New Zealand Solo artist with a sultry voice and something to say: Lorde admitted in an interview with Universal Music recently that she’s a mad fan of k-pop!
Lorde said, "Personally, I really like K-Pop groups. I particularly like the musician Lee Hi. I want to try a collaboration with Lee Hi. I also like 2NE1." She then sang a little bit of Lee Hi's "1,2,3,4."
"It is because their melodies and songs are very interesting. Their melodies are a lot more charming than the Western pop which I grew up listening to. If it is pop music, it should be to that extent."
She went on to affirm that she's probably need some dance lessons first...
"I think I need to receive a dancing lesson from Girls' Generation."
She continued, "If I get the chance, I definitely want to go to Korea and meet everyone. I hope that my present album has music that holds significance to everyone."
Let's hope more artists of Lorde's callibre cotton-on to the wonders of Asian pop! Would you be excited to hear a Lee Hi/Lorde collaboration?
