If there was anyone that could possibly dare to upstage Beyonce, it would be Lorde.
As if her snarky comments to Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez weren't enough, Lorde decided to up the ante by releasing her new single, No Better, just half a day after Beyonce released her self-titled album.
Obviously this sent the Internet buzzing and obviously, everyone assumed the worst.
Although it might not be intentional, I honestly think that if anyone could go up against Beyonce, the Kiwi native is the perfect match.
With lyrics like, "You're no better at swimming then you were in the beginning, but you come over at night and we practice all the breathing", the beautiful singer proved just how much of a capable wordsmith she is. After all, her mother is a poet.
Generally, No Better is not as hard hitting as the rest of the songs on Lorde's Pure Heroine album but it still drips with attitude and class, exactly the way we love Lorde to be.
Does the sort of summery-pop feeling of No Better appeal to you? Let us know below!
