In 2014 and 2015 alone, it sold 3.4 million copies.
I do like Lorde’s song writing – she is a poet. And I understand that the album is intended to highlight her voice and vocal range.
Perhaps I’m just not ‘target audience, but I find this album musically dull. The label “electro-pop’ sounds like music industry marketese for “couldn’t be arsed paying for musicians to play actual musical instruments.”
