Drum roll please…

For the first time in SEVENTEEN YEARS, a female solo artist is topping the alternative music charts.

And her name be Lorde!!!

Yay!!! Yay!!! YAY!!!

Our little Kiwi got her first #1 single spot on Billboard's Alt list with her song Royals!

The 16-year-old becomes the first woman to do so since Tracy Bonham's song Mother, Mother won the top spot way back in June of 1996.

Just how long ago was that? Um, Lorde wasn't even BORN yet!!! That's how long ago that was!

We are THA-RILLED to hear this news. And we'll be even more thrilled when we get to hear Lorde's first full-length US album, debuting next month!

The LP now has a name too!

Pure Heroine!

OMG! Want!

If you have somehow managed to miss out hearing Lorde's AH-Mazing music, do your ears a favor …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Congratz little Lorde! We're certain you'll have many more milestones and #1s to come!!!

    This girl is the definition of overrated. Not that good a voice, mediocre lyrics. Just because she's 16 doesn't mean she's "brilliant" or "genius" for writing her own songs, which aren't even clever wordplay. Stop trying to make Lorde happen, Perez.

    She looks like a mix of Lana Del Rey & Emma Stone,
    I don't know why I see Emma I just do lol.

    Definitely NOT overrated bro. Great voice, great lyrics, and age shouldn't even come into the equation. She's. Just. Good. Billboard #1's the next chart she tops.

    Sounds like a very grounded girl…. do yourself a favor and listen to the 2009 radio interview of her when she was 12 !
