Join the conversation and vote below

Lorde is turning 21 years old on Tuesday, Nov. 7, and the indie pop superstar is still on the rise. Her highly anticipated sophomore album "Melodrama" dropped nearly four years after her debut "Pure Heroine" became a worldwide phenomenon. Some fans said that she has topped herself with "Melodrama." Others argue "Pure Heroine" is a masterful piece of art. So, which Lorde album is your favorite? 🎤

The Votes Are In!

Lorde's fans regard "Pure Heroine" as a classic album four years after its release. "Melodrama" has some time to go before it can be called a classic, even if fans love it!

Her #1 pop hit "Royals" cemented her status in the world of pop music. Lorde perfectly mixed dream pop (a sub-genre of alternative rock and neo-psychedelia), indie and EDM into a cohesive debut album. So it's understandable if some fans argue "Melodrama" is fantastic, but it's not on the level of "Pure Heroine."

Below are some notable lyrics to "Royals," per Genius

🎶 And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood. That kind of luxe just ain't for us.We crave a different kind of buzz. Let me be your ruler (ruler), you can call me Queen Bee. And baby I'll rule (I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule...). Let me live that fantasy.🎶

Lorde's sophomore effort "Melodrama" is finally out, and it features the hit single "Green Light" as well as "Perfect Places," "Liability" and "Homemade Dynamite." Fans are just happy she is back and of course, many are saying she has shown growth even after an amazing debut album.

Below are some significant lyrics to Green Light," per Genius

🎶'Cause honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go. I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it. Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go. I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it.🎶'
