Lorde’s new song predictions were out as soon as she dropped “Solar Power”. The video for the lead single from the upcoming same-name album has already gained 10 million views on Youtube. How successful can Lorde’s first song in four years be in terms of charts and awards?
Back in 2013, Lorde was one of the biggest sensations of the year. The young singer and songwriter from New Zealand captured the world’s attention with her album Pure Heroine and hit single “Royals”. The latter brought Lorde two Grammy awards for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song Of The Year and turned an 18-years-old girl into a superstar.
Lorde’s next studio album Melodrama was released in 2017 and had modest success in comparison to its predecessor. This summer, the singer is back with her new single “Solar Power” and the same-name album coming later this year. Let’s take a look at predictions at online sportsbooks in New Zealand to see how successful Lorde can be in 2021.
“Solar Power” to top the Australian Triple J Hottest 100
Lorde’s “Solar Power” was dropped alongside the music video on June 10th. Since the day of release, the video has reached 10 million views on Youtube, while the song entered worldwide charts. Thus, “Solar Power” debuted at #8 on Spotify with 4.5 million streams and at#7 on the First Look chart. It is predicted to enter the top-10 in the UK and Australian charts this week. Also, the song has good chances to enter Billboard Hot 100 – the main music chart in the US. If so, the song can become Lorde’s biggest hit since “Yellow Flicker Beat”.
In addition to this, 22Bet predicts “Solar Power” to win the race for the first position on Triple J Hottest 100. This is the annual poll in Australia that defines the best songs of the year. According to 12.00 odds, Lorde’s chances to get her first #1 this time. Previously, she peaked at #2 with “Royals” in 2013, having lost to Riptide’s “Vance Joy”.
Lorde’s new song predictions: to win Grammys for “Solar Power”
Early-bird Grammy predictions of “Solar Power” are also very interesting. As we know, the 24-years-old Lorde is already a two-times Grammy winner. Since her debut, Lorde has received nominations for each studio album. Her debut album Pure Heroine has brought her 3 nominations and two wins, while the second LP Melodrama added another Grammy nomination to Lorde’s accolades list.
This year, online gambling sites in New Zealand have quite optimistic Lorde’s new song predictions in terms of awards. Following the odds, Lorde has great chances to be nominated for the 2022 Grammys for her new single. Also, the upcoming album is highly likely to bring Lorde her second Album Of The Year nomination.
Following Lorde’s words, her third studio album “Solar Power” will be out in August or September 2021.
