The artist, whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, has since made a large impression on the music industry with her unique voice and sounds.
Melodrama, her second studio album released in 2017, made Lorde’s experimental stamp on the electropop genre.
The album, with its most popular track ‘Green Light’, became an instant hit. It won a New Zealand Music Award for Album of the Year in her home country, and was even nominated for Album of the Year at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in 2018.
This year alone, Lorde won the award for the Best Song In The World at the NME Awards for ‘Solar Power’, beating fellow nominee Justin Bieber for the winning spot.
Considering Lorde’s success at such a young age, having been only 16 years old at the start of her career, fans are left wondering what the star is now worth nine years on.
As of 2022, Lorde has an estimated net worth of $16 million (£13 million) according to CelebrityNetWorth.
Lorde’s music career began in 2009, when she signed with Universal Music Group.
She later released her first studio album, Pure Heroine, in September 2013.
‘Royals’, Lorde’s most famous track from Pure Heroine, became one of the best selling singles of all time, selling over 10 million copies and ranking ninth on Rolling Stone magazine’s top 100 songs of the century so far in 2018.
The 25 year old is due to perform this Sunday evening at Glastonbury Festival on the Pyramid Stage, representing New Zealand’s musical talent alongside rock band Crowded House.
Reflecting on the mixed response to Solar Power, her third studio album, on its one year anniversary, Lorde stated that it was “really confounding and at times painful to sit with at first.”
Despite this, Lorde confessed, “I learned a ton about myself and how I’m perceived by making and releasing this album, and I feel significantly more connected and alive in my art practice and life than pretty much ever before.”
Lorde still lives in her home city of Auckland, New Zealand, in a four bedroom mansion she forked out $2.8 million AUD (£1.6 million) for in 2016.
