One minute she’s a nobody and the next minute she’s number 1 all over the charts. Her song “Royals” has been played on almost every radio station and she’s only 16! It seems to be perfect timing for her birthday on November 7. What’s a better birthday present than having a hit single remain number one on the charts for 6 weeks? Lorde’s song “Royals” has been at number 1 for 5 weeks now and there’s nothing stopping her from staying at the top.
