Lorde's Latest Album MELODRAMA Exemplifies How Great Pop Music Can Be

Posted at June 22nd, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in Entertainment, Featured, GVO Opinion, Music, Pop

Lorde just released her new album and it is all anyone in the scene can talk about. The stench from the album’s drop hasn’t even cleared yet and it is already climbing the charts. But that’s not what Melodrama or Lorde is about. On paper she is as teen pop as it gets and her rise in the last 5 years or so has been purely indicative of that, with her having her own cult of fans and all. But if you can grasp the story she’s trying to tell with Melodrama, she’s far from teen-pop.

 

 

She lets it all fly in Melodrama. After this album she has solidified her role to pop music just like Frank Ocean is to R&B and what Kendrick Lamar is to Hip-Hop. Green Light is one of the best tracks from the album and while your average Taylor Swift would’ve limited it to intense looks and reparte, Lorde makes it seem like the most complicated game of checkers.

 

 

For the first 4 tracks, she rips out a bunch of alter egos from within her and puts them to use. She raps, she gets real and seems like the most mature 20 year old you will ever seen all the while keeping you hooked like time has stopped.   

“Jack and Jill get fucked up and possessive when it get dark.”

For the second leg of the album, she keeps knockin out verses and is her alluring self every step of the way. One of the most consistent albums we’ve seen.

Our pick of the album is Sober.
