Where They Are Now: The flavor of the moment, Lorde’s “Royals” has now tied Robin Thicke’s “ Blurred Lines” as the longest-running No. 1 of the year on the Billboard Hot 100. The 17-year old is also proving to be quite the agent provocateur in interviews, willing to bite at the heels of fellow artists like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift.
Where They May Be in 5 Years: She will either be a one-hit wonder (in the States; she’s already had more hits in her native New Zealand) or one of the saviors of music. After such a massive hit as “Royals,” it’s hard to imagine her ever surpassing its popularity with another tune, but her talent is just developing. She could be a major player still in 2018.
