Singer Lorde likes 2NE1 and wants to collaborate with Lee Hi?
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.”
