She's Moving Units

The people have spoken, and Lorde is already a hit. Overseas, The Love Club EP went 4x Platinum in Australia and Gold in New Zealand. Meanwhile, Pure Heroine is Platinum in New Zealand, with "Royals" having gone 3x Platinum in New Zealand, and Platinum in Canada and Australia. "Tennis Court" is not too far behind, with Platinum certifications in New Zealand and Australia.

She's taking her track record Stateside too. "Royals" has reached the Number One spot on Billboard's Hot 100, with Lorde being the youngest artist since Tiffany—who released "I Think We're Alone Now" back in 1987—to top charts. Lorde's single also set a record for the Longest No. 1 at Alternative Radio by a Female Artist (per her press release), sitting at the top of the charts for seven whole weeks. And finally Pure Heroine just landed at No. 3 on the albums chart and moved 129,000 copies in its first week.
