Fellow Scorpio and New Zealand singer-songwriter, Lorde is a 16-year-old pop prodigy who just unveiled her new video for Tennis Court last month. See it below:

If she seems to emerge out of nowhere, well, she hasn’t. She was the replacement for Frank Ocean, who cancelled due to illness, at the 2013 Splendour in the Grass Festival. She was contacted on July 26, 2013, the Friday immediately prior to the weekend of the festival, while she was in attendance at a party with friends in Auckland, New Zealand. As Lorde, Yelich-O’Connor performed before 10,000 people in northern Byron Bay, Australia, where the festival is based as of 2013.

Tennis Court and Swingin’ Party will be available digitally on July 2 in the U.S. For more about Lorde, please click here.
