17 year old singer-songwriter Lorde has confessed that she is quite a fan of rapper Drake’s new album ‘Nothing Was The Same’.

The singer, from New Zealand has said that she likes it so much because of the emotion it conveys and even called it one of her favourite albums of the year.

Lorde, who shot to fame in the UK with her debut single ‘Royals’ spoke with Rolling Stone magazine and discussed the album which was released in September of last year.

The singer spoke about the emotion that she felt when listening to the album.

She said: “I like soul-baring music, and there are some tasty jams on this album. There aren’t that many dudes in Drake’s position that are so emo.”

“He does those moments of I’m f**king this beautiful woman, but I’m so sad!” so well.”

Lorde also added: “You expect that from him. I saw heaps of funny things about him on Twitter, like, ‘When it’s raining, that means they’re listening to Drake in heaven.'”

The ‘Royals’ sensation also revealed recently that she isn’t a fan of some of the names given to her by journalists, in particular calling her a “hottie” would make her want to throw up.

Speaking to the New York Times she said: “The phrase ‘teen hottie’ literally makes me want to throw up. I’m a pop princess at heart.”


“Pop is about distilling what you want to say and making it easy. And the way I write isn’t about making things easy. It’s a weird juxtaposition.”

Back in November Lorde also discussed listening to rappers but how she really couldn’t get on board with what they were talking about because she couldn’t relate to them:

“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey.”

“They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn’t relate to me — or anyone that I knew.”
