The 17-year-old is at it again, with another gripping music video for her new single ‘Team.’ Check it out and tell us if you like it more than ‘Royals.’

Lorde Releases Dark New Music Video For ‘Team’

The video was released on Dec. 5 on Vevo and it actually crashed the site! Here are some of the lyrics:

“We live in cities you’ll never see on screen/Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things/Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams / And you know, we’re on each other’s team.”

She talked about this video on her Facebook page and explained her inspiration for it!

This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to.

Lorde Disses Nicki and Drake

The free-spirited singer says she’s not happy with Drake or Nicki Minaj‘s music at all.

“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake. YMCMB rappers create music that does not relate to most people’s lives,” Lorde told the mag. “They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn’t relate to me, or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It’s completely irrelevant.'”

One thing is for sure, Lorde isn’t afraid to speak her mind! HollywoodLifers, what do you think of her new music video?
