Lorde just dropped her new single “Green Light,” complete with a music video. The pulsing, moody track has Lorde waiting for a chance to let go as she remembers the good and bad times in a a relationship. But, for some, the sound and lyrics of “Green Light” are raising some red flags. Critics claim Lorde’s new track sounds a lot like a song from Taylor Swift.
One person who doesn’t seem to mind the comparison is Taylor herself. The snake queen of pop posted to Instagram about how much she enjoyed Lorde’s “magnificent bop for the ages.” It comes as no surprise given that Taylor has been eager to keep Lorde in her good graces after they started out on some rocky footing.
