Popular teenage artist Lorde, who is best known for her hit song "Royals," had previously said she would like to write lyrics for a K-Pop group. She further showed her interest in K-Pop during an interview with Universal Music.
She 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 even sang a little bit of Lee Hi's "1,2,3,4."
Lorde, who is the same age as Lee Hi, explained her reasons for liking K-Pop: "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."
During the interview, she also revealed that she was not a great dancer. Lorde said, "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."
Lorde released her studio album 'Pure Heroine' in late September.
