watching "Team," do you believe Lorde has what it takes to be more than just a one-hit wonder? "Royals" is still a hit — topping the Hot 100 for its ninth week last week, according to Billboard — but her second single, "Tennis Court," didn't reach the same status. Watch the music video above, then tell us your thoughts in the comments!
Are Lorde and Taylor Swift best friends now or something?
