2013 – New Zealand singer Lorde topped the UK singles chart with her debut single, ‘Royals’, making her the youngest solo artist to score a UK No.1 since 15-year-old Billie Piper’s ‘Because We Want To’ in 1998. 16 year old Lorde was signed to Universal on a development deal at just 13 years old, after a friend’s father sent them home recordings of her singing Duffy and Pixie Lott tracks.
